Books Written by Nick Stubbs
The following photography books and portfolios are all e-books which are downloadable upon purchase. I have read a few of these in my time and have always found one or two absolute nuggets of information. Nuggets that have helped enormously with my techniques and progression.
Even as a working professional, I never feel like, or tell anyone that I know everything there is to know.
The only way to push forward with your photography is to read and practice. Since I was 13 I have read and digested a lot of information and still do. Occasionally I find some excellent technique or piece of advice that moves my photography on just that bit more.
If any of the following books help in any way, they are worth their weight in gold. The more knowledge you accumulate and the more you become inspired, the better you will do!

Amateur or Professional Photographer?
Whichever type of photographer you are, you may at some point be asked to photograph a wedding or some other special occasion. Special occasions mean photographs, and photographs from special occasions need decent albums.
I was asked (and paid) last Christmas, to photograph a large family reunion in Spain. The family also asked me to put the best of the photographs in a decent keepsake album. It is always good to have a good supplier of quality albums at hand for those occasions.
It is also good to have a stock of albums already to show prospective clients or even to showcase your work. Wedding couples in particular, would like to see your most recent work. Try to portray this work in fine style as to inspire confidence in you!
You probably already have your favourite photography magazines, but we have sourced some for you anyway. Also, read, read and then read some more. No matter what you already know, you can always benefit from photography books. Bambi Cantrell in particular, is a stunning wedding photographer and her books on wedding photography are a must read.
Journals and Portfolios
Side-stepping the photography side for a moment. For a professional look for whatever you do, these journals and portfolios are designed to last, and impress. If you are looking to book a wedding, a portrait sitting or just about anything where you are face-to-face with your client or in a business environment, a smart, professional appearance is very important.
