There are only three ways to enhance your life.
THE PEOPLE WE MEET: which was the blog post this past Monday.
THE PLACES WE GO: Tuesday's post
THE BOOKS (and blogs) WE READ!
Reading is one of the best ways to enhance our life in any area including photography. We are all reading blogs and eBooks and traditional books to enhance our life in some way. Today I want to share a few books that will help you to not only become a better photographer but to make more money with your business.
My top four suggested books are:
1) How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie - It's not a photography book but it will help you grow in your business more than any photography book I've ever read.
2) Selling the Invisible by Harry Beckwith
3) The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
4) Successful: How I Turned My Dreams Into Reality by Matthew Jordan Smith
I also want to make you aware of two brand new books on photography. One by my friend Me Ra Koh, Your Baby in Pictures: The New Parents Guide to Photographing Your Baby's First Year and the second by my brother, Brian Smith. Yes, I have a brother and he is also a photographer and we even shoot with the same camera, the Sony A900. Brian book is a beautiful collection of photographs celebrating and supporting the arts.

Always Dream Big, and read a good book!
