    Re: Self Publishing LF Photo Book

    I chose a publisher who only does photography books, hence we had an excellent rapport throughout the entire process. I worked with Brooks Jensen of Lenswork Publishing. A rough layout and 60 b&w silver prints were provided by me, along with 15,000 words of text. The prints were scanned by Brooks. It was quite a time consuming project, and extended over the better part of a year. However, I wanted the best reproductions possible and was happy with the results. The press run was 500 books; I am sole distributor.

    Merg, I love your book. The quality is outstanding and the images are amazing. Your story is something everyone should read. A book I am proud to own.

    Re: Self Publishing LF Photo Book

    Have often pondered about publishing a Photo book. Never figures out how to make this happen.
    LOTs of images to chose from and projects to be done, keep believing the market for Photo books is tiny and would not be viable to do.

    Merg, that's very kind of you to say. Thank you! I don't know how I missed your book announcement, but I'm very glad that I can still buy one.
