Library Journal
This fairly comprehensive book covers basically everything one needs to know about marketing one's photographs. The first half of the book features useful sections on storage of one's work, setting up a business plan, communicating with clients, promotion, copyright, and many other critically important considerations in establishing a successful commercial enterprise. The remainder of the book deals with photo submission, including developing and presenting a portfolio, selling work, and understanding the numerous markets for photography. A substantial part of commercial photography has to do with managing and presenting one's collections of photographs to potential clients, and this book succeeds admirably in advising on both counts. The book also includes sample business forms. Written in a clear, straightforward manner, this work will be welcomed by both advanced amateur and professional photographers. Highly recommended for all libraries, especially those supporting photography and business collections.Raymond Bial, Parkland Coll. Lib., Champaign, Ill.

It's disappointing to see respected publishers like the Writer's Market people producing a book for the sole purpose of collecting receipts. Under the guise of an in-depth discussion of the intricacies of professional photo submissions, this book is actually nothing more than pieces of the Photographer's Market book rehashed and illustrated to give the appearence of being sharply focused on the topic the title describes. The author, through some of the clumsiest writing I've seen in this type of book (which, admittedly, is not necessarily pulse pounding reading unless you're deeply interested), actually presents verbatim the material you'll find in the Photographer's Market. Do yourself a favor and ignore this book. There are vastly superior resources on the topic to be found elsewhere.
