This 400 page book has 124 pages that deal specifically with stock photography
issues under the heading of "The Business of Stock Photography."
ASMP has pulled together information from a number of industry leaders
including: Craig Aurness, David Barnes, James Cook, Jon Feingersh, Paul Henning,
Barbara Roberts, Richard Steedman, Vince Streano, and Susan Turnau. This book
is available through Alworth Press in New York at 212-777-8395 for $24.95 plus
The sub-headings such as: Getting Into Stock, What Makes a Good Stock Photo,
Subjects that Sell, Choosing a Stock Agency and the articles by the various
experts are not well indexed so it takes a little digging to get to the meat of
what this book has to offer stock photographers. Nevertheless, it is worth the
trouble and the price.
