Did you buy Steven Frischling's book, "The Traveling Photographer's Essential Pocket Guide"?

Neither did we, or anyone for that matter. According to Steven Frischling, on July 22, 2008, he "just inked a contract" to write a mere 135-page book called "The Traveling Photographer's Essential Pocket Guide." (See our previous post on this topic.)


He spammed every forum he could with the same post, bragging on FlyerTalk and on this forum about his accomplishment. On the second forum, he claims "This is not a book I had written an (sic) pitched, this is a book I was approached to write by the publisher."



This is mystifying. It's now been SEVEN YEARS and the eagerly awaited tome has yet to appear. Queries on SportsShooter from eager photographers ready to hand over their money have been met with radio silence. Fish refuses to tell us what happened to his book that an "international publishing firm" was eager to pay him to write (but only after "a few months of negotiations" of course).

We know you're special Fish, but why hasn't the book come out yet? Shouldn't you have been able to handle at least a rough draft? Surely the "international publishing firm" would have granted you a few deadline extensions. How hard is it for a professional photographer who has claimed to have amassed "1 million frequent flyer miles" to write a short book full of tips for traveling photographers?


Tell us FishFraud Fans, do you think he had a book deal and failed to deliver anything worth printing or do you think he made the whole thing up?

  2. It took me 5 years of flying to earn a million frequent flier miles without credit card nonsense or having someone else pay for my flights. But the best part is that people who have that or higher can actually prove it! Fish, not so much.

    Fish also had a "travel photography" class at Adorama, and some lame-ass $5k a week "workshop" where you fly to 6 different European capitals in a week and "think on your feet" as a photographer - or some shit like that.

    But we can always subscribe to his blog for a dollar every two weeks from Amazon.

  3. Is Fish's age higher than his IQ? Why would anyone pay a red cent to "subscribe" to his shitty blog? He can't even give that drivel away.

  4. So you have all of this info, but are still a little punk and hide behind your keyboard and monitor. Why don't you make this a fair fight and tell us who you are so we can find some made up dirt on you as well.

    1. Fair fight? Made up dirt? All of the things posted on this website are HIS OWN WORDS! How is that made up? Look at what is written by HIM. I don't understand why people defend Frischling. The guy lives a lie. He screws over people. Spreads misinformation.

    2. Maybe he does but at least it's under his name. Why don't you grow a pair and tell us who you are.

    3. I like how this keyboard warrior doesn't attempt to deny or explain anything. Instead it's just "let's fight!"

      I mean, it's totally understandable - you were taken in by a fraud. You liked his stories. You thought he lived the life you always wanted with exotic travels and adventures in places unknown. You might have even given him some money. And when you find a site that tells you that everything you've been told is a complete and utter lie, your first instinct is to lash out and not admit that you were taken by a con artist. It's perfectly understandable. It takes a lot of personal courage to admit that.

    4. You want to know who we are? We are everyone. Everyone who hates you. Everyone who has had to put up with your bullshit going on 20 years. We have all this info because you wrote it, idiot.

    5. what "made up dirt"......? All this information is from Frischling himself. Are you denying that he wrote he had a contract to write a book?

    6. "Why don't you grow a pair and tell us who you are." says the guy who comments as anonymous

    1. You would think that he would maybe stop making shit up since he knows people watch his evrry move but I guess he just isn't smart enough to figure that out.

    2. What makes me laugh is that he continually doubles down on his own lies. No sense of shame.

  6. what a tool. Four phones, three tablets, two laptops and one fucking loser lining it all up to take a photo like it is impressive. If you need all this stuff to do your job, you're incompetent. https://instagram.com/p/6LLU55j4MT

    2. Remember, he's the clown that needed two laptops to send his shitty pics when he was a fauxtographer
