I realize this book came out only a few years ago, but it seems like it was outdated even then. The photos look like they were taken in the 1980's or maybe the 90's. Digital photography is barely given a mention in this book. Obviously, the author was slow to make the transition to digital. The marketing information is well presented and there are some good ideas there.

Stunning photography, good small business advice. I don't think that the subjects of the photos are models, but Vayo definately makes them look that way and as such, probably makes more than one mother shed a tear of joy.

This book is informative and a quick read! If you're interested in attracting a new clientele for your photo business or just learning a few techniques that the pros use, this is THE book to get! Plus, Ellie's stunning pictures make it a wonderful coffee table book. Overall, I rate it a 10 out of 10 for it's category. Mrs. Vayo really got it right!
