At the end of each year for the past couple of years I have compiled my ‘top shots’ from the previous 12 months and put them into a hardbound book. The subject matter covers the entire gamut of my photography from wildlife and raptors to landscapes.
Tony’s Takes 2019
A photo year to remember! A once-in-a-lifetime trip filled with stunning landscapes and amazing wildlife was the highlight of my year but there was plenty of other extraordinary opportunities closer to home.
The 2019 edition of my photo book includes a trip to Alaska where the scenery begged to have its picture taken and animals big and small were in abundance. Capping off the trip was an excursion to Katmai National Park and Preserve where we spent a day photographing the impressive brown bears.
Beyond that, mammals from the small American pika to the massive moose were captured by my cameras in places as varied as the Great Plains to the peak of 14,000 foot high mountains. Most notable was my best year yet photographing foxes.
Birds large and small from little backyard birds to my favorite photo subject, the majestic bald eagle, were captured. Throw in the stunning landscapes of Colorado and there is a wide variety of images to please anyone.
Contained within a 11 1/4? x 8 3/4? hardcover book are 62 pages of my favorite photographs from 2019. I am sure it will be a bit hit with you or a worthy recipient of your choosing. The 2018 edition is $54.95 plus $8.00 shipping. Please allow 10 to 14 days to receive.
Tony’s Takes 2018
While my travels didn’t take me far this year, I think the photography was some of my best work yet. All images in the 2018 edition of my book were taken in my home state of Colorado. That is not, however, a bad thing as we have an amazing variety of landscapes and wildlife.
My year started out with a few amazing days spent with the rare snowy owl, my photo event of the year.
From there, I continued to capture images of the amazing things that nature has to offer. From the sprawling scenes of the Great Plains to the intimidating peaks of the Rocky Mountains. Within those, creatures large and small from the tiny American pika to the massive moose of the high country.
This year’s book is my biggest ever, offering 52 pages of full color imagery in a 11 1/4″ x 8 3/4″ hardcover. I am confident you, or whoever you give it to, will enjoy it for years to come. The 2018 edition is $49.95 plus $8.00 shipping. Please allow 10 to 14 days to receive.
Tony’s Takes 2017
An extraordinary year for me in terms of photography and in particular, some of the subjects I was able to capture. Yes, there is the usual wildlife and landscapes, however in 2017 there was more.
August brought what I call the ‘photo event of the year’, the total solar eclipse. I also had some amazing wildlife encounters including one with the rarest wildlife in North America.
I switched suppliers for my book in 2017 which allows me to keep the costs down while offering more pages – there are 36 full color pages of imagery in this year’s edition. It is hardbound and perfect for gift giving or for sitting on your own coffee table.
The 2017 edition is $49.95 plus $8.00 shipping. Please allow 10 to 14 days to receive.
Tony’s Takes 2016
A first for me – a photo book. I spent a lot of time working on this at the end of 2016 and had to keep it a secret as I couldn’t risk the honored first recipient of it, my mom, finding out about it.
It is a hardbound, 8 x 12 inch, 24 page book of all my ‘top shots’ from the past year – wildlife, landscapes and more – with a very special dedication. You can preview the content below.
The book is now available for purchase for $75.00 plus $8.00 shipping. Please allow 10 to 14 days to receive.
