Allow Your Clients to Help Create Their Coffee Table Book - July 16, 2008

Professional coffee table books: those who have visited a number of bookstores have seen coffee table books featuring black and white photographs so striking that the place itself cannot compete or portrait shots collected in a volume will tell you that there's nothing like a coffee table book of photography.

As a photographer, one of the best tips that you can be given is very simple: offer your clients the opportunity to use family photos, event photos and more brought together in a coffee table book.

You'll be able to give them a number of choices:

  • What type of cover should be used on their photo book?
  • Do they want a dust jacket for the photo book?
  • What sort of theme - if any - would they like to center their photo book around?
  • Is there a layout preference that appeals to them?
  • How many pages should the book have?
  • Would they like to add text or other mementos to the photo book?

There you have it: a photo book tip to keep in mind: when you allow your clients to work with you to create a coffee table book, you'll be able to build the rapport that you have with them, enhance your relationship, and provide them with tangible access to their memories.

Laura, from Underwood, WA
"I just loved my photobook. The color of the photos is just great! I started my photobook last Saturday afternoon and put over eighty photos in the book, finished, proofed and placed the order Sunday afternoon. Now I have the book, this is unbelievable! My husband could not believe I made such a professional book myself! I will definitely make another one for my mom soon. Thank you! "
