For Boutique Photographers
Publisher: Amherst Media

This is where the branding of your business is so important. Not only can it deliver regular clients, but can also inspire important word-of-mouth references. Emphasizing how important it is for a photography studio to have structure and direction to become and remain successful, Cooney walks the reader through many scenarios that have helped form her business. A strong social media presence, creative marketing & promotions and repeat customers are the key to standing apart from the competition, therefor remaining vital.

In Naked Babies, Nick Kelsh and Anna Quindlen collaborate to produce a unique view of babies—one that owes nothing to tradition, sentimentality, or the cult of the cute. Unlike traditional baby photographs, Nick Kelsh’s amazing black-and-white pictures focus on specific aspects of babies—the perfection of a hand, the swirls of a cowlick, the smoothness of skin on the neck—and all are honest, exquisite, and invitingly tactile. Anna Quindlen’s essays are as graceful, snappy, perceptive, and personal as anything she has ever written. They muse on what it is about babies that causes our hearts to crinkle and fold: "The meaning of life is in them." You’ll share some of the things that Quindlen has learned as a mother, such as: "From time to time, I would lie on the floor with my babies to see exactly what they were seeing when it looked as though they were just wasting time" and . . . "The next time you’re sitting in a meeting after three cups of coffee, badly needing to go to the bathroom but instead doodling dutifully, crossing your legs and watching the clock, remember that if you were a baby, you would have gone by now, and no one would be the wiser." Kelsh’s photographs and Quindlen’s text complement each other perfectly. Two masters of their craft have created an unusual meditation and wondrous book—a totally original gift for every parent or parent-to-be.

Shoot the Baby offers practical tips and simple tricks for taking great baby photos. More humorous than technical, the advice works with any camera – disposable, digital, mobile phone or Box Brownie! Shoot the Baby is perfect for parents keen to capture those precious early moments yet too busy to study photography at night school. Doting grandparents, godparents, uncles and aunts may also be tempted to ‘Shoot the Baby’ from time to time. Written for parents, not professionals, the guide is refreshingly easy to read and quite possibly the first photography book not to mention focal length. The book is split into three key sections; Top tips, composition ideas and 'spot the difference'. Appealing images of babies are used throughout the book to illustrate different points. With over 700 000 babies born in the UK each year and millions of baby photos taken each year, the market opportunity is huge. The UK baby market is worth over £630m and spending on non-necessity items is high. Shoot the Baby addresses a gap in the market – the other books in the sector are aimed more at the professional photographer than the new mum. The book will be supported by the website www.shootthebaby.co.uk “Photos of your baby are the most precious thing and this beautiful book is full of useful tips and creative ideas to make sure your pictures not only look professional but also really capture the gorgeousness of your baby” Editor, Mother and Baby Magazine.
