Ok, a few folks claimed the GG Update message had garbled the links to the latest book recommendations so I'm giving you those and a couple more here. When I recommend books it's either because I own them personally, have ordered one like the soon to be collector's item Four Inches (see below), or because I want it and will order it soon like the Perilli Calendar book.

*If you don't see the book cover above each discription, hit refresh....

While I have my own book coming out in the Spring of 2006 and hope you buy it, whether you do or not, you should always look at books for references, ideas and even for inspiration. Books on photography I've bought all my life and have been fortunate enough to even meet some of the authors in person. I still have books I bought over twenty years ago and it's not uncommon for me to grab one of those older books and thumb through it for ideas, inspiration or sometimes even motivation. I recommend that you buy at least one of the books below if you haven't already. Some can be bought at even bargain used prices--besides, every purchase you make on Amazon.com helps support the GG community and it will work to improving what we can give back to you, such as contests, better servers and more. Thanks for your support, see below, rg sends!<center><table width="634" border="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="3"><td valign="top" width="200"><font size="2" face="Arial,Helvetica,Geneva,Swiss,SunSans-Regular">

Ah, the master of Rembrandt lighting himself, George Hurrell. Drawing from the Rembrandt qualities of painters, Hurrell was a master also at retouching photos to make the celebrities he photographed really look their best.

Considered one of the most sought after celebrity photographers during Hollywood's Golden Era, Hurrell knew how to glamorize his subjects. I finally ordered this book and don't regret it either.</font></td>

Horst learned from the best, his first job as a photographer's assistant was for George Hoyningen-Huene, chief photographer for Paris Vogue. Seems all the best photographers have a "Kevin Bacon connection" to Paris Vogue.

Whether you're into fashion, glamour or both, this is another book filled with great images and history and worth every penny if you're serious about your photography.</font></td>

I just received this book and it's invaluable on the history of glamour photography. I'm enjoying reading it and it's a must if you want to understand where glamour photography got it's glitz and how Harriet's photography played a role on bringing out fashion and eventually fashion photography--oh yes, what came first, fashion or glamour? Glamour photos of the top stars had a great impact on fashion--want to know more, read the book!</font></td>

One of the greatest fashion and portrait photographers of all time. No photographer should go without having an "Avendon" book in their collection.

This is one photographer who probably photographed every celebrity from the 20th Century alone.

Here again is a book that is inspirational and motivational. As photographers we often get into "ruts" and if you feel you're shooting brown cows and want to find that purple cow, grab this book for ideas and inspiration and study Avendon as a person, photographer and more.

If you don't buy this book, then buy at least on Avedon book in your photography career. </font></td>

"For over 50 years, Richard Avedon (b. 1923) has captured the creative genius of our time with dazzling insight and incomparable style. Spanning the artist's entire career, from the late 1940s through his most recent work, Richard Avedon Portraits offers a superb selection of his photographic portraits.

"... This challenging innovation, coupled with the artist's intense interest in his subjects and mastery of his craft, resulted in mesmerizing portraits-among them Truman Capote, Willem de Kooning, Samuel Beckett, Francis Bacon, and Marilyn Monroe, as well as the uncelebrated Americans of his project, "In the American West"-that rival the greatest works in the portrait tradition."</font></td>

A little erotic photography doesn't hurt anyone. You can even add "eroticism" to glamour. I'm also working on my own book of erotic photography, but for now, I'm going to order this book--besides, it's filled with ideas and I'm sure it's inspiring and motivating!

"Published just last spring to follow the runaway success of Couples and Men, teNeues introduced a third collection of beautifully composed, highly erotic images from acclaimed photographer Stefan May. Now the stunning black and white photographs that revealed the beauty, sensuality, and grace of women&amp;#146;s bodies are available in an exquisitely produced, slip-cased collector&amp;#146;s edition." </font></td>

This book is brand new and will be a collector's item and it also has a forward by Elton John. I've already ordered my copy and will have it by the time I return from Chicago's Glamour, Beauty &amp; the Nude workshop this weekend!

Shot by women photographers like Ellen von Unwerth and featuring models like Christina Aguilera, Rachel Hunter, Kate Moss, Serena Williams and many others, this book helps the Elton John Aids Foundation.

Models, this is a great book for you too!</font></td>

The most sought after calendar of glamour photography, a collector's tradition started in 1963. Features photography by Richard Avedon, Mario Testino, Peter Lindergh, Herb Ritts, Norman Parkinson, Bruce Weber, and Annie Leibovitz who photographed the world's most beautiful women, including Iman, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Kate Moss, and many others.

The Pirelli calendar is exclusive only to VIP's and it's customers, but you can now own the book.

Here's another model's inpirational book too.</font></td>

Jock Sturges newest book shows you about the process, from laying out the shoot to the models--this is awesome if you want to know how and why?

"Over the past decade, Jock Sturges has produced an incomparable body of work that revels in the beauty of the human form and celebrates the naturist spirit. Jock Sturges: Notes gives fans of his unforgettable images a glimpse behind the scenes of his working process, opening up his studio and notes....</font></td>

Hey, it's no biggie. I know you have a lot on your plate right now. If I had your schedule, I'm sure I'd be dropping msgs too. I'm stoked by the fact that you caught it here. If you do have the time though, I'd like to talk to you about an event I'm trying to organize. My contacts are on my website ascendantphotography.com. If you've got a direct line I'd like to call you. Much respect. ADam
