    Lots of good information

    The book was well thought out, with the information chronologically layed out, from marketing, through booking and shooting the session, to output and design. I highlited quite a bit, but will definitely be rereading and referencing this one.

    An amazing book...

    I loved this book! I have looked at many books on how to photograph high school seniors and this book far exceeded my expectations! The Wacker's have done an amazing job in this book. There is so much information covered in this book I don't know where to begin. They cover promos that have worked best for them, their sales workflow and how they generate sales, the equipment list, posing indoors, posing outdoors, on location shooting and how to process the final images. My favorite part was how they built their outdoor studio with multiple shooting locations. The sample pictures in this book are stunning also! It has really motivated me that I too can produce stunning results with by following their principles. I highly recommend this book!
