Amazon Review

Learn what it takes to shoot reportage—photojournalistic images—from developing an idea, to making travel plans, to gathering the requisite information about the subject/scene and locale, to packing the appropriate gear and nailing the technical aspects of the shoot. Success in photojournalism is predicated on having a firm understanding of the business. Conceiving of a suitable reportage concept and getting a technically sound image may seem a simple task for photographers well-versed in photographing other subjects, but the truth is, photojournalism requires a special skill-set and understanding of what it is that such jobs entail. In this book, you’ll learn what to shoot, how to shoot it, how and where to socialize and determine cultural basics that may impact how and what you can photograph, how to get your images onto editors’ desks and in front of the eyes of the wider world audience, and how to make sales.


Enzo Dal Verme is a seasoned Italian photographer that photographed around the world for major magazines.

This book started as a self-published pdf book targeted to photography students seeking advice. The book turned out to be a success, mainly among professional photographers—hence this expanded and enriched print edition.

Reviews to the first self-published book include:

“This book is a must read for all the photography enthusiasts”

“The book is simple and straight to the point.”

"This is one of the most complete walk books I’ve seen on how to shoot reportage. Very thorough in its content it details logistics, technique and information only a seasoned professional would know. Well worth a read and an eye opener no matter what your photographic interest. Much of the knowledge provided is something that can be applied to any specialty and might just change how you work through your next shoot."

"How to Shoot a Reportage has great advice for aspiring traveling photojournalists. Since this is an e-book, it is nice that links to more information is provided within the context of the content."

"It's an excellent eBook"

"It flows quickly from one topic to the next, addressing lesser-known tips to advance the process of creating reportage photography. Its direct and concise style divulges advice at a rapid pace while covering all aspects of building a reportage."

"What I like about this book is that it is so well structured and it aswers almost all questions I used to have."

"I found inside it many of my thoughts and problems that I am facing (and ways around them) during my trips... therefore I strongly recommend it!"

"I would recommend this book to anyone interested in producing a reportage."

“It covers an incredible amount in a rather modest page count whilst answering many questions along the way… From the development of an idea to post production, there’s practical advise throughout.”

“The information contained in this book could save you thousands of dollars. He zooms in on how to avoid problems you just didn't consider.”

"It's a great reference, with plenty of useful and practical information in it."

“All in all, this is an excellent book and most photographers should be able to find some inspiration from it regardless of you particular interests and level of experience.”

“A solid foundation on what really happens with this type of photography”

“I liken this reading experience to engaging in an actual conversation with him as if you were an individual considering the path of professional photojournalist”

“He talks about knowing your market, and preparing your trips and shoots with the end client in mind. The information he shares isn’t vague and generalist, but talks in detail about exactly how about he goes about making these analyses and how he approaches his trips and reportage stories.”
