Steve Davey is a photographer and writer, based in Somerset. Blessed and cursed in equal measure with a low boredom threshold, he has turned travel photography into a way of life, as well as a career.
Steve first got hooked on photography at school. The mix of creativity and technicality seemed to suit his personality and he realised that photography could make a good lifestyle: leaving school during the day was forbidden but, if he was stopped with a camera, he could just say that he was off to take some photos. He has used this excuse ever since and, remarkably, people still believe it.
Steve is the author and principal photographer of Unforgettable Places to See Before You Die and Unforgettable Islands to Escape To Before You Die, both published by BBC Books. Between them, these titles have been published in over 40 language editions.
Steve’s has recently published an extensively revised edition of Footprint Travel Photography (Footprint Handbooks, 2013). This comprehensive guide covers almost everything that you could ever want to know about the practicalities and technicalities of travel photography, including post-processing. The book has been updated for new software, and features over a hundred new photographs. Click here for more information.
Steve has also recently published an exciting new book entitled Around the World in 500 Festivals, which is the most comprehensive guide to the cultural celebrations available.
Steve writes regular travel photography features for a range of different publications.
Steve has been running Better Travel Photography tours since 2009, which has given him vital experience in teaching, and also what it takes to successful run photo-tours. He has established excellent links with some of the biggest names in the adventure travel industry and will always draw on the best people to provide the land arrangements for any trip.
