Like Having a Conversation with Someone you Admire, Respect and Trust.
on August 3, 2013
I can’t recommend this book enough… for the past couple years I’ve been reading books, watching tutorials, buying magazines, pretty much studying like a college kid. Absorbing information, not for a test, but for life, or should I say, what I want my life to be... the Life of A Photographer.
I've studied Exposure, from Bryan Peterson, Light from Pros like Joe McNally, Vision from David Duchemin, and Honestly, I've learned invaluable lessons from them all, but Zack’s book… it’s something altogether different. It literally felt like he was answering my questions, like I was having a conversation with someone I admire, respect, and trust. Where as most people in that position might talk down to you, Zack treats you like an equal, like a friend. His answers are sincere, in depth, and eye opening. Questions I wondered about, he answered. Questions I didn't even think to ask, he answered. I’m a new fan, no doubt. He’s an amazing Photographer, and judging from his you tube videos and this book, he seems to be a genuinely caring and encouraging person… Don’t get me wrong though, He is completely Honest, Brutally Honest, but that’s exactly what you want when you’re learning. Life is Hard, but it is Equally rewarding.
I rarely write reviews, I've read enough bad movie reviews to know I don’t trust them, lol, but when I search for books on Amazon, I always find myself skimming the reviews (that’s how I found this book!), and decided, I might as well add my voice to the choir, maybe it’ll help someone else. So here it is… In my humble opinion, this book is definitely worth purchasing, it helped, it reassured me that the doubts, fears and questions I had are normal... it made me refocus, and honestly, it Inspired me.
Read it, You will not regret it.
