More About the Author

Steve Sint Bio:

Steve Sint has spent a great deal of his life walking down aisles backwards. Over a 40 year career, he has photographed over 4000 weddings, taken over 2 million photographs, and captured over 1 million portraits for his own studio and others in the New York metropolitan area. As a commercial photographer he has photographed tens of thousands executives and still life subjects. His client list includes, or has included, the American Broadcasting Company, Time Inc., Hearst Publications, Yves St. Laurent, AT&T, NCR, National Semiconductor, Miller Freeman Publishing, Sony, MacGroupUS, and Hachette-Filipacchi Magazines. His photographs have appeared on the covers of over 60 national magazines including LIFE, Omni, Stereo Review, and Modern Photography. As a photographer, columnist, and contributor his words and photographs have also appeared in Studio Photography, Lens Magazine, Modern Photography, Popular Photography, View Camera Magazine, Railroad Model Craftsman, and most recently Shutterbug.

He has also authored 7 books on photography. In his most recently published book, Digital Wedding Photography: Art, Business, and Style, he shares his experience with his readers in "a breezy, humorous style that easily converts complex themes into understandable concepts." Typing "Steve Sint" into the Google search box consistently results in over two million hits. At this point in his career he limits his assignments to 50 per year for a select New York clientele, photographs and writes about things he enjoys, and still finds time to teach professional photography, produce tutorial videos (setshoptutorials.com), and conduct workshops on wedding and portrait photography (Maine Media Workshops: mainemedia.edu/workshops/photography/digital-wedding-photographer). His most recently finished book, Digital Still Life Photography: Art, Business, and Style, is scheduled for release in January of 2013.

What the readers of Steve Sint's portrait book have to say:

"...for everything up until you take the card out of the camera, this book will provide you with the practical information you need for portraits with which your subjects will be happy (and that might even make you a few bucks!)" C.O.

"If you get a book on portraits... GET THIS ONE! You will NOT regret it! I may get a second copy to keep in my roll-around case...it is that good! Kudos to the author for a job well done!" T.M.

"I read nearly every book our library had on digital photography when I first got into taking pictures. This is the first book I loved enough that I had to have my own copy." J.L.

"Even though I have about 70 books on various aspects of photography, when I saw this book I ordered it immediately. The reason is that it contains material that I have not seen elsewhere. Lots of small details that other authors gloss over." B.L.


What the readers of Steve Sint's most recent wedding photography book have to say:

"I'm a big fan of books that are no-nonsense, no fluff, no BS... just the useful facts. This is one of those books." R.S.

"He shares experience in easy to read and understand writing and I find it refreshing that he isn't so dogmatic about the equipment (i.e. must have 24-70mm f/2.8, 70-200mm f/2.8 and 85mm f/1.4 lenses, FF sensor and so on)." A.

"This book really does a good job of helping to understand the business side of the photography business." J.

"I must say this a very good book for any skill level of a wedding photographer." J.S.


What Steve Sint's students have to say:

"This workshop was seriously amazing. I'm daunted and inspired by the craft. You pushed the frontier way back for me, Thank you." M.B.

"Steve - you're incredible! My head is still spinning from everything you've shared with us. You are very motivating and your teaching style is fun and enjoyable - there is never a dull moment!" B.C.

"Steve - you are amazing!!! You have really helped me with a better understanding of the technical aspects of camera use, more efficient use of time with subjects, and enlightened me with tools for better lighting practices." K.M.

"I have never learned so much on any one topic in one week at any point in my life. It is truly "immersion" in a field I love, led by a world-class instructor, what an amazing opportunity!" R.C.

I'm surprised that there are only two reviews of this book. This book gives plenty of practical information and advice about both the business and the artistry of wedding photography.

He shares experience in easy to read and understand writing and I find it refreshing that he isn't so dogmatic about the equipment (i.e. must have 24-70mm f/2.8, 70-200mm f/2.8 and 85mm f/1.4 lenses, FF sensor and so on). He explains many things not only in technical terms but also why it makes sense from business standpoint and how to be efficient and to maximized your time and profits.

I do think people who are drawn to this field of work have high artistic sensibilities but sometimes lag behind in business acumen necessary to achieve commercial success. He addresses this issue from get go and makes no bones about what type of commitment is needed to succeed in the business.

I enjoyed his take on what his "wedding repertoire" is as well as the chapter on postures and poses. An excellent read for any budding wedding photographer.

I'm a big fan of book that are no-nonsense, no fluff, no BS... just the useful facts. This is one of those books. The shot list has great ideas. The posing guide, and even the equipment recommendations are just what you need to know. If you are a photographer that is THINKING about jumping into the wedding business, or if you are already doing weddings, but want some fresh ideas, this is a good book to have. I'm shooting a wedding next week, and I'll be reviewing this book again a few days before.

Some of the other useful information is the business end of it. I'm a photographer, not a business guy... but this helped me feel a lot better about how to do marketing, and the business of wedding photography.

Whether you agree 100% or not with all of Steve's personal preferences, he carefully lays out the knowledge you'll need to be a successful wedding photographer. He has shot thousands of weddings and can probably do them in his sleep. His experience comes through in the text compared with certain other wedding photographer books where the author only started shooting weddings a few years ago. Steve has seen the field from every angle. His text (and excellent accompanying imagery) gives you both the breadth and depth of the field. Definitely one of the better (best?) books you can buy on this topic (and there are worse!). If you're deciding between books on this topic then this is definitely a safe one to choose.
