Used to be, I will only think about making or enhancing my portfolio book when I have clients meeting. Which was quite easy as I just print out more recent work and stick it into a custom 14×14 album.
Then one album became a couple more as my body of work grew, and it was gettingÂ ridiculous because I was having trouble bringing them out around town for client meet. That’s when I started to use Blurb book. I did a couple standard pre-wedding and wedding day books for few clients and I thought may be it is time for me to get down to business and select some of the best work I have done andÂ compiling all into one book, a book just to illustrate what type of photographer I am.
I had a really awesome and busy wedding season in 2011, and as you can tell that almost none of them make it into this blog yet, (I go home, I upload, and whatever catch my eyes go up on my Face Book album…which honestly had led to me not getting fully rested after 18 hours of work because I often get too excited and stay up till 3:00 am to watch all of the awesome shots load in my light room.) So, I pull some of those photos that I posted and made another book, complete with only wedding day coverage using Bookify.
Last year there was a record amount of pre-wedding sessions (and everyone look so damn good!); and they get so many praises among friends and clients that I just wanted to go all out and do a true coffee table book. That’s right, a 240 pages 11×13 hard cover portrait book. Not all of the session are in there, I just selected a few that meant a lot to me.
