Amherst Media began as a leading mail order distributor for all manner of photography-related publications. With the first printing of Basic 35mm Camera Guide, we began our transition into publisher of photography books. In the 25 years since, Amherst Media has become the best source for original, in depth, photographic instruction. From amateur photographers and serious photographers to the world's leading professional photographers, we have something to offer all of them.
