Self Publishing Advantages - July-16-08

Editorial photographers, portrait artists and landscape photographers may not seem to have much in common on the surface - beyond the obvious profession in photography. But there is something: the desire to see their work in print.

Publishing photo books by conventional means isn't always as simple as submitting your best work to a publisher. Often, like many things, in order to be published, you need to be established and in order to get established, you need to be published.

Self-publishing with printed photo books however, takes a the challenge and frustration out of getting published. When you use a printed photo book and lay out your best news shots, portraits or landscape images along with your sense of mission, purpose and anything else that you'd like to include.

Once you've self-published, there will be other options available as well. For example, you can take your work to local book stores to see whether or not they would be willing to sell it on consignment. You could then take a successful photo book to publishers to look for distribution contracts. In other words, doing it on your own up front will allow you to reach your goals.

You didn't start your business with experience and exposure, but your hard work paid off. Why not see where your next efforts can take you?

What Do People Say

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! "
