Reccomended reading?

Hi all, I've just gone pro but still pretty new to everything so wondered if anyone can reccomend any good books (or articles/websites) about professional photography techniques? Also any about the business side (legalities, copyright, advertising etc.)
Thanks

Re: Reccomended reading?

Here's a good book about the business side :

The Bigger Picture: The Essential Business Guide for Photographers: Amazon.co.uk: Jeanne Griffiths: Books

The subject of 'techniques' has such a huge variation, you'd have to narrow down your area of interest, in order to avoid information overload

Re: Reccomended reading?

Thanks for the info guys.
Should have mentioned at the top that i'm doing portrait photography. Mainly family/children/pets. I'm not considering weddings at this stage but would do portraits for other things like fashion, sports, events if i get offered the work.
I'll have a good read through all the links on here and will definately order a copy of that book from amazon.
Will have to have a read of the BFP website to see if it's something that i might consider.
Thanks!

I'd recommend this as well if you are starting a business.

I don't think WonkeyRabbit is UK based.
