First step in designing a photo book, is to figure out why are you making one as it will affect the layout and the outcomes of the book itself. What is the photo book publication purpose? Is it a collection of your best images to be sold as an inspiration or your portfolio? Are you simply just wanting to share it with friends and family, give it as a gift etc. Or is it going to be shown in galleries or art exhibitions?

No matter the reason, we will be there for you every step of the way to design your book that will satisfy your taste.
SIZE OF BOOK
When you think about designing photography book, would you assume that it has to be big, expensive, and very time-consuming? Well the truth is that photo book can be whatever you imagine it to be. The book can vary in size, shape, and of course in their price. Price can vary depending on the size and material cost, but we are here to assist you, so you will choose the best option that fit your needs.
Photo book does not have to be just a best collection of your images but a collection of photos taken with a specific motive or subject, or you can even work with shots taken within a specific time frame. There are endless ways giving meaning to your publication because it all depends on the purpose of your book.
Be very selective when choosing the photos for your book, chances are, not every single photo is going to make it into your photo book. However with our team it’s really easy, because we know how to present your photography and we will be happy to assist in choosing the photos for the book. You should also narrow down the photos to your liking first by picking only that are essential to the story or theme that you are trying to tell, and the purpose of publishing the book.
Just as with any other book, your photo book may also tell a story but including text in your photo book is completely optional. The text may include a location name, date, or a description of an event. The details can help to enrich your book and keep the story flowing, but avoid cluttering or else it will overpower your images. Book theme is always a great idea and we may help you to choose a font that best suits the style of the book.
First impression is one of the most important aspect of a book, as it is the first thing that your reader will look at. For your cover choose photos which will intrigue to look inside the book, also use photos that represent the content of the book. This is what will show when the book is sitting on the coffee table. Your book is the result of very unique vision along with right place at the right time moment, that you captured with the camera.
There are different variety of layout options that can suit your needs but it is best to always keep it simple and be consistent with it. It is important not to make your readers bored or confused by varying your layout.
