Brian HortonNoted AP photographer and photo editor, Brian Horton takes you beyond the basics of lenses and exposure times to offer a rare, insiders perspective on the art and craft of photojournalism.

Using more than 100 photographs from the AP archives to illustrate his points, Horton analyzes what constitutes great news photos of every type, including portraits, tableaus, sports shots, battlefield scenes, and more. He offers unique insights into composition and style, along with invaluable advice on how to develop a style of your own.
