This book covers the basics of the legal and business aspects of being a photographer. Duboff wastes no words. The book is thoughtful, concise, well organized and easy to read. The court cases he cites are interesting and thought provoking as well as useful information. This book is an invaluable reference for setting up a professional photography business.

Format: Paperback
The Law (in Plain English) for Photographers comes from two attorneys who provide insights on digital imaging and the Internet. In an era where digital images can be easily captured and altered, discussions of photographer rights and avoiding legal problems become even more important. Details on censorship, obscenity, releases, online stock photos and more make this a key survey.

Format: Paperback
I have a small internet business and found a couple of chapters in this book to be helpful, but found many parts of it to be too general. The author genuinely offers some good advice, the problem is, that is just too little. There are so many types of businesses out there, and I feel like this is just the bare bones of what it could be. To me, it would be better if this book was 2 times longer. For a skim over of basic business law, I would give this a go, but for a more in depth picture of what you need to know, I would go to something that has a little more info.

Please be aware that if you order the Kindle version of this book, you'll get a similar book aimed at galleries and not for photographers.

It would be nice if a Kindle version of this book were actually available.

It does have helpful information, but everything that you needed to know that the book contains, could have been summed up on about five pages. The rest is common sense. And other part of the book is just someone rambling. Each state is different so I recommend if you're really concerned with something you're wanting to do, ask a lawyer. Wait to think it said that in the book somewhere, well pretty much. It does have some necessary contract examples in the back of the book. But you can also find them online. Not a bad book but not the best. I will keep mine on the shelf as a quick reference.
