A Five Star Resource
on 31 July 2004
This is an outstanding resource for anybody who is looking to use their photographic talents to make money. This book goes into great depth about what publishers would be looking for, presentation tips as well as some contact details. Thankfully this book specialises upon the UK side of the market, as opposed to providing a list of otherwise useless USA addresses.
There are in-depth tips about how different mediums can be explored as well as technical information with regards to what kind of film, filters and even lenses would be most appropriate for certain situations. It is a blessing that this book does not specialise upon Digital or 35mm photography, but rather focuses upon detailing upon how the image can be manipulated by the camera and not a computer. Additionally there are several comments upon certain legalities in photography, such as the use of models and especially children, both of which I was personally not fully aware of.
Overall this book is a stunning read for somebody who is looking to get into freelance photography, and in every respect there is no aspect that this book neglects to cover.
