Model photography may seem like a glamorous job, but it’s definitely filled with an array of road bumps that can trip up even the most seasoned pro or savvy businessperson. If you’ve ever wished you had a mentor to take along for the ride—someone who can help you navigate the pitfalls and rise to new artistic and financial heights—you’ve found your hero in Ric Young. Ric’s one-size-fits-all book offers something for everyone. Broken into eight sections—(1) models, (2) doing more with your camera, (3) Lighting, (4) Ideas, Themes, and Assignments, (5) Marketing and PR, (6) Art Tips, (7) Miscellaneous Tips, and (8) User-Submitted Ideas, no topic is untouched. The book is organized with ease-of-use in mind; there is no real start or finish. You can start right at page one and progress in a linear matter, flip to any page, or focus only on the topics that appeal to you most!
