Ah yes, summertime becomes a memory and school is back in session.
Not for all of us, though. Full time work may be more like it, but that doesn’t mean the learning stops.
Ever, it seems.
Annie Leibowitz is acknowledged as the world most famous photographer, although this past year, her name has been in the press not for her photography, instead for her business prowess.
No matter what you may think of her work or her current situation, she has a lot to teach, and snippets of it were laid out in this book, Annie Leibovitz at Work
â€œThe first thing I did with my very first camera was climb Mt. Fuji. Climbing Mt. Fuji is a lesson in determination and moderation. It would be fair to ask if I took the moderation part to heart. But it certainly was a lesson in respecting your camera. If I was going to live with this thing, I was going to have to think about what that meant. There were not going to be any pictures without it.”
What we love about this book is the fact that it let’s you peek behind the curtain and get the story behind the photographs: the situation, how they were made, and the process to get there.
So it is not strictly a photo book in the truest sense of the phrase, nor is it an instructional tome.
Sure, you will find out about the equipment she uses, but for us one of our favorite sections was Annie Leibowitz answers the 10 most asked questions.
Here is one that we always ask everyone we interview “What advice do you have for a young photographer just starting out”
