I recently made a "sizeable" purchase with NatureScapes and I couldn't be happier with the services provided! I was shopping for a new Gitzo tripod, Wimberley head and several related accessories. One of the things that immediately caught my attention was that NatureScapes offered discount "bundle" pricing on the tripod+leg covers and the Wimberley head+cover that none of the other "big name (internet) stores" offered. NatureScapes also sells a custom-designed Gitzo “safety plate” which adds increased strength to the tripod head for supporting heavy lenses. The safety plate was “free” with the purchase of the tripod, so that was another benefit for me. NatureScapes provided lightning-quick responses to multiple email questions (both before, and after my purchase), and the owner of the company spoke to me, at length, on the telephone. Processing and delivery of the order was quick, convenient, and painless (I used PayPal) – with free shipping, no less! As a first-time customer, I am glad to say that it was an absolutely flawless transaction, and I wouldn't hesitate to do business with NatureScapes again.
I cannot say enough good things about the Op/Tech Pro Strap I purchased a few weeks ago. I had a previous version of the Op/Tech strap on a different camera. The curve of the strap is what drew me to this one. Makes all the difference, especially if you are carrying a camera with a long tele lens.

Great book with all the information needed to get you to good locations at the right time of day and season. The included GPS coordinates are very helpful and the pictures excellent.
Advantages: Excellent choice of locations, and I like the organization of the book by sunrise/sunset.
Disadvantages: The book could use a few more locations, for example Covert Arch. Information on normal shooting direction wold also be helpful. I'd love to see more book in this series - e.g. one on Canyonlands, or other area shoots such as the Delta Pool or Tukuhnikivats Arch.

The Essential Guide to Photographing Arches National Park, is exactly that, Essential. If you are new to Arches NP and you are a photographer of any skill level you need this guide. As an photo enthusiast on the other side of Utah I know it takes years to really get to know these parks. Wouldn’t you love to go to a NP with a little insider information, like where to drive, GPS coordinates, best time of day, elevation change, where to compose, and hiking difficulty. Not only that but you have a real photographer suggesting lenses, filters, and composition. Brett provides all of this with beautiful photography and intelligent text.
The only negative I see is that I would love to have this in a nice printed book so I could stuff this in my camera bag and take it along.
I really appreciate the photographers that welcome and help other photographers. Thanks for taking the time to write this ebook.
Advantages: Essential and Insider Knowledge for any photographer visiting Arches NP
Disadvantages: I wish it was in print form too.

Bret's guide was very helpful in getting me to the best photo locations in Arches National Park.
Advantages: The guide has accurate GPS coordinates along with pictures of each location. The pictures allowed me to choose which locations to visit during a visit with a limited amount of time.

Excellent layout and well thought out. I like the included shooting facts for approach, best time of day, things to be mindful of and other pertinent facts regarding each shoot. Also adding some "alternative" areas to photograph is a plus, not just the iconic shots.
Advantages: Concise and easily navigable. Each location is basically one page and includes hiking notes and GPS coordinates.
Disadvantages: Too short!
