Description du produit
Revue de presse
"The students really appreciate the excellent print quality, all the great pictures and their layout and how the pictures relate to the words. And last but not least, it's affordable. They can't believe they are getting such a well done book for a "fair" price. Compared to other authors who are charging an arm and a leg for less substantial works, you are a diamond in the ruff."
-Steve Sweitzer, Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis and past President of the National Press Photographers Association
"Kobré's text got me off the ground. No kidding. Since then, I have bought every edition and handed the last copy off to somebody who could really use it. -Jim MacMillan, Philadelphia Daily News, Associated Press 2005 Pulitzer Team "Kobré has inspired young photojournalists for many years through his teaching and watershed textbook about photojournalism, Photojournalism: The Professionals' Approach. His plain spoken, factual approach to the heart and soul of photojournalism has made every photojournalist's career better and undoubtedly launched more than a few. -David Leeson, Dallas Morning News 2004 Pulitzer Prize for news, 2006 Dallas Morning News Photo Staff Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News "When the idea of being a photojournalist was a blissful daydream, I stumbled across Photojournalism: The Professionals' Approach in a San Francisco library. It was everything I was looking for. It answered every question I had and was a clear decisive tool to help me get on my way. -Anne Wells, Los Angeles Times, 1997 Pulitzer Prize while at the Santa Rosa Press Democrat "I still have my tattered copy from fifteen years ago. -Todd Heisler, New York Times, 2006 Pulitzer Prize for feature Photography while at the Rocky Mountain News FROM THE PREVIOUS EDITION: " I use this as the primary text for the basic photojournalism class. I also find us referring to it in the advanced classes, as well. Well organized, with good insight from people working in the field, and wonderful illustrations. One testimonial from my students--there are very few used copies of this book in our campus bookstore from year to year." -Dave Burman, Hawkeye Community College, Waterloo, Iowa "This is a comprehensive textbook brimming with excellent examples of photojournalism. This book is for any photojournalism student or working pro who wants insight inot how the best in the business go about turning out great photographs." -Jim McNay, Books Institute of Photography "...does an excellent job keeping up with the changing industry." -Greg Patterson, Stephen F.

Time to pull out the credit card.
I read all the reviews and they are accurate. This is a great book. It's given me much to consider as I head out to do my slide shows. There's good technical information on lenses, camera bodies, strobe, portraits etc., but I appreciate chapters 10, 15 and 16: covering the issue, ethics and the law.
I also bought the "Associated Press Guide to Photojournalism." It's a faster read than this book, but they make a good pair.
If you want to learn the artistry of photography, this book might not be for you. But if you want to make powerful photos, I'd invest in this book. It's a keeper.
This book has great insightful tips from professionals currently working in the business. It goes in depth in most conceivable areas a photojournalist would want to work; It covers everything from how to track down and cover breaking news stories to how to design an interesting feature. It covers the legal aspects of copywriting your photos, signing legal contracts including legal jargon and pitfalls to avoid, and avoiding trouble with legal officials. It also covers where to find work and how you will be expected to perform when you get a job. It reads like it is designed for a university 'introduction to journalism' course. I read it outside of any official student activities and found it easy to follow and very informative. I highly reccomend it to anyone interested in pursuing a career in photojournalism. Happy reading,
