This book condenses what was, for me, a tedious several months of research into a readable, practical and surprisingly counterintuitive plan to further one's career. Had I come across this information earlier I could have saved myself a lot of frustration, tedium and dead ends. This book contains a wealth of invaluable information on a usually opaque subject and renders everything in a clear, concise fashion..." (Jim Lipschutz - Jupiter, Florida)

The Reviews

The positive first: This book does give some food for thought and a useful mindset on how to market photography. The basic idea is to focus on the journey of the photographer, bringing customers along, rather than only showing images and price tags. For this, three stars.The negative is that this book, like so many creative business books, is really a very long sales pitch for the author's coaching services. Lots of filler and emotional stuff, going in circles, promises of telling me things soon, to keep me reading, which not really materializes. Also, half of the book is really basic email marketing knowledge.

This book is great! It gives you the why first, which I think you need to understand, then specific hows. I have learned so much and have lots of ideas to start implementing. I bought the actual book and underlined a ton and made all kinds of notes in the margins. Read the whole thing and plan on reading it again. Definitely a mist buy!

For years I've been struggling to put together my marketing system. This book could have saved me hundreds of dollars and hundreds of futile hours. I had been stumped on selling my fine art photography because it was so different to how I was accustomed to selling my other photographic services, like assignments and stock photos. This book is brilliant in every way. It is insightful, helpful, and has given me a whole new perspective. Merrick has covered every angle with plain language and has devised a step-by-step system with very easily implementable actions. In fact, what I've done is taken the chapter outline of this book and I am using it as the template for my new marketing plan.

I consumed this book in just a few hours over two sittings. I got it new and now it sits full of highlighter yellow, sticky notes, hand written notes and dog-eared pages.It doesn't seem that there's really all that much "new" information in there (or perhaps not so new to me as I've been researching the topic) but Nigel has a refined writing style that makes the information really CLICK!I'm going to initiate all of the programs/procedures he recommends and am looking forward to seeing how this "long game" plays out.If you're interested in selling your photography as "fine art" this is an excellent place to start! easy 5 stars.

I wish I had bought this earlier because it contains alot of information that I've had to teach myself over the past year. Although, I've gotten some good tips that will be trying. Worth the purchase if you are setting up an online shop.

Mr. Merrick's coaching approach to marketing fine art images is conversational and persuasive. Step by step, and with no gimmickry, he presents a convincing and cohesive argument for photographers to rethink how they likely go about trying to sell their art online, and why excellent images may not be enough. Without promising overnight success, the author shows what to do and how, and why it works. An enjoyable and useful read, with no fluff. Well worth the modest price. Good job!

Based on my first read-through, this looks like an excellent plan to accomplish exactly what the title promises. (I will be happy to update this review with more specifics in a year or so.)

I I am a complete novice to the fine art photography business, but Nigel's book gives me a sense of direction so at least I know how to get started. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to find information on how to start a fine art photography business. It's well-organized, and easy to read.
