The impressive thing to me about Bruce Smith's book is that he doesn't leave anything out. He starts at the beginning with information about equipment and location needs straight thru to post production and marketing your images. This is by far the most complete guide to handling every aspect of a fashion shoot I have ever seen. And the beautiful photographs not only help to teach and explain but also to illustrate his wonderful work along the way. After reading and re-reading... because there is so much information in the book.... you feel that you have Bruce as your personal consultant helping to guide and encourage you along every step of the way. This really is a complete guide and one of those books that I will return to over and over.

If you are looking to bring life and emotion to your images, this book is for you. Many just take photos of pretty girls. Bruce teaches you tricks and secrets of world class fashion photographers. The results will be astonishing as they were for me. Now, my photos have more energy. You can feel the emotion that I have captured. THANKS BRUCE! If you are tired of taking the same type of photos and want to experience a life-changing revolution in your photography, read this book or attend one of his classes ([...]) and get ready to feel a renewed excitement.

As an introductory book, works perfectly, clear and basic tips, and good suggestions for beginners.
Good lighting examples and image treatment.

Bruce Smith covers a very broad range of information in this book. While this is supposed to be 'A Complete Guide to the Tools and Techniques of the Trade'; it ends up being little more than a quick overview. All the information is very shallow and nothing you could not learn from 15 minutes on Google. It has far to many images, mediocre images at that, and not near enough information. I would highly recommend spending your time and money elsewhere. However it is up to you.

Great book for inspiration, tips, and style ideas. I think for the price - it is a great book to have on the shelf of any passionate fashion oriented individual.

My expectations were different i think. It would want to see about more of a lighting techniques and photography techniques for fashion photography, but the book was kinda like, written to fill out the pages. I don't want to be rude but with my knowledge, i would have explain it better better :)
