If you are like me, all of 27 years old, and have determined that your career path is in desperate need or re-paving, then this book is a very good start. I purchased this book through a gift card and have not put it down since. In fact, I only stopped reading it (on page 54) long enough to write this review. BUY IT! Vik Orenstein doesn¿t cloud over fact with her desire to prove how great the business is. You will see and hear both the good and the bad, about the Photography industry, and you will realize that being a photographer isn¿t always just about getting the perfect shot.

I am returning to the market after several years in the motion picture industry and was looking for a refresher on the business end of photography. Vik Orenstein has provided a wonderful primer for both beginner and professional alike, and I unreservedly recommend this book to anyone who is serious about pursuing a career in photography. She thoroughly covers necesary subjects such as choosing CPAs and lawyers, networking, and the various photographic markets available for pursuit. She does all of this in a winsome way, relating both her successes and failures as she developed and grew her own studios. If you are considering entering the field of photography as a professional, seriously consider purchasing this book. You will be making a very wise investment!
