    Inspirational book

    ' I have always been inspired by great sports photographs and marveled at the brilliant sports photographers and their skill in capturing the perfect balance of athletic performance. Now through this book, Peter Skinner gives me the 'inside running' on how I can produce some sports photography of my own.'
