Your Photographic Adventure

Photographers
What makes a compelling photography project or photobook? There is a home for most photography projects provided that the photographer has the dedication, training, and patience to find it. The path that leads from the photographer's vision to a completed project and/or publication can be daunting, and from the aspect of the collector, deciding which publications to add to your collection can be overwhelming. 

That is where I come in. I work with both emerging and established artists – using my 20 years of experience – to refine their personal vision or see through the publication of an already completed work. I offer advice to artists who are just starting their career and want work on refining their photography for personal and professional development. For those who have completed a body of work and are hoping to put their project in the world through a photobook, I can offer advice on what steps to take next, from preparing proposals and negotiating contracts to fundraising and distribution.

Photobook Collectors
My experience in collection development provides an invaluable perspective in refining your photobook collection no matter the foundation upon which it is founded. Whether based upon the art and design of the book as an object, amassing the works of classic or contemporary artists, or genre-specific interests, I work with you to resource and refine the strategic development of your collection.
