Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Der Fotograf Mario Dirks wurde auf der Insel Norderney geboren. Seine ersten Kameraerfahrungen machte er im jungen Alter von sechs Jahren mit einer einfachen Lochkamera, seitdem ist er der Faszination Fotografie verfallen. Nach der autodidaktischen Weiterentwicklung und diversen Schulungen vollzog er 1998 den beruflichen Wechsel an das Oldenburgische Staatstheater. Hier sammelte er vielfältige Erfahrungen im künstlerischen Bereich und assistierte dem Theaterfotografen Andreas J. Etter.

Seine ersten Fotoausstellungen hatte er auf Norderney, in Oldenburg, Bad Zwischenahn und Oberhausen. Seit 2007 bietet er mit großem Erfolg eigene Workshops und Seminare in seinem Fotostudio in Oldenburg und auf seiner Heimatinsel Norderney an. Porträt, Landschaft, Architektur, Studio und Bildgestaltung sind nur einige der spannenden Themen.

2011 und 2012 war Mario Dirks für den Kamera- und Objektivhersteller SIGMA im Rahmen der „Our World Tour” als Fotograf auf der ganzen Welt unterwegs, um fantastische Eindrücke mit der Kamera einzufangen. 2012 wurden seine Fotos unter anderem auf der Photokina in Köln und der Frankfurter Buchmesse ausgestellt. Neben vielen Berichten in den einschlägigen Fotozeitschriften hat er seine Reise in diesem Buch zusammengefasst.

Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
There is no question that Mario Dirks has taken some smashing photos. The guy has genuine, sometimes exquisite, talent. But what he didn't have, perhaps, is a good editor. Starting with the cover photo, which looks like a clever commercial for a new car, the book is so crammed with pictures that only a few really stand out. The book itself is hard to handle, wants to close up on you, so worshipful appreciation of some of the pictures is well nigh impossible. I wanted to say, "Slow down, slow down, please." Some pages hold up to 4-5 pictures which does none of them justice.

Also, I thought the layout lacking in finesse and structure. Of course, the thrust of the book is geographical, but it seems to me that categories of people, places, things, landscapes might have worked better. But that might entail more than one book! In fact, the layout could have been more presentable, understandable and beautiful had the one book turned into four. This book almost fell into the category of "family vacation photos."

Finally, a word about the words. Unfortunately, the prose is pedestrian and often does not give you the details that you want to hear. Sure, Dirks is a photographer and is oriented spatially rather than verbally. He is more familiar with form than sound -- and it shows. For example, he writes, "The first (sightseeing tour) is my first-ever ride on an elephant." So far, so good. He now has the opportunity of using his memory and imagination to rhapsodize about this experience. But all we get is, "Being carried through countryside some ten feet off the ground is an incredible experience." Incredible? At least, thank god, he didn't use that ubiquitous word, "amazing." But the thing is, because there is so little emotion in the writing, there is also very little depth.

In short, the book does not do Mario Dirks' photos justice, but I'm glad we have them anyway.

This book would be a welcome addition to any photographer's library. It is one of those rare books that explains how, why, when and where a particular image was created with just enough technical information about the image to satisfy those of us who want to know what focal length, ISO, shutter speed and Fstop was used in each picture.
The premise of the book is unique. The author, Mario Dirks, a photographer from Germany, was supplied with all new high end equipment from a camera company and sent on an all-expense paid 50-week tour around the world. That alone would make for an exciting read. It is, however, one of the minor faults of the book. One can certainly travel the entire globe in 50 weeks, but this was an attempt to visit and photograph 75 different cities or locales in that time period.
The result is a very good try, but the end result seems to be a bit rushed. He tried to cram too much into the time and space allotted. I would rather read a bit more about his adventures in each city or locale and see more pictures of each that was allowed. For instance, he starts off in Washington, D. C. but there are only 3 pictures from there. There are 5 shots from N.Y. City, six from Rome, six from St. Petersburg, Russia, five from Melbourne, Australia etc.. you get my point. The photographs themselves are excellent, well exposed, sharp, clear and interesting but I wanted to read and see more.
For anyone planning a photo expedition, this book is a good example of what to expect and how to do it. The book will make you want to be sure to travel with your camera and the right equipment. I have spent many hours browsing through it and will no doubt spend more time doing so.
Disclaimer--- I was sent a free copy of this book by the publisher to review.

Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Our World Tour chronicles a couple's tour around the world in pictures. The author is a professional photographer and was sponsored by a camera company to use their gear and to make a complete trip around the world.

The author is an excellent photographer and put a lot of effort in finding the most beautiful and interesting places to shoot during his trip. The photos are laid out in order of the locations that he visited and along with them are a few paragraphs about his stay in each location. He explains his approach to getting each of the shots, whether it be getting up at 4am to beat the crowd and capture golden sunrise or choosing a particular filter and lens combination for striking effect.

Every photograph is accompanied with a description of the ISO, focal length, shutter speed, aperture, and filters; if you see an effect that you like, you can try to replicate it. He tells you whether he shot by hand or with a tripod and sometimes goes into an explanation for why he chose a particular camera setting.

The book is printed on paper slightly thicker than a normal book. I would describe the paper as having some luster, but not fully glossy. Many of the photographs take up a full page or even two full pages.

Because it isn't a hard-cover, I probably wouldn't consider it a good coffee table book. The pictures are up to the task, but I think I'd want a hard cover if I was going to put it on display.

This book has so much to offer anyone and everyone. Stunning photos from around the world with some small articles pertaining to the photographer's travels and trials. I feel like I have been on vacation just looking at each and every wonderful sight.
I also choose this book for another reason entirely though. I wanted and was hoping that with each of the photos that the photographer took there might be specs on what he used for settings to take them. I was rewarded handsomely for this account. There is indeed specs and they are going to help me with my photography so much. I am more of a visual person so having photos and specs shows me exactly where I need to go and what I have been doing wrong.
As I do with lots of books I find them informational as well as educational. This book is more educational and eye pleasing for the couch vacationer that can't afford to see all the beauty that the world has blessed us with. Truly an exceptional work of art here and will make a great coffee table book that I'm sure all you know will complement you on and they will pick up each time they visit just to see what other wonders they might have missed.

This is far more than just a coffee table book. Yes, it will look great on your coffee table and friends will want to look longingly at the all the the beautiful pictures, but if you are a photographer or someone learning photography, this book will be very valuable and interesting beyond the pretty pictures. You can easily overlook that Sigma is a sponsor of this book and just enjoy the technique, style and expertise of the photographer. For each photo he lists the lens, the focal length, the aperture, shutter speed and ISO plus any other helpful information. There is also a very entertaining narrative about each city along his route, and why he chose the shots he did out of thousands of possibilities. I can totally relate when he says, "it's the only shot I could get in a downpour", or from a "fast moving tour bus that didn't want to stop for pictures." His adventure must have been amazing. I really envy him the experience (and the equipment). I hesitated to get this book, DON'T!
