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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen beautiful photography 9. August 2014
Von J. York - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
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.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Eye Candy For The Photo Lover! 6. August 2014
Von Theresa M. Studer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
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.
5.0 von 5 Sternen More than just a pretty book 6. August 2014
Von pebbles - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
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!
5.0 von 5 Sternen Inspired photography... 18. August 2014

Photographer Mario Dirks landed an amazing opportunity to spend an entire year traveling and photographing some of the most fascinating places in the world and shares his experiences in this beautifully put together photo book.

The photography on each page is eye-catching, creative and captures the essence of each destination. There's a mix of landscapes, people, sights that evoke the mood of its subject.

Dirks also shares his shares his thoughts and day to day experiences alongside the photos to give the reader insight into his travels and how he was able to achieve particular photographs. You also get an idea of what each place is like to visit in case you're thinking of traveling there.

The shutter speed, aperture and lense is mentioned with the photos as well.

As an occasional photographer and someone who loves to travel, I definintely enjoyed this beautiful book to inspire great photography and find places to add to my travel wishlist.
4.0 von 5 Sternen A different kind of photography lesson book 18. August 2014
Von E. Barron - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
Mario Dirks is a writer and a photographer who had the dream job of traveling for 50 weeks for SIGMA and documenting all his photographic work. While this book is mostly photos, the author's periodic narratives are well written and include additional photo tips. For example, regarding one location, he suggested staying nearby so that you could stay around and photograph the site in all kinds of light. However, the biggest resource in this book for the serious photographer, is the simple description at the bottom on each picture that describes how it was taken. For example under a magical photo of the underground cisterns in Istanbul is the notation: "I used a wide aperture to keep the shutter speed and image noise within reason. 10mm. ISO 200. f/3.5. 10sec." For me this is TMI (too much information), but for the serious photographer, this would be a gold mine.
