The Passionate Photographer by Steve Simon · DEDPXL


Steve Simon is a quiet Canadian photographer living in the heart of New York City and I love him dearly as a photographer and as a friend. This book is going to be referenced often as we go through the photography assignments here on DEDPXL. The term “Passion” gets thrown around with photography all too often. Sometimes to the point where it loses its meaning. This is NOT the case with Steve’s book. While he is a quiet man, he is fierce about his love and — here it comes… passion about photography.

I’ve learned a lot from him and his book. This is a great book to get you thinking in new and fresh ways while you are out shooting. It’s filled with tips and tricks and suggestions for working a subject or scene to get the best shot you can. Pick this book up now. Note that it isn’t filled with a lot of technical how to stuff. It’s more for your brain and your heart as you become a better photographer.

Buy it here on Amazon. Your purchase helps DEDPXL just a little bit and I appreciate that a whole lot. Really. Thank you.
