A new book coming out August 4 is National Geographic Kids Guide to Photography: Tips & Tricks on How To Be a Great Photographer From the Pros & Your Pals at My Shot (whew, a long title!)

Written by National Geographic photographer Annie Griffiths and children’s author Nancy Honovich, this book provides a chock-full of useful information.


National Geographic Kids Guide to Photography is the most comprehensive, up-to-date guide to covering every facet of photography and photo equipment: from smartphones to point-and-shoot to SLR to even underwater cameras. Presented in a kid-friendly format, this fun, fact-filled book is packed with all the essentials for budding photographers.

As you know, few art forms have changed more over the last decade than photography. The technological advances have made it much more accessible, and now everyone, including kids, is walking around with some kind of camera in their pocket. It’s more important than ever to teach kids the right habits that will serve them well for the rest of their lives, as the deceptive ease of use of the new devices pushes aside the foundations of good photography.

Annie has traveled the world with her kids and has taught them photography along the way. The pages are colorful and easy to read for the age group recommended (8-12).




Take Note: This book is for kids who really, really like photography.
