Lonely Planet Photography Guides
This book, published for the 40th anniversary of the 'Insight Guides' series, can be read online (in part) using the 'look inside' feature at amazon.
The book is pretty inspirational in it's layout and writing as well as in the chosen images. It's also practical, whether you're using a DSLR or a point-and-shoot camera.
Photographer David Noton reveals his methods for 'capturing the essence of a location', from mountain top to sea level, and from the mayhem of Asian markets to the peace of paradise islands. His entertaining and informative text and captions give an invaluable insight into how he thinks creatively

Aimed at young, aspiring professional travel photographers, pros seeking a second career or anyone wishing to capture places and peoples around the world - covering everything from who might hire you, to trip logistics, gear, techniques on the road, and more.
By an award-winning National Geographic photographer, Bob Krist, this book is more comprehensive than some other digital photography books, but the explanations are nevertheless clear and easy to follow.
On the practical side, Krist explains how to select appropriate equipment, gives detail about the technological aspects of shooting digitally on location and shares his tips for saving, backing up and sending images as you travel.
Travel Photography: Documenting The World's People And Places also has an aesthetic motivation - to inspire travellers to think; to consider how to create meaningful portraits of the places they are visiting. Instead of holiday snaps travellers will begin to refelect the geography, people and culture in their photography
Also by Bob Krist: Spirit of Place: The Art of the Traveling Photographer (Amphoto Books)
Encouragingly, this book opens with the statement: "The digital camera you own right now is probably the perfect tool to capture memories of your trip."
Busch explains how, if you learn how to watch for the right opportunity, compose your image and make the available light work for you, it is possible to capture the soul of a place - whether you're recording its people, its landmarks or fellow travellers in the scene. He shows how to be ready for anything and gives expert tips on tricky subjects such as wildlife or museum exhibits.
Practical tips include how to edit your photos and post them on the web during your trip.
