Photos NOT OK to edit
Hey, so hopefully this post can go here. But I love reading and learning new things, so I was thinking it would be cool to post must read books about photography/business/marketing. Anything that helps you or your studio.
The following should not only be read, they should be kept very handy as reference materials.
