If you visit Canberra from time to time (or you are an ACT resident), you may have seen Scott Leggo's gallery. Scott has certainly built up an impressive portfolio of images around Canberra and the Snowy Mountains, but it wasn't until I purchased his book Australia - A Photographic Journey that I learnt his portfolio extended across the entire continent.
Priced at $75 (including delivery in Australia), the premium quality, hard cover coffee table book has 224 pages and approximately 200 photographs. It is a wonderful example of highly-coloured landscape photography that meets a market. It's not designed for other photographers as much as it is for the tourists - or for Australians wanting to send a gift overseas. When you put the book into this perspective, Scott really has done a great job.
So, why should another photographer purchase the book? Research! Inspiration! Ideas! I have to say my favourites are the alpine areas in winter and I must get myself down there again. I used to camp out overnight and go ski-touring, always taking a camera with me, but never capturing it quite the way Scott has. He has found some magnificent light - and so research alone is a good reason to support a fellow photographer!
