Reviewed in the United States on June 16, Nigel's way of looking at the art of glamour photography is very easy to follow and his sense of humor made me chuckle a few times.
His tips and stories came off well and even instilled some inspiration. I had to take a star away for the lack of a proof-reader.. Im happy I got it! Top critical review. Reviewed in the United States on May 23, Like many potential readers of this book I'd never heard of Nigel Holmes. A photographer writing about photography should always include enough samples of his or her work to allow their readers to judge the quality of their advice.
One of the tip-offs to his knowledge of his subject is that any photographer who has done much work with nude models does discover that it no longer turns him on. He is so busy concentrating on the details of his nude or erotic photography that he doesn't have time to play voyeur. Like most types of photography, it takes constant and careful attention to the task at hand to achieve the desired photographs. There isn't time to act like a dirty old man or even younger pervert.
The photographer is simply too busy trying to get his model to relax and direct her expressions and body language to bring out the pre-visualized photograph. He also has to pay attention to the minor details in the entire photograph's composition or he may spend untold hours trying to correct the image through PhotoShop. However, anyone who has studied photography in art school learns quickly that people who are the most articulate about the many meanings of their images are often only defending poorly done and lousy photos.
With such photographers it's almost a fact that the less successful the photograph, the better the verbal arguments of denial. Too many people, critics and even museum curators, can talk a great picture but can't really produce or sometimes even recognize them. While this book did include a cover photograph which wasn't too bad "a snap" as the author calls his work, and some postage stamp-sized pictures on the back cover of the book, they are too small to really tell how good they are. For some reason, instead of photographs the book is illustrated with black and white cartoons that are intended to be amusing.
Too bad. They reminded me of the movie "Roger Rabbit. And the book is printed on high quality paper that would have allowed good photo reproduction. The book is also written in Australian and reminds the reader of "Crocodile Dundee" talking, which isn't all that bad, mate, for conveying the author's "down under" humor. That's only an observation about the book and not a criticism of its readability or understandability.
The book also cries out for a photograph of the author at work. Is he simply so handsome and good looking that would-be models find it impossible to turn down his requests for nude photos? What does he look like? Without some sample photographs the reader has to wonder if they are learning from a real expert on the subject or just reading a bunch of Crock from some bloke on the other side of the world. This reader is going to see if I can locate any of his pictures on the Internet.
Then I'll have a much better idea of how good the "how to" advice in this book really is. Maybe that rule should be forever inscribed on a stone tablet in the great marble photography temples on Mt. Olympus, Mt. Nikon, Mt. Canon, etc.?

After doing my fair share of glamour photography myself, I can relate to some of the stories in this book, while others I find a bit on the far side. This doesn't mean that the stories in this book aren't true, it's just that everyone can and will have different experiences. The book is a good light read if you are curious as to what the title of the book implies. However, by all means, don't take the book to the heart and expect to have similar experiences yourself if that is the reason why you pick up this book.
Nigel tells it all. From making money from scratch as he did to being at the top as he is. Clear and precise, not without looking at himself, he tells stories of models and photoghaphers and their interaction. As sometimes is and how it should be. In very readable language Nigel grants us a view into the fashion and glamourworld, as being not all joy and fun, but also not entirely without it. The Jekyll and Hyde character of the profession of model or photographer, the tension, the pressure, it's all in this book. Beauty photographer should read this. It's good reading for models too I loved this book.
The author has a great sense of humor, and it is great to hear the story of a successful working photographer from his first shoot ever to a big shoot on an island with four gorgeous models. One person found this helpful. It was a fairly interesting read, but the typos and incorrect grammar were very distracting. This is a good book It really doesn't help me a lot. He shares a few ideas Mostly just ramblings about things he's run into in the past. It's Ok Simply put, this book is a users guide for any one who is interested in shooting glamour or nude on a pro level! This is a useless piece of "I wish" fantasy by Nigel Holmes.
It has nothing to do with photography or glamour. The author also explains how Hollywood Cinematographers are incompetent and British Film Industry Cinematographers are brilliant. Hey, Nigel. What British Film Industry? The publisher could also only afford the Sexy Snap on the cover.
Entertaining, but the title is a little misleading. This book is almost a guide on how to become a photographer for Men's Magazines, not really a story, but a collection of anecdotes and information on how to get started as a photographer of nude women. One thing stuck out to me in this book - Most photographers will never send their photos to a publisher.
Very true, but even if they did, most would never get the work that Nigel does. Even fewer would be able to make a living from it. I know he's out to sell a book here, but the last thing the photography market needs is another thousand shutter bugs with no business sense running around pretending to be not only photographers, but glamour photographers.
