Glenn Rand, longtime photographic educator now associated with Adrian College, and Tim Meyer, Lead Portrait Instructor at Brooks Institute, have collaborated to create a thorough and balanced textbook on the modern techniques and practice of portrait photography.

They build on this foundation as they cover all of the technical and aesthetic components of understanding and producing outstanding portraits.
