As an A Level Photography teacher I was seeking a resource that offers vocational insights for students. I have found it a really useful and insightful point of reference. The photography courses I lead -as is usual with A Level Photography - come very much from an art-based context. This book is not concerned with areas such as developing creativity, observational skills, or composing effective images. It is a highly accessible reference book that offers practical vocational insights and advice from aspects such as marketing to legal obligations. No doubt it will be particularly valuable to Commercial Photography Degree students, however the advice is not exclusive but straightforward - best emphasised within the 'have you got what it takes' section - and open to all considering setting up a photography business. The underlying message is positive and for any of my students that express an interest in commercial photography it will be useful to point them to this book to gain further insights into the wider considerations of being a successful professional photographer.
