Extremely helpful how-to guide that covers a wide variety of career paths in the world of photography. I loved the breadth of this book—focusing not just on wedding photography (which seems like the default job for a photographer) but also stock photography, photojournalism, and even fine art and pet photography. What I found most valuable were the personal anecdotes and advice in the last section of interviews. It was great to hear from their personal experience and what they wish they had known when they got started. Plus, hearing from someone who's been there, done that, and actually found success with photography is naturally inspiring. There was no stone left unturned. This is a perfect book to buy any near or newly graduated photography students or even someone who's interested in turning their "hobby" into a full-time business.
