Book News Annotation:

Heron, a freelance photographer of three decades, offers details on the diverse paths available to aspiring career photographers. Jobs considered fall under one of stock categories: publication, consumer, service, digital, stock, or fine art photography, each of which is complemented by an interview with a practitioner. Also addressed are non-camera photography careers such as buying and dealing, representing, and writing or teaching. Advice mainly comprises job and equipment descriptions-- the author forgoes speculations on employment and salary outlook. The book concludes with advice on career building and self-marketing and a list of institutions teaching photography and professional organizations for photographers.
