More About the Author

My life's work is to help photographers to achieve their full potential in photography.

I call myself a photographer, writer, sharer, and broadcaster. I call myself a 'sharer' because I don't care too much for the terms 'teacher' or 'educator': what I like is to share my knowledge and experience of photography - of which I have much, across a good swathe of photographic activity. I love to share and I do that as much as I can through my writing, workshops and by offering online courses and one-on-one mentoring. Write to me at info@tomang.com for more information.

I've had 30 books published on photography and video (33 if you count the new e-books). The popular 'Digital Photographer's Handbook' has been translated into about 20 language and is now in its 5th edition. My "Digital Photography Masterclass" has proven popular with readers and reviewers: it won the Library Journal's 'Best How-to Book of 2008 and was chosen by Shutterbug as its 'Créme de la Créme' of Top Digital Imaging Books of 2008. We've just revised, up-dated and improved it. The 'Digital Photography step by step', is our best how-to book, packing an enormous of information into accessible form.

The latest book, 'Photography - the definitive visual history' is a wonderfully rich book, with over a thousand illustrations, uniquely it gives proper place to the photographic technology that has enabled photography to advance. It's a bargain at current prices - even without the discounts!

I won the 1988 Thomas Cook award for Best Illustrated Travel Book for my coverage of the Marco Polo Expedition. Goodness knows how; there were very strong contenders that year. I presented two ground-breaking six-part series 'A Digital Picture of Britain' and 'Britain in Pictures' for BBC. And an eight-part series for Channel News Asia Singapore was broadcast in August/September 2009 and was distributed on DVD.

I've worked as magazine editor, picture editor and was senior lecturer in photographic practice at the University of Westminster for 12 years. I led a Know How Fund project that reformed the journalism curriculum for a university in Kyrgyzstan, as well as photographing extensively in Central Asia. I was chair of the Arts Council England organization for Chinese Arts in Britain and am a founding member of the World Photography Academy, where I helped initiate and led the Student Focus program for its first two years.

My current interests include fine-art photography, writing fiction and poetry. I was born in Singapore and now live in New Zealand.

My Wife and I are amateur photographers and we spend a lot of time apart from each other do to my job in the Army. This book was great for us because it had a collection of good ideas for settings and props, along with an entry level photography 101 approach to the mechanics of taking pictures.

We used the book as an initial reference and as a starting point for our email based photo exchanges. The section on digital editing/correcting/styling was very useful. I would recommend that anyone even interested in buying this book should purchase a decent digital photo editing program to play around with while they explore the book.

If you already know your way around a darkroom then look for another more technical book to satiate you. However, if you have limited experience with cameras and a beautiful willing partner to practice with then I recommend this book for you.

We found this book to be one of those that had a foot in each camp, so to speak, giving some technical and some 'psychological' tips that apply to taking nude photo's of your partner. While the concept is good, the execution was lacking, and the book was a bit light in both areas.

Personally we would have preferred something a little more technical, perhaps even formulaic, showing how (settings, lighting diagrams, etc) particular shots were achieved.

The writing style was another thing we found odd. It had a rather stilted, almost academic feel to it, rather than a friendly, chatty, 'hey guys, you want to take dirty pictures of your wife, here's how..." feel to it, which is apparently where this book is aimed. Feel free to disagree.

Finally, the fact that the author says the entire book's photo's were shot the day the book was due at the printers speaks volumes. A book's photo's shot in a day or two ? They were average, not great, or even particularly good.

Clink, clink, 2c deposited.
