Portrait Photographer’s Style Guide is a hardworking recipe book of inspiring portrait photography. The first section of the book explores professional portrait techniques across a wide variety of styles and genres that echo the full range of images in today’s magazines, advertising and modelling shots. From gritty urban looks to classic poses, readers are provided with all the ingredients they need to recreate these styles. A 3D diagram of the studio or outdoor equipment setup accompanies each image, and explanations describe precisely how the image was shot in terms of format, lens, exposure, aperture and lighting.

The second half of the book provides professional advice on handling commissions, setting fees, understanding copyright and planning shoots. It also includes practical shooting tips, an overview of essential equipment, and step-by-step tutorials.
