  1. I attended Pam Turner's photography session with Andy Comins. Together, they led nonfiction authors through the process of producing and selecting high-quality photos for our nonfiction projects. I was thrilled with the wealth of information and the detailed handouts Pam and Andy provided. They also gave excellent advice on negotiating with editors regarding photo illustrated books. A must-see for nonfiction authors!
