My Collection



This is my collection of coffee table books. I didn't intend to start collecting them, but I just kept finding photography books that I love. Most of them are from celebrity photographers like David Lachapelle and Mario Testino. I've got about 20 or so. They inspire me.

I just starting adding to my collection too. I thought it was about time I stopped admiring everyone else's pictures and started taking some of my own. So I picked up a book called "Professional Children's Portrait Photography" by Lou Jacobs Jr. It's very cool. There are tons of tips and advice from photographers about working with children and getting into the business.

Check out all the other bookworms over at Stacy's.

Great collection you have there. Nice pic, like the lighting.

You were up til 3 or was that a typo?! Yikes. Books are always a stresser at bedtime because I want to go to bed and they want more. I tell them that both girls need to sacrifice their Hanna Monatana 6:30 viewing for book time. Not working yet.

Nice stack of books. I do not see Annie Lebowitz which is such a cliche but fantastic for the eyes.

That is a really nice collection. One thing you can't go wrong when spending money on is a really great coffee table book! Nice shot!

Love your shot and your collection of books. It is great to see what other photographers are capturing to get inspiration. Good for you in getting a book to learn with, as well. :)

Coffee table books are wonderfully addicting! I love them too. The big glossy pages beg to be admired over and over again. Great collection!
