- Marco’s photo book of the month pick is: Street Photography – First Steps and Beyond by Valerie Jardin ($10 ebook). To go along with the main topic of this episode I pick this book by Valerie because it is a great street photography hands on guide for beginner and intermediate street photographers. And it is a good source of inspiration for those who want to get guidance to try out different styles of street photography. Here is the link to the ebook: https://gumroad.com/l/jGVpl
