Below are some photos from last Wednesday’s event discussing new printing choices and custom binding options for photographers’ portfolios. Thank you to Maggie Soladay, for putting in her two cents on what works for her when calling in photographers’ portfolios as a photo editor, and to Judy Ivry for displaying her wonderful book bindings. And thank you for everyone who came out to the studio in the downpour!
Maggie discussed her experience as a photo editor, from calling in books to working with various photographers. Looking at printed portfolios allows her to easily see the quality of imagery that a particular photographer is capable of producing.
Photographers looked at portfolios that were printed with a digital, short-run press. Finally, there is an affordable option to using plastic sleeves or printing your portfolios at home on your desktop printer.
Judith Ivry, a bookbinder with twenty-five years experience, brought samples of books that she has bound for various artists. Working with a bookbinder yields hand-crafted, custom choices for photographers who really want their book to stand out.
Rocky discussed the printing options that we now have available for photographers. He is holding a page from a portfolio we recently printed for Michel Leroy, who replaced his plastic sleeved portfolio pages with prints from the digital short-run press. He was able to use the existing post-binding portfolio covers he already had invested in, and produced five outstanding new portfolios for an affordable price.
If you missed this event, and you’re interested in seeing some portfolios options yourself, please contact us at the studio! We want to help more photographers GO SLEEVELESS!
