3.0 out of 5 stars Almost, but not quite..., 23 Jun 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Making Money from Photography: In Every Conceivable Way (Hardcover)
This was a very good idea for a book but it doesn't quite cut it. It's almost useful, but the information offered is very brief and you end up reading paragraphs again to see if you missed anything as you seem to read a lot of words without actually learning anything!

There are parts of the book that could do with some more specific information, for example the author mentions that some markets can earn you "a useful income" instead of actually quantifying it. There is also mention of stock photography websites being useful to make money from, however the author hasn't included an appendix of useful sites which would have been useful.

Overall, the book helps bring together different ideas, but after reading it you still need to do plenty of research to find out more. A list of useful addresses, contacts and recommended websites at the back of the book would have helped as would a more specific tone. It's almost as if the author wants to write a book sharing information so he can make money, but he doesn't want to give too much away in case he ends up with more competition in the photography market!
