Back Cover Text

The photography social media is abuzz these days with a new myth—that of the “Rockstar” photographer. A fledgling shooter can easily get the impression that the ticket to success is to become one of these fashionable icons—heavy on style, light on skill—who seem to spend more time in front of the camera than behind it. But the Rockstar myth is hurting a profession that already faces daunting challenges.

The inconvenient truth is that it’s harder than ever to forge success as a professional event photographer. That’s why it’s critical to learn the real skills and secrets that will help you succeed day to day. Not the motivational, “Buy a BMW and believe in yourself” stuff, but the hands-on, practical principles that generate business in the real world.

The Rockstar myth is not unique to photography. In the Internet-driven world we live in, it’s hard to thrive in any field. Economies are tough and global competition is ruthless. It is tempting to look for easy, sexy shortcuts to success. Because of that, a huge cottage industry has erupted, filling freelancers and small businesspeople with hopes that if they only take this course or that seminar, they, too, can enjoy six- or seven-figure lifestyles. Most of the people offering the seminars are not real successes themselves.

This book is the antidote to that puffery. Interestingly, it is written by one of the few actual “rockstars” of the photography business, Gary Fong. He earned millions in wedding photography before retiring at 42. But he didn’t do it by reciting affirmations, buying a BMW, or changing his wardrobe every six months and blogging about it. He did it by applying the valuable principles and trade secrets he shares in this book.

So You Want to Be a Rockstar Photographer is for new professionals, passionate hobbyists, “mom-tographers,” and anyone interested in learning more about how to thrive in the real world of event photography. What you may discover, if you read this book, is that when you stop trying to be a rockstar, and start focusing on the process of being a thoughtful, client-centered pro, you just might become an outstanding success.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A practical look at being a wedding photographer today 24. April 2014
Von Michael D. Davis - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
In stark contrast to the glitz and glitter found in many of the current "how to" books on the subject of being a professional wedding photographer, Gary Fong provides an honest and practical assessment of today's state of the industry and how and why it finds itself in such a paradigm shift.

Considered to be one of the best examples of a successful career in the professional wedding photography trade, Gary doesn't soft peddle his contempt for the current "Rock Star Photographer" phenomenon. Like a fast moving virus this social media fed plague has infected throngs of newly initiated photographers who hang on every word and tweet of proselytizing photo-evangelists, who promise wealth and fame if " you just believe in yourself" while barely mentioning the importance of a solid educational foundation in the craft and business of professional photography.

This book is full of solid advice for anyone currently engaged in or contemplating becoming a professional wedding photographer. If there is one book to be recommended to the initiated and uninitiated alike, in my opinion, this is it.

Do yourself and the craft of professional wedding photography a favor. Buy it, read it, share it's message. Your true professional peers and your clients will thank you.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Biased book with great insight. Yes I know that's paradoxical but.... 15. Februar 2017

Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The fundamental problem of his book is that he is a rockstar photographer that claims to have the answers. Yet he has a thing against rock star photographers that think they have the answers. That being said if you can read past his biases, there's a lot to gain from the experience of reading this book. I definitely like his approach and wish I read this two to three years ago when I first started. I will be implementing his strategy of pricing and selling as im where he was when he first started
5.0 von 5 Sternen Rockstar status can be one tough road, who knew? 29. Januar 2014
Von Tom Vincent - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I first discovered Gary Fong through a few YouTube tutorials talking about various photographic topics that I found interesting. My personal experience is somewhere between hobbyist and Prosumer (depending upon the subject). I find being Professional means someone actually wants to pay you to use your photographic skills and that's harder than you think. So, after watching a few videos, I quickly realized that Gary knew a thing or two about Photography and captured my never ending interest. So once I saw this book, I was intrigued with what Gary had to say. I found myself reading the book in a few evenings and didn't realize the preparation, customer strategies, and thought that Gary used to be successful in this career field. I really didn't have any idea about the legal pitfalls and issues that can arise if you don't prepare and treat your customer fairly. I found this book simple and straight to the point covering many important aspects of the business. A very good read that inspiring photographers should read before they want to take that next step.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Priceless 21. Oktober 2012

5 stars: The best $20.00 I ever spent on photography related product. Title is a bit misleading but it becomes immediately apparent as the chapters unfold. Reads easily(two sittings). Though I'm technically proficient ;Gary's business advice cut years from my (business)learning curve.I've got 40years of lifetime ("semi-pro")experience behind a camera; But that didn't make me a Pro or a businessman.

Just bought a DSLR? "Mastered" "program" mode? Think you can just call yourself a "pro" because your DSLR is black? Jumping into business; you have no idea what you don't know about the potential liabilities/potential litigation and obligations of the business side.In an effort to raise the (rapidly crashing) bar for wedding photography: real pro Gary Fong cue's you in to the realities.IMHO well worth the asking price.

Just contains business philosophy and experiences(and a few real life horror stories for illustration). No technical photography information. You should completely understand your equipment and photography basics anyway if you are reading a photography business book like this.
4.0 von 5 Sternen So much for the rockstar myth! 22. Juni 2013
Von Laurie Bunker - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Gary Fong does a great job exploding the myth of the "rockstar photographer". This book is full of good information on why NOT to listen to the latest stars in the photography world who spend more time on social media than they do on their craft, and why it's still more important to perfect your skills than to develop a quick following.
I enjoyed the content of the book, and Gary's conversational way of writing. It's an honest and refreshing take on what's happening in the world of professional photography.
What I didn't enjoy was the poor editing...there are lots of missing words, and pieces of words, and the book itself has that kind of cheap, self-published quality that I didn't expect from the price.
I would have given it five starts for the content, but the editing issues dropped it down a notch.
