Book Description

Photography as a profession has never been tougher. Photographers need to be ever more entrepreneurial to succeed. The Bigger Picture, written by Jeanne Griffiths, for many years the Picture Editor of Time-Life London, is not a 'how to take photos' book. Instead. it is a practical book packed with advice, contacts, leads and business ideas intended to help you find and create markets for your work.

With valuable advice from other leading UK picture editors and art directors, the book covers rates of pay, (and where to find recommended minimums), marketing, portfolios, fields of work and photography-related work. There are chapters on marketing, exhibiting, studios, producing prints and products to sell, finance, insurance, copyright, law and travel. There is a chapter on photographers' agents, with a list of 70 UK agents, lists of grants and bursaries, card manufacturers, over 40 press agencies and the picture desk contacts for all UK national newspapers. There are leads to advertising agencies, magazines and publishers, including a list of over 30 specialist agencies that produce magazines that are not sold in shops.

Whether it is how to get a press card, have an exhibition, sell to the press, approach picture editors, become a unit stills, performance. sports, fashion, garden or landscape photographer, this book is essential reading for photographers, with over 1000 contacts, leads and ideas,

While mainly aimed at UK photographers, particularly in the financial and legal sections, it is applicable to any photographer who wants to break into the UK market or wants to exploit their field of photography to the full.

There is also a chapter for prospective students, with advice on how to find UK degree and other courses, create a winning portfolios, write a great personal statement, and what to expect at interview. There is also inside knowledge on photography courses - what the prospectus won't tell you but which students really need to know.

This Kindle ebook can also be read on iPad, iPhone, PC, Mac, Blackberry, Androids and Windows Phone 7 with a free Kindle app.

5.0 out of 5 stars treasure trove 10 Nov. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
If you know how to take photographs and now have hundreds of them in your files, this book is a treasure trove of what to do with them, and of How to market them and yourself so you might actually earn some money from photography. It is brilliant in covering virtually every topic you might need to know about. Here in detail is the How and the Where: photographic agents, creating portfolios, marketing, newspaper desks, copyright, rates of pay, the law. It is ideal for students (there is a chapter on getting into college to study photography)for young photographers, for amateurs hoping to turn pro, and for pros who are finding the going tough and need to consider new markets. It will make a wonderful Christmas present and I shall be buying it for all the aspiring photographers that I know.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what the doctor ordered! 1 Dec. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
After teaching photography at the University of Arts for 25 years, this is just the book i wish i had had 25 years ago. Honest, succinct, transparent, concise! This is the answer to any young aspiring photographer hoping to get the low-down about what photography is all about. Splendid!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best UK book on the business of photography 12 July 2012
Format:Paperback
This book is an excellent distillation of Jeanne Griffiths' expertise in photography. It is a guide to the all-important business side of photography. It covers eveything from picture agencies, to copyright and contracts. If you don't make back the costs of the book many times from the fees you will earn following her advice, then there's something wrong with you ;-).

Highly recommended, particularly for UK readers. There are a number of excellent US-based photography business guides but this one focusses on the British angle. There is a lot of information that is applicable globally however.
