Yes, for a printed version.
Yes, but in an e-book format.
Good coverage, but at S$50 a book, point 5 won't lead to point 6. Distributors and book resellers will cut at least 50% from selling price. With only $25 left, it remains quite impossible to pay printer, pay designer, pay photogs royalties, pay for logistics, pay oneself for the efforts.
Well unless if it was a book written by a great political figure (ahem).
Only better way is to print large quantities for international markets. 500 copies on hardback and full color (picture qualities) are usually meant to be given out foc with some big sponsors.
Hence it is no surprise not many local writers are keen to write books targetted for local market.
I, too, would love to get hold of one such book especially on Singaporean customs of different dilect groups in different races.
If you procrastinate, nothing will be done.

I agree with cosycactus. There may be many in CS interested in photography. But considering the market in the whole of Singapore, I think it is very small. Maybe u can sell to CS members, but to general public, unlikely. Now, if you go into something more specialized, like wedding, it's even worse.
Also, I don't think established wedding photogs here wanna be so "generous" and share their personal tips and pointers, if that is to be included in the book. Some very general stuffs perhaps. As it is, there is so much talk about their trade being threatened by so many other photogs. Such a book will be more feasible in bigger countries where photography is more appreciated, like in the US or UK.
