    Buy something else

    This book is a mess. First off, it's chock full of typos, grammar errors, and just plain wrong information. For one horrifying example, he talks about the 'Shlemflug principal', which, apart from being awful grammar, doesn't even exist (it's actually the Scheimpflug principle). Second, he doesn't spend a whole lot of time talking about actually *taking* architectural photographs. There is quite a bit of information on picking gear, running your photo business, how wonderful the new digital gear is, how to make a marketing website, and how to use the various types of cameras (35mm, MF, and LF). There's even a chapter on darkroom techniques. And, of course, most of this information isn't directly related to the shooting of architectural images. The one saving grace of this book is the chapter 'A diary of the shoot', in which he documents the process of doing a full shoot for a client, and which I found quite interesting. Do yourself and your wallet a favor and buy something else. Grab a copy of Norman McGrath's 'Photographing Buildings Inside and Out', or the pair of Michael Harris's volumes 'Professional Architectural Photography' and 'Professional Interior Photography'.
