84-page guide includes contributions from Roger Tooth, Dan Chung and Sean O'Hagan

Those with a keen interest in photography should look out for The Guardian this Saturday 17 Nov, which contains a free 84-page photography guide.

Among the contributors to the guide is Roger Tooth, head of photography at The Guardian, who shares some techniques to help photographers take creative control of their camera. As head of photography, Tooth edits the Picture Desk Live: Best News Pictures of the Day feature at The Guardian and is also author of the book Eyewitness Decade, a photographic collection exploring the first ten years of the new millenium.

In addition to technique, there's a guide to essential kit by Dan Chung, award-winning staff photographer at The Guardian. Chung has reported from Iraq in 2003, post-tsunami Indonesia in 2004 and the 2006 earthquake in Pakistan. More recently, he photographed the 2012 Olympics on a smartphone. Here are his tips on travel photography.

Also featured is experienced feature writer Sean O'Hagan, who writes extensively on photography and on many other subjects.

Other contributors to the guide include Tom Jenkins, Suki Dhanda, Martin Argles, Eamonn McCabe, and Antonio Olmos.

Those with portfolios of work at the ready may be interested in entering a competition to win free entry to the photography masterclasses The Guardian is running.

The guide is free with this Saturday's edition of the paper.
