Photo books

2 min read

Lulu photo books are great for two types of people:
1. Professional photographers.
2. Everyone else with a camera.

I’ll go through a case study of sorts with both types. Firstly, take “Bloke.” He’s a professional photographer in England who’s become a friend of mine. Check out this photo of a little girl at a wedding… Bloke wonders, “do you think she knows it’s a lemon?” I could gush for paragraphs about how much I love this shot. But I’ll let you do your own gushing. The point is, Bloke is a brilliant photographer – and he’s a fan of Lulu photo books. They work for him because they look like “real published ‘coffee table’ books, not chunky heavy albums with bits that fall out when you pick them up”. Great for clients, too.

Second example: the point-and-shooter (like me). I took this shot in Cape Haitian, Haiti in June 2007. The sign is in Haitian Creole, and reads “Protect the environment- it guarantees life”.  This picture sums up my experience in Haiti pretty nicely- bright colors, joy, hope, and a smidgen of desolation. By no means is it professional grade. The lighting is all wrong, I’m sure my angles are laughable, etcetera (pros don’t hate on me too hard!). But that’s not what matters- it’s a memory. I love this shot for its nostalgic value, not artistic brilliance. I’m putting it into a photo book for the sole sake of remembering. The only person who’d appreciate the photo book as much is my dad- and that’s completely fine.

So – are you a professional (a la Bloke) or a point-and-shooter like me? Maybe a little of both? Either way- check out Lulu photo books and Bloke’s photography website for some eye candy.

  1. Wοw, awesome blog layout! How lengthy have you ever been running a blog for?
    yyou made running а blog look еasy. Thе whole
    loiok of ykur website iss wonderful, let alone the content!

  2. I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally
    educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something not enough people are speaking intelligently
    about. I’m very happy that I stumbled across this during
    my hunt for something relating to this.

  3. A few weeks ago I was given the task of photographing a few barricades. It’s too bad I did not have the LuLu photobook with me at the time because it taught me alot even through the first 4 pages! Definitely recommended
