Lighting Techniques for Portrait Photographers
Photographers often spend tens of thousands of dollars on the latest lights, light modifiers, and lighting gadgets. As Bill hurter shows in this book, however, they may be headed down a costly road to nowhere. Instead of complexity, he suggests, photographers should seek simplicity. This creates a look more "true" to portrait viewers and has come to be preferred over the more contrived looks that were popular in previous decades. Packed with incredible images from top photographers, this book is a critical resource for professional photographers (and aspiring professionals who want to create more natural portraits and get fewer headaches doing so.

Trevor and Faye Yerbury - Speakers’ Corner
We don’t believe there’s ever been a speaker
line-up quite like this before at any photo convention - anywhere.
The business was established in 1864. I was established a little after that but nevertheless I confess to have been a pro here for more than forty years now. I’ve had several one man exhibitions over the years and we’ve been fortunate enough to win numerous awards. In addition there have been many TV and radio appearances and I was lucky enough to be presented to The Queen - before I photographed her.
