Format: Paperback
This is a collection culled from previously published articles in the ASMP Bulletin, by different authors, arranged thematically. The essays feel like self-contained, separate pieces, which they are, and do not coalesce into a unified treatment of this subject. There is no sustained, in-depth discussion of any topic, and although the articles are related and arranged in some thematic order, the resulting book is really little more than a reprint of past ASMP Bulletins (i.e., short, one to two page overviews of topics of interest to practicing photographers).

The ASMP Professional Business Practices in Photography, 7th addition is extremely thorough in its communication of what professional photographers should be doing. It is essential to know the inside and outside information on running a photography business in an ethical and practical way. This book contains information on best practices and how those practices benefit both the professional and the client. In the end it comes down to a positive relationship between the photographer and the client through their services. This book gives great practical advice on how to achieve such a relationship without compromising the profession with low-ball techniques. Sound business practices from qualified professionals in the field making a living and working hard to ethically provide services to clients in a positive and mutually effective way.

In 56 chapters and about 450 pages this book covers the gamut (no pun intended) of issues of what an aspiring or practicing professional photographer might face on the business side of their practice. Personally I would call it a "must read" along with the two other books mentioned below. While this book does not provide great depth in many areas, it does provide great breadth and quite useful depth. I would recommend "Best Business Practices for Photographers by John Harrington" and "The Professional Photographer's Legal Handbook by Nancy Wolff" as companions for this book to give you greater depth on many of the key areas covered in this book. While long in length, it is generally very quick reading. Highly recommended!

This book is required reading for a class called "Business of Photography." There are good sippets throughout for those unfamiliar with business, and photography business specifically. The text is somewhat disjointed in that there is no real theme that progresses throughout. Overall, it is useful.

After reading this book, I find it more geared for the experienced / seasoned photographer. Not to say or discourage beginners; it's just that it may be a bit overwhelming to a beginner.

I found it quite informative and detailed about most every area of the photography business.

Definitely a great book to keep on the shelf for future reference.

This is a great gift for a photographer in school or wanting to start a business. It is good to have for reference as well. Helps out with tips for contracts and forms. Covers copyright information and how different types of photography businesses are run. I started out using this book while working on my commercial photography degree and I reference back to it more than often enough. It is WELL worth every penny plus some!
