The book "Clandestine Photography: Basic and Advance Daytime and Nighttime Manual Surveillance Photography Techniques - For Military Special Operations Forces, Law Enforcement, Intelligence Agencies and Investigators" is the bible to the art and science of surreptitious photography. This can be a very complicated subject, but with this manual a lot of the trial and error is already done for you excelling your learning curve. This allows the surveillance operator to focus on the physical learning of the skill-set with limited experimentation. I have seen surveillance operators spend numerous hours employing tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP), as well as learning to use the related equipment incorrectly. The surveillance operator armed with this book and the proper user's manual to the specific equipment employed will save countless man-hours in training and operations, producing a quality end product. This book covers every subject one would need to know to successfully pull-off a photographic surveillance operation from pre-mission planning, equipment selection, to what TTPs to employ, as well as post mission maintenance and refit. Although this book focuses on basic and advanced still photography the majority of the TTPs can be employed for video surveillance operations as well. Additionally, as the cover states, this book is for police and special operations forces, this is not a marketing ploy to sell the book. The book does an excellent job specifically catering to these organizations and intertwines clandestine photography with current military TTPs. Overall, I cannot recommend this book more to police and military surveillance operators, but also believe that the civilian photographer may find relevant information also in this book. This book is well worth its cost so do not let it scare you away. If this book interests you check out "Surveillance Tradecraft:The Professional's Guide to Covert Surveillance Training" by Peter Jenkins.
(Hardcover, 7.5"x10.5", 675 pages, profusely illustrated)
The book provides a solid foundation to all who needs to carry out any kind of clandestine photography.
This book deals with everything from the conventional basic stuff up to more sophisticated, clandestine methods of photography.
The authors present ways to minimize equipment costs and presents methods to put together low cost optical systems that can match equipment that cost more than 10 times as much.
The manual is very understandable, very well-illustrated, and if you you are on a limited budget, buy this book and learn how to get the best bang for your buck.
