Viewfinding: Photographs, Perspectives and Travel Tales

Photographer, storyteller and outdoorsman Jim Nevill takes us on two decades of travels though Alaska, Peru, Mexico and many Western States while connecting his art to personal epiphanies. Viewfinding is a source of inspiration and motivation for anyone seeking to broaden their horizons. This 174 page coffee table book is filled with an eclectic mix of photos ranging from landscapes, long exposures, surf travel and cultural events. The result is a fresh, dynamic and thought provoking account of life behind and beyond the lens. 

What sets Viewfinding apart from other books in the same category is its purposeful blend of beautiful imagery and inspiring narratives. Since its launch on Black Friday 2023, Viewfinding has garnered immense popularity and acclaim, quickly becoming the #1 New Release in Amazon's Photo Collections category. The positive reception reflects the widespread appeal of Nevill's work. Whether you are a photography enthusiast, in search of inspiration or simply appreciate the beauty of visually stunning books and great storytelling, this is a must-have addition to your collection.

 Author: Jim Nevill is a professional photographer, drone pilot, author and founder of a non-profit organization that led teens on wilderness adventures for over two decades.  Jim is driven by a true love for photography and a desire to use his art to help individuals and businesses better express their stories. His commercial work has been widely published, including the New York Times, Miami Herald, San Francisco Chronicle, NBC News, National Geographic and more. Jim's newly published coffee table book, Viewfinding became the #1 new release on Amazon in late 2023 and combines inspirational stories, life lessons and his travel photography. His fine art prints are displayed in homes and commercial spaces worldwide.

Jim grew up in Rockville Centre, NY about 13 miles from JFK Airport. After earning a Psychology degree with PSY CHI honors from the University of Dayton in 1995, Jim moved to coastal Northern California where he now lives with his wife and two children.
