I first saw "White Glove First Edition Books" at the Professional Photographers of America trade show in Atlanta in the summer of 1999. Since it's pretty much just Monte Zucker and I that cover the wedding side of things in Shutterbug, and we usually write about technique, I've been...

Pity the poor portrait and wedding photographer, and I include myself in that group. For years we've been reading about how digital imaging and the Internet are revolutionizing photography, and we've been sitting on the sidelines. Well...
