Mastering Composition

Mastering Composition

Author and professional photographer Richard Garvey-Williams analyses the concepts, rules and guidelines that define successful composition in photography and offers practical guidance to achieving great results. The book is illustrated with examples of the author's own beautiful nature photography, along with diagrams and notation to explain techniques most clearly.

Richard Garvey-Williams was fortunate to have spent much of his up-bringing in East Africa and naturally developed a love for the wildlife that was so abundant at that time. On leaving school he obtained a degree in Zoology from Manchester University, but it was only later that his passion for the natural world was re-kindled, largely by linking it to his other love – photography. In addition to exhibiting prints and publishing his work, Richard regularly leads photographic safaris and landscape photography workshop holidays abroad, in addition to workshops and tutorials to individuals and small groups at his South Devon home.
