Default photogs who can write

Since I know some of you collect books of the news photog genre, retired CBS photog Wade Bingham wrote a book recently that I became aware of.

http://www.lulu.com/us/en/shop/wade-...-20550436.html

Mr. Bingham for those who don't recognize his name, is the last survivor I know of the handful of ex-newsreel photogs that Ed Murrow and Fred Friendly lured into working for CBS back in 1954 when they decided to abruptly end their arrangement of hiring Hearst's newsreel crews for filming See It Now in the aftermath of an unfortunate incident involving CBS's Don Hollenbeck and a Hearst newspaper columnist. You'll also find Bingham listed in the credits of 60 Minutes, etc, etc.

I will be getting this book. Thanks for the heads up!

There was another photog book posted a while back and I have been unable to find it.
Any help would be welcomed.

I will also reccomend a book. Empire of the Air. Great book on the people and struggles of early broadcast journalism when papers saw radio like we see the internet.
A great read.

Omar

Well I keep a running list here http://www.newsphotog.com/publications/ that is updated as I am made aware of the existence of titles out there. The older books on that list can be hard to find at times (or listed for extortion-level prices), but the newer titles are easy to locate copies of.
