2.0 out of 5 stars Out of Date, 15 Mar. 2008
This review is from: Photos That Sell: The Art of Successful Freelance Photography (Paperback)
Whilst the content of this book relating to the title is still valid the areas of the book which are probably of most interest readers - internet based stock image libraries - is horribly out of date in this book; in fact they barely get a mention. The same problem applies to the coverage of digital photography in general. This book is in dire need of an update!

There are many more up to date books on Amazon covering this subject in fresher, applicable detail. Some are even released on an annual basis. Until this book is updated, you'll see a much better return on your money from looking elsewhere.

Any Suggestions, I have been searching high and low for a decent up to date book on the subject and the search goes on.....

Surely its about time someone in the know published a book solely devoted to selling digital images on the web, I'm sure that would get a lot of attention. Failing that it would be nice if these pro's reprint there out of date books with a good chapter or two on the latest digital phenomenon and the new ways of getting into this market.

Try Digital Stock Photography by Michael Heron. I am just half way through and will do a review. Good content - poor black and white images though.

I recommend "Microstock Photography" by Douglas Freer - even if you're not planning to use a Microstock agency.
Also take a look at the annually produced "The Freelance Photographer's Market Handbook".

Both are on Amazon UK.
