    Thank you for including Linked Photographer. I’m honored.

    You have a good list of books I would recommend to anyone. John Harrington’s book is especially good for every photographer.


  • Thanks for the list!!

    Thanks for the comment, Rosh. The Linked Photographer is a great book- In my opinion, it’s the best manual out there for helping photographers navigate all the new social media outlets and establish themselves online.

    You’re welcome, Dane- Thanks for checking out the site. And thanks for writing a such great book and helping other photographers navigate their way towards success in this ever changing industry. I’ve really enjoyed working out of Fast Track Photographer and can say that its unique approach has definitely helped me realize some great new ideas, even though I’ve been at this for a decade and a half!

    Great list. Thanks for sharing it!
    I just purchased ‘The Fast Tracked Photographer Business Plan’ and am keen to start reading. Another good book is David DuChemin’s ‘Visionmongers: Making a life and a living in photography’.

  • Dan Bailey says:

    Thanks for your comment, Megan. Yes, VisionMongers is an excellent book as well. David DuChemin is both an extraordinary photographer and an inspiring, insightful writer. It’s well worth the money.

    I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

    Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

    You have done it again! Another triumph.

    Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

    Thank you, Dan.
