How to be a Photographer is an unpretentious little book with a red edge. Thomas Vanden Driessche insisted that it be red. He wanted to make the copy more faithful to the original. How to be a Photographer has been making rounds on the web for the past few months. First exhibited in Sète, the book is now being released.

From wedding photography to war correspondence, nothing is spared. He takes on the roles of different characters in a series of self-portraits, and his advice for photographers serves as a typology of photographers today.
