Am I right in suggesting that every photographer wants their images to be published?
Are you a photographer that would like your images printed in a magazine, or even a book? Have you been asked, “do you want to be published?”
It’s certainly a nice feeling to see your images in print. Whether in newspaper or magazine, there’s a great sense of achievement. A level of respect from the editor or publisher of that publication, and then the admiration of the readers.
It takes a lot of commitment in your specific field of expertise to get shots published, depending on the quality of publication. Most people wont even reach for that, or just simply don’t have the time to commit.
One thing photographers can do is design a photobook. A coffee table book. Something they’ll put in position when friends or relatives come by. Something to gain the same senses of achievement and admiration. Its so easy to plug in a USB stick and perform a slideshow on your massive LED/LCD/Plasma screen, but it comes back to the feeling of having your photos professionally printed and bound in a hand-held book.
Pretty soon, I’m going to compile my own photobook. And I’m going to tell you about it.
Have you ever had your photos printed ?
