Welcome to Nature Photo Guides!

Nature Photo Guides features the photography of Sarah Marino and Ron Coscorrosa, high-quality educational photography ebooks, photography resources, and stories about our travels around the United States in an Airstream trailer. 


We are landscape photographers who are based in the Rocky Mountain West but spend a significant part of each year traveling around the United States and beyond.  We used to camp and live out of our SUV for long stretches of time but recently upgraded to a silvery home-away-from-home, a 25-foot Airstream trailer.  Our Airstream enables us to work from the road while photographing, experiencing new places, and enjoying as many good meals along the way as we can find.  You can learn more about each of us here: 

About Our E-books 

We have published three well-received e-books: Forever Light, The Landscape Photographer's Guide to Iceland, Desert Paradise: The Landscape Photographer's Guide to Death Valley, and Beyond the Grand Landscape: A Guide to Photographing Nature's Smaller Scenes.  Every photography e-book we publish comes in a PDF format and...

  • Contains high quality and high-resolution photographs, worthy of hanging on your wall, to both inspire and inform.
  • Includes useful, detailed, accurate, and thoughtful information for all levels of photographers.
  • Has original subject matter, or presents subject matter in a unique or personal way.
  • Is honest, as we will not promote nor endorse any product or service that we ourselves do not use.

We realize that there is a saturated market for photography e-books right now so we aim to stand out by providing high quality e-books that we ourselves would find useful and that will exceed your expectations.

About Our Gear and Approach to Photo Processing

Since we get quite a few questions about the gear we use and our approach to photo processing, we have put together a brief overview for each topic.  You can access these sections by clicking on the buttons below. 

Get in Touch

If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us.  Although it may take some time to get back to you because we travel quite a bit, we try to respond to every email we receive about our photography, travel, or e-books.
