Create Your Own Photo Book — New from Rocky Nook

Design a Stunning Portfolio, Make a Bookstore-Quality Book

Farnham, UK—These days, photographs live on hard drives and DVDs in the company of several thousand other images, coming to light on a computer screen only for a short moment, if ever. In that respect, our computers provide a one-image-at-a-time exhibition of our photographic work. But as photographers, we like to print our best images, frame and show them at home or at an exhibition, or present a collection of prints in a portfolio.

Create Your Own Photo Book (Rocky Nook) will guide you through the process of creating a printed and bound collection of photos to share with friends and family, a professional portfolio of your photographs, or even a bookstore-quality coffee table book. Learn about every step of the process, from selecting a book publishing service all the way through designing and proofing your photo book. You’ll get practical advice on how to work with software provided by services such as Blurb and Picaboo, and will learn about relevant concepts of book design, color management, and digital printing.

Create Your Own Photo Book is the perfect guide for the aspiring amateur photographer as well as the seasoned pro.

Book are the best way to show off your images in bulk I feel. If I was going into a meeting with a client and they wanted to see my work, you dont wan't to hand them a business card with your website on or show them your website/work on your tablet, laptop or computer. You want to slam this book infront of them and see the rections on they're faces to your photographs and print quality, that is a great impression to make for your client(s).
