If you're young (or maybe even older) and ambitious to succeed as an artist, Phaidon has a new handbook for you. Akademie X: Lessons in Art + Life (here's the UK link) is a compendium of advice from successful artists.
A nice sample, from Stephanie Syjuco: "Stop making 'art' and start making your work. […] It's so easy to make things that look like art, act like art, get sold like art, yet in the end aren't really art, but are phantoms, mere commodities, or quantifiable digestible sound bites."
Not specifically about photography, but not not about photography, either.
