I’m always looking to kick-start my creativity when it comes to planning a photo shoot. By that I mean that I’m regularly reading magazines and surfing the internet in search of photographic inspiration. So when I learned that iconic photography book publisher Aperture is planning to release a book specifically designed to give photographers assignments that challenge their creativity and deliver outright inspiration, I instantly knew it was for me. The Photographer’s Playbook is edited by Jason Fulford and Gregory Halpern, both photographers and savvy students of the medium, and it’s sure to offer motivation to the rest of us because it contains advice for photographers from photographers—some of the biggest names in the game, in fact, including Tina Barney, Philip-Lorca diCorcia and Alec Soth. For more information on the publication, check out the review at Juxtapoz via the link below. I’m thinking it’s going to be a must-have book, so I’ve pre-ordered mine via Amazon.com.
