10 Ideas for Photo Books - July-16-08

Photo book marketing is still a relatively new way for photographers to get the word out about their services. Maybe that's why a number of us are having trouble getting started with setting up our printed photo books.

If you've been struggling, here are 10 ideas - 10 potential themes - for your printed photo books:

  1. Babies and Children: If your photography involves portraits of kids, you'll find that it's easy to capture them in a wide variety of settings - birthday parties, family functions, playing in the yard. Create a photo book that captures your best work to market your services of provide your customers with a new type of keepsake to treasure.
  2. Travel: If your photographic pursuits take you around the world, why not capture your travels in a printed photo book?
  3. Weddings:Wedding photographers are always looking for new ways of marketing their services. Every bride wants a fairy tale wedding; why not capture that fairy tale in a customized photo book?
  4. Family Heritage: Many people enjoy researching their family trees. Photographers who are willing to create memorabilia that transcends generations and gather family heritage have a unique service to offer their clients.
  5. Graduation: Every year, senior portraits are big business for many photographers, but why not offer something more? Include photos from other years, capture special moments from throughout the year and help to create a keepsake far more personal than a senior yearbook.
  6. Birthdays and anniversaries: what better way to honor someone's life history than capturing key moments - birthdays and anniversaries that they have celebrated throughout the years?
  7. Holiday centric: Photographers capture beautiful moments - both within the work that they do and while they are celebrating with their families. A printed photo book is a great way of collecting those memories.
  8. Sports: Most photographers with kids capture a taste of sports photography; why not use a photo book to highlight great moments for the team and individuals on it?
  9. Seasons: Many photographers capture moments throughout the year, or they have a favorite season. By capturing the changes in the seasons, you'll find great inspiration for creating a photo book.
  10. Events: Great concerts, outdoor festivals and even family reunions provide great content for a printed photo book - and make you feel better about taking your camera with you everywhere you go.

Of course, these are only a few ways that you can use photo books; once you've created one or two, it won't be hard to come up with countless ideas for more.

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! "
