    Inspiring

    This is the first photography book I owned. I found the pictures to be very inspirational, the information and tips practical and useful, and the book to be a very good value for the money. I have recommended it to many people and have enjoyed it many times.

    Great advice on 'Capturing' Children in Photos

    I live on Cape Cod and was familiar with the author's work before finding this book. The topic is focused and offers more advice and examples for a successful photo shoot than technical information. I read many useful ideas that I'm looking forward to trying on the beaches when it thaws out here!
