How much are the ebooks?
Where can I get them from?
What is the Global Photo Guides series?
What makes these ebooks different to traditional travel guides?
Secondly, a printed guide can’t include the level of interactivity that a digital product can. Using an eBook format has allowed us to make the experience much more immersive, but in a way that’s familiar to anyone with a touch screen device. These guides include a range of multimedia content such as maps, images and video that create a much more real experience. What’s more we’re using and referencing the latest technologies, including the use of drones for aerial video and photography, which is something we’re particularly passionate about.
Finally, we focus specifically on photographers and creative folk with a sense of adventure. We include specific hints, tips and equipment recommendations for each location to make sure photographers have the best research available to capture that amazing shot.

You’ll be updated via email about any updates to our PDF travel itineraries purchased from the Global Photo Guides website, and the email will contain a link to download the newer version for free.
Which devices work best to view your products?
Our travel itineraries and route guides are produced in PDF format, which is a common file format accessible on nearly all smaret phones, tablets and laptops. What’s more, it can also be printed if you prefer a physical copy. Apple devices can display PDFs natively without needing additional software. Android and other device users should check that your device can open PDF files.
What about data roaming? Do I need an internet connection?
We occasionally link to resources on the internet, such as websites to book tickets for a location, or external information you might find valuable. In such cases we colour code the links so you can easily see which ones lead to a website or service that needs an internet connection (red links require an internet connection, and blue links take you to another part of the book or guide).
What is iBooks (now known as Apple Books)?
In 2018 iBooks was rebranded Apple Books, but it’s features and functionality remain the same.
We publish our location guide eBooks, such as Photographing Lanzarote, in the Apple Books format because it provides a super easy way for our customers with Apple devices to download and view the eBooks. It also means that our customers can benefit from free updates via the Apple Books store.
If you have an Apple device and would like to know more about how to use Apple Books, check out this getting started guide.
If you have an Android device, don’t feel left out – our eBooks are available as apps in the Google Play Store.
