Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
I found this book exceptionally useful. I was disappointed, however, that there were a few contacts not included in the book that I was hoping would have been listed. I realize it can't house every contact, but it would be nice to see a larger publication listing and have additional resources.
Overall, this is a great book and highly recommended to anyone wanting to develop a more professional relationship and image.
It contains model and property release forms, info on copyrights, pay rates, contracts, running your business (large or small), secrets to social media success, managing your clients, and so much more. It also has articles and interviews with a pro sports photographer, fine art photographer, and a newbie wedding photographer who's doing well. Each article and interview contains nuggets of helpful information.
There's also a section that is brimming with information about available markets: This ALONE is worth the price of the book!
Information on photo buyers' pay scales, openness to photographers (newbies, hard to break into, closed to unsolicited submissions, etc.). These ratings will save you a LOT of time and frustration.
The section "How to Start Selling Your Work" gives you a lot to consider and helps you narrow your field of interest.
BOTTOM LINE: This book is all that you need to find buyers for your photos. Now, if you don't already have them, get a GOOD tripod and QUALITY lenses (more important for tack-sharp shots than the body of your camera) and develop an eye for composition and lighting. Then go make some money!
