About the Author
Johnie L. Cook (Retired) CPP (Certified Professional Photographer) With over 30 years' experience in wedding photography, shares his story of how a Wedding can flow from one scene to the next with a minimum of hassle. This is a good book for those that plan on entering the business and those that are struggling to shoot a wedding without looking foolish.
I was able to join local, state and national photography associations, was president of our local, served on the board of the state level and attended conventions, seminars and schools, all the time furthering my education. One of my highest honors was to test for, and earn the "Certified Professional Photographer" Degree from Professional Photographers of America. Not an easy task to accomplish. With the invention of the digital camera, it became pretty easy for anyone with a camera to call him or her self a "professional". But what I'm seeing being produced is a long way from what I know is "professional photography", I hope that this book will help those new to the field. Wedding Photographers Guide Using Flow Posing

What I think is a valid criticism is that there are too few images in the book. The title of the book is flow posing and the author explains the logistics of maneuvering people so that posing is done in a time efficient manner. The author uses mostly words to describe his suggested sequence of poses. This is where additional images should have been included in the book. Additional images with captions would make his written set of instructions for logistical maneuvering much easier to understand and made this book a good quick reference.
With a large font size and relatively few pages, this book feels like a long magazine article. If the author had included additional images (as I described above) then I would have given it a 5-star rating as it cuts wedding photography down to its essentials fairly successfully. IMO, about 25 - 50 additional images is all that is needed and I'm sure the author has many in his archives that he could easily have used.
The book is priced so that all beginners can afford this simple guide to wedding photography. It is short enough so that the photographer can refresh themselves just prior to a wedding assignment.
The guide covers literally all aspects of a wedding shoot, including tips to help pitch yourself and useful 'do nots' to assist the prospective photographer avoid losing a potential customer.
I found the guide insightful to learn to take wedding shots (including a nice summary of all of the shots you should take). This was also useful from the perspective of business advice, even if that was not was intended, as he goes into a fair bit of detail on golden rules of conducting one self in the field of photography which could put a dent in the career of any aspiring photographer.
Useful read. 5 stars.
