    Can anyone recommend a good book on marketing for photographers?
    I've been reading online for weeks now but I thought someone might know of a good book that I could pick up and read when I have spare time away from the internet.

    Thanks! Have you found it helpful? I might just order it, it's only $25.

    I have that book and it's VERY helpful. He doesn't talk so much about marketing per se, but how to effectively run a photography business.

    Thanks, I think I'll order a copy next payday. I've been putting as much time into learning how to run a business as I have been learning to use my camera so I'm sure I'll find it helpful too.

    Any good book on marketing would be a benefit. In fact, it might even be better than a book focused just on photography. I've spent 19 years doing marketing in 4 different markets and nothing changes the fundamentals just because the market / product / service is different.

    Browse the business section at Chapters and see which books resonate with you.

    $3 cheaper at Amazon.ca, buy a 2nd book at the same time and free shipping too.
