The number of people who can say they’ve visited all 59 of America’s national parks comprise a fairly small club. Only one person has made large-format photographs in all of them. In the 400 vividly sharp images in his beautiful and inspiring, coffee-table book Treasured Lands: A Photographic Odyssey Through America’s National Parks, photographer QT Luong distills the results of more than 20 years and 300 trips hiking, paddling, diving, skiing, snowshoeing, and climbing in every park, every type of environment, every season, and at all times of day and night.

Now, in an interview with The Big Outside, Luong talks about this project and offers his top five tips for shooting outdoors, for photographers from amateurs to pros.

    What a unique post! I’ll bet photographing all 59 was quite a mission for him and must have required mental and physical strength! But it must have been breathtaking! I absolutely agree with him; everyone should revisit the most beautiful places, even if it’s just to spend a few extra moments enjoying the view (without the lens). Varying perspective is also such an important one for photographers; you never know – some of the best photos are the unlikely ones that you take by accident! I know this from experience!
