5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent advice. 18 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book gives great advice for the writer who also wishes to illustrate their articles with photographs. These days, photos are usually required by editors when submitting an article, so it makes sense to be able to supply them.
The book is written in Simon Whaley's usual clear and friendly style, and the price is very reasonable.

Format:Kindle Edition
When I started writing for a living I quickly learnt how much editors value good photographs. Within a year I'd got myself onto a course and invested in a decent camera. This book looks at different ways of using photography to enhance your writing. It starts at the very beginning, looking at opportunities for photographic fillers in magazines. Then it takes you through ideas for more aspirational photography to accompany your writing.

Now, having been on a photography course and spent three years taking photographs for publications, I admit this book didn't teach me a lot of new tricks, but if you're a writer who's new to photography, then this is a great little tool! It's bursting with inspirational tips. It's also much cheaper than a photography course! Importantly, it highlights the money to be made from photography in writing, gives you lots of ideas, covers some technical details, shooting angles, storage and legal issues.

A great little book with a bright cover inviting any writer to take a look and see how basic photographic skills can make a difference. From the digital world to marketing and legalities, it's is clearly laid out, wonderfully easy to understand and packed with advice that will benefit anyone.
Perfect to dip in and out, humour a bonus.
