Shoot the Stars: How to Become a Celebrity Photographer

Brad Elterman, Author California Features International $12.95 (158p) ISBN 978-0-933781-00-9
Elterman was 16 when he took pictures at a rock concert with a borrowed camera and made his first sale. Today he has his own photo syndicate and is himself a celebrity. He notes that there is a vast worldwide market for photos, including publications like National Enquirer, People, US and Paris-Match. He shows in dozens of illustrations that the pictures of celebrities need not be artistic, well composed or even technically correct. Their chief value is that they existDean Martin packing a pistol, Farrah Fawcett agrin, Joan Collins purring, people in new liaisons newly photographed, etc. The author keeps his word and advises how to do the job. (Boldness, alertness and persistence are paramount.) He also tells how to market the forthcoming photographs with the help of his ""secret list'' of customers, which actually aren't so exclusive.
