Steve McCurry on Photo Composition

This short, fascinating video is an informative and inspirational three-minute course in image composition by legendary photographer Steve McCurry. Published by The Cooperative of Photography, it combines McCurry’s insights on the fundamentals of design with dozens of his spectacular images drenched in color. The lessons are valuable for photographers composing in the camera, designers creating layouts as well as editors selecting images for print.

Shot on expeditions for National Geographic and other projects across the globe, McCurry’s images are among the most highly recognized and well-respected of our time. And while Steve is a master at composition, his understanding of human nature is what truly sets him apart.

Editors note: Monadnock is proud to have presented Mr. McCurry’s work in the beautiful paper promotion Diversity: Steve McCurry on Caress and Dulcet several years ago. For an exclusive look at the Diversity promotion, contact your local Monadnock representative, or write to us at
