This is THE GUIDE to get
I first learned about this guide while searching through Pinterest for inspirational maternity photos. After being redirected to the author's website, I soon realized that there was an actual ebook available. This guide is an excellent resource for photographers that are interested in maternity photography. It's interactive and the author has an amazing way of relaying his past experience in teaching his technique. It reads as if he is right in the room teaching you, which makes this easy reading :-) I can tell you that after searching for days on end, there is no other guide like this out there. Not only is the price point a steal, but there are over 200 pages of content. I have searched online and found other photographers that are charging hundreds of dollars for their books and most of them are in PDF format and contain about 30 pages worth of content. Who pays $400 for a book? I'm certainly not!
Not only is this book a great, go-to resource, but the author has been so helpful and responsive. You won't regret this purchase. Also, once you've purchased it, allow about 20 mins for the content to download onto your iPad :-)
