Who in their right mind would put a bare, butt-naked
photo of themselves on the cover of their book?
Seriously? Why would anyone buy a book on photography success with a naked guy on the cover?
Let me give you 16 good reasons…
Hi friends, that's me on the cover. My name is Robert Provencher and I have been a professional portrait photographer for over 27 years. I am "not" an exhibitionist by nature. As a matter of fact I was quite reluctant to use this image on the cover, but when I polled just about everyone I know about what they thought (and I fully expected half to turn away in revulsion), it seemed to be the perfect picture.
Everyone said so. It was "so you" they said. The one and only objection I received was from my wife.(She being the conservative accountant this didn't surprise me- or maybe she's tired of seeing me without clothes.)
Anyhoo, the title says it all. I wrote this book with the intention of revealing "EVERYTHING" it takes to succeed as a portrait photographer. This is not a "feel good, sugar coated" generic type of book. I really did reveal all. It may offend some, but the way I see it, I either call it the way I see it or say nothing at all.

The truth is, you can't take yourself too seriously. That's why I went with the cover I did. If you take the photographic industry and all it's bloated egos and prima donnas, you quickly understand that (especially in todays day and age and uncertain times) having fun, making people laugh, loving what you do and making as much money as you want is about the one and only way to make it work.
That's the way I see it anyways, and that's what's in this book. It's everything that I discovered that is important to being successful and happy.
