As aspiring photographers our goal is to gain recognition and get published. Maybe even land a steady gig for a magazine. Personally, my background was heavy in design which gave me the know how to publish my own work. There are several niche publications out like Frank 151, American Dreaming Magazine, and even Karen + Raoul. But how do they do it? How did they start? What programs do they use?

I've been shooting since I was in high school but it wasn't until my college years that my work actually developed into interesting stories. In the past year (not too far removed from college), I've published four small photo books with subjects ranging from fashion and music to tattoo artists. They're pretty cool and have been getting very good feedback.

This thread is for self publishers to post work you've compiled, and any tips for photogs like us. There are lots of other threads for gear and feedback so let this be one for those who won't wait for the publishers to call.

I think i have enough material for a photobook but I gotta figure out how to package it and market it. 


Might just go this route and call it "photographs"

Definitely research the right printer. I've used Lulu.com and CreateSpace.com. I'd like to explore marketing tactics like sending work to the influential outlets. Also creative branding and events. Print isn't dead. It's becoming more refined.

No in addition to Lulu and Createspace, there are all in on places like Adorama, Mixbook, Shutterfly, Blurb, and way more. I prefer Createspace at this time because its owned by Amazon which means your books will be available there in addition to you own store. I just wish they had hardback options.
