"Being a photographer of people is like being a comedian on stage with a live audience." First edition of British society photographer Tom Hustler’s reference guide to the medium. An enfant terrible of Swinging Sixties London, Hustler got his big break when he photographed the engagement of Antony Armstrong-Jones and Princess Margaret. He went on to document numerous weddings and completed numerous royalty commissions, including a portrait of Prince Charles and Princess Anne for National Savings stamps. This manual contains information on cameras and equipment, tips on becoming a professional, and advice on children, glamor, wedding, advertising, and theater photography. Copiously illustrated with black-and-white plates, many full-page. Unclipped dust jacket with moderate rubbing and edgewear, and price sticker to upper flap. Very good. Item #7274
