Most good photographers also have a wide and varied book collection to draw from when they need it. If you want to grow as a creative, then you should seriously consider some, if not all, of these book suggestions.
When you think about it, a good book is a screaming bargain. For the same cost of a few overpriced coffees, you can purchase something that could change your life. The right books can help improve your photographic practice, teach you about business, or even give you much-needed motivation to shoot more. You could always hit Google or Amazon to find out what's popular, but a personal recommendation will always beat some website's algorithm.
This week, the team over at the Futur is back with some highly recommended books for creatives to read. While none of these suggestions are directly referencing photography, they're all still worthy of a place on any photographer's bookshelf. What I like about this particular video, is that each book featured has its key concepts summarized as well as explaining how the suggested title has helped that particular creative in their practice. Some of the issues raised in these books include how creatives can make business work, learning about the origins of particular colors, to building a powerful brand.
So, if you need a jolt of something to help your creative practice or maybe could do with a gift suggestion for one of your photography friends, check out this video.
Have you read any of the books recommended? Care to share some of the titles that have helped you most as a photographer? We'd love to hear from you on the comments below.
