She is right...Harry Page has a passion for his work. His enthusiasm shows with each assignment whether it's the glamour of a Royal trip in the Caribbean or door-stepping a very ordinary person on a cold wet day. This book gives a welcoming insight into how a picture makes it from an idea to the front page. You may remember seeing many of the pictures Harry talks about in his book and now we find out the trials and tribulations he goes through to get them there.
An excellent read, couldn't put it down , highly recommended ....and please do a second book!
My review lost a start because I know the pictures that Harry mentions and I was reading the book with those images in my mind. Had I not known them, I would have enjoyed it a little less
If any publisher wants to pick this up and do a printed edition they should negotiate for the rights and add some of the pictures that he describes because they are classics of the genre and would move this from four to five stars.
The stories this man has to tell are amazing. Absolutely fantastic to see things from the other side of the lens; the subterfuge that's involved and the interesting tales he tells about the famous.
You won't be able to put it down. And if you can persuade Harry into your event to give a presentation on his photos, don't miss the chance. I've seen him in action. Fascinating!!!!
