Top customer reviews
If you are contemplating a career in photography this book is a fun read. If you are already a pro there is not much here other than the sections on social media. The authors are very well connected in the social media world and well known for that reason. They also give a very real perspective of what the challenges are and it points you in a direction that may allow you to do additional research in order to overcome them.
That said the book is veeeeery US centric. As an aspiring US photographer living overseas I can tell you that there are a lot of things here (example: copyrighting and some marketing stuff) that don't work or apply outside of the US so for that reason I took one star. I think it will serve well for the authors to mention this at the beginning of the book.
