As photographers, we have to learn and master a great number of techniques from shooting in manual to perfecting our post-processing skills. (Let’s not mention all the industry-specific lingo and their pronunciations… can someone say bokeh?) We are creatives and while we are busy creating we forget about the business side of things. It is for this reason (and because he had to learn the hard way) that Deryck van Steenderen wrote, Exposed – The Business of Photography.

Now you can stand a chance to win this absolutely essential book, which is at the top of our recommended reading list.
