A book for all working professionals...
on 12 July 2010
If you expect this book to make you a more accomplished photographer, it will but not in the way you expect. This book isn't a photography 101 or a by numbers book, instead David duChemin walks you through the reality of what it takes to become a successful photographer. This, heavens forbid, also means the reality that forging a career out of taking photographs my also not work.
I like how duChemin writes, I resonate with his thoughts about success, failure and being honest with oneself and completely recommend this photography book not just as a photography book, but a book that requires you to think for yourself. Many of the ideas in this book aren't photography related but are completely transferable across every type of vocation or industry.
For me, this has become a must have book to have in your library. I also know that this will be a book a revisit time and again and my suggestion is simply this...
this is a whole lot of book for not a lot of cost. If you buy it and don't like it simply sell it on or pass it on.
