More About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
The second half of this book contains profiles of currently established wedding photographers who explain their business strategies and photographic styles. These profiles include examples of the photographers' works - collections of wedding photographs which are a joy to browse through and which lend ideas to the aspiring wedding photographer or established professional.
However, if you are considering starting a wedding business, or tuning up an existing wedding business, get a copy of this book if you can find one. In the first half of this book, Ann takes you on a no-nonsense walk through of the business end of photography, the paper pushing no-camera-required realities of the wedding photography business, and gives sound advice. This is the side of professional photography that photographers don't normally discuss - ranks right up there with scrubbing toilets. BUT - if as a pro shooter you don't follow sound business and marketing practices, you'll never realize your financial earning potential in a poor paying and highly competitive profession.
The second half of the book is about 30 pros who give their own views and twists on things. Each one takes a few pages to share their wisdom. There is much and varied wisdom to be picked up from their contributions as well, but don't expect any depth in this section. Even if albums are handled somewhat different now than they were when this book was written, we still sell albums.
I picked up a used hardback copy (no paper cover slip, fair condition) for under $5.00. That price tag is taken into consideration in my 5 star rating. I highly recommend getting this book if you can find it used and at a good price.Read more ›
