In this small, tongue-in-cheek booklet, Thomas Vanden Driessche outlines how to be a number of photographer types in four simple steps. Using humorous stereotypes, photo booth self-portraits and no little amount of self-depreciation, he enlightens the curious layperson who seeks to become, for instance, a contemporary photographer, war photographer, conceptual or surrealist photographer, wildlife photographer or modern photojournalist, and even goes so far as to include a (bad) amateur, wedding, kitsch, crowdfunded or emerging photographers. Steps toward becoming a photographer aligned with either the Helsinki or Düsseldorf school are an added bonus.
