    Great Choice for Sports Photographers

    I gave this book to my husband after we bought another sports book with the same title for Christmas for our studio. We also saw this book at the bookstore and we found it very interesting and, since my husband is shoots quite a bit of sports photogrpahy professionally, thought it would be a great addition to our photography library. So now we have two books on sports photography, and he's read both of them basically cover-to-cover -- and I have too! (although I primarily shoot portraits and commercial, and only some sports) He thinks they are both excellent and great companion books -- with these two books, you have essentially all you need to shoot nearly any type of sport effectively and successfully. We totallly disagree with some of the reveiwers, such as the one saying the book lacks in every possible way. This just isn't true -- if you're doing this at all seriously, this book has excellent information and obviously comes from a wealth of experience. We also think that understanding the personal experience of photographers who have 'made it' is very important -- especially as many of us go through the shift to digital. This book helped with that. We rcommend it!
