Pearsall is one of the best at what she does, and enjoys sharing her knowledge and experiences with others.
Buy this book, read it, and get out there and shoot!
Here are my complaints about this guide:
--very little background on dealing with editors (especially while in the field). That's to be understood, Pearsall was part of the Combat Camera unit and this wasn't an issue for her so the FG doesn't really address it well.
--not much on getting visas and press passes (which can be a huge issue for conflict zones and/or overseas work). Again, Pearsall was a member of the US Military and they handled that stuff.
But those are two big omissions from my perspective. Otherwise, this is a very complete, current, details, practical field guide for photojournalists. It is EXACTLY what it claims to be.
I have already purchased copies to send to friends and family members. This is a "must read" book for folks who are seriously interested in photography, the world around them and life itself. Stacy Pearsall's captured it all in her highly useful and completely entertaining and useful book.
She is a "rock star" in
I am glad she told the real deal on how to handle the bodily needs in the field. This is something the military always neglects to tell servicewomen. You are expected to figure it out on your own. Great job Stacy. You cut that learning curve down.
I will never be a photojournalist, but I found I could not put this down until I finished it. If you think of this book as a how to, you will miss the true meaning. There is more depth than just the technical aspect of photojournalism.
Thank you for a wonder story.
