His how-to book, Spirit of Place: The Art of Professional Travel Photography, was hailed by American Photographer magazine as "simply the best book about travel photography we've ever read." His coffeetable book "In Tuscany" with author Frances Mayes, spent a month on the NY Times bestseller list. Bob is a great workshop leader; enthusiastic, knowledgeable and sensitive to student needs.

From one of Bob's students:

"Bob Krist is an amazing photographer, but I think he is an even better instructor.  I learned more in a week than I usually do in a semester of photography courses."
