Comments | [03/26/07] I decided to pick this one up for vacation reading and so far I am enjoying it! Glad there is a "Educate Yourself" section on SS! I personally feel that it is an insightful read and is teaching me a couple of things I wish the Journalism Dept. could have given me first hand.

Comments | [12/30/02] I just picked this book up at a Barnes and Noble. I purused it and then bought it. It is not only a great book for young photographers beginning their careers, but an insightful look at professional photojournalism with plenty of tips that even old pros can use. The book is also inspirational for those of us who continually strive to do a better job.

Comments | [12/26/02] I borrowed this book from the Managing Editor of The Chronicle last year and he had to track me down before I gave it back to him. It is a great book for the beginning photographer. I would suggest it to anybody interested in photojournalism.

Comments | [11/24/02] I just read my copy the other day for about the 398,873 time. A great book to keep you fresh and inspired. With Ohio State heading to Tempe, AZ I know that will be carrying on ALL essential gear when I leave to cover the game after reading the story about David Longstreath's coverage of a plane crash that occured as he was waiting for his flight.
