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.
