"A fabulous, well-written book that covers every aspect of music-business photography. Required reading for anyone who wants to photograph musicians and see his or her work published. Even experienced photographers will learn from it."

--Baron Wolman, Rolling Stone's first chief photographer

"Photographing musicians in concert is difficult. There's not only the problem of access, but the vagaries of lighting and the egos of the artists, managers, and PR people. Jon shows you how to tackle those problems and many more, demonstrating his authority with his wonderful photos."

--Jim Marshall (the Godfather)

"Technically, the book is exhaustive, providing how-to advice from the simplest pointers to the most darkroom-oriented. From directories of potential buyers for your images to chapters on buying camera equipment, this book is an imperative read for its target audience, and an unusual look at the music industry for the rest of us."

--James Sullivan, BAM
