Rick Sammon is people person who loves the art of making — rather than simply taking — people pictures. In Face to Face, he makes learning people photography a quick and enjoyable experience.

Face to Face offers hundreds of tips you can you for studio shoots and "environmental" people pictures, including:
The largest section of the book, "Photo Philosophies", lays out several principles for making people pictures. Rick stresses that the camera looks both ways — in other words, the attitude and energy you bring to a shoot will be reflected in a subject's face. If you're enthusiastic, you'll capture a picture that portrays enthusiasm. If you're impatient or distracted, that will be reflected as well.
Getting subjects to accept him in a matter of seconds is his prime goal as a people photographer — after that, he says, taking pictures is much easier. Even if you're not a world traveler, Rick's tips and techniques will have you taking top-notch people pictures wherever you are.
