Why You Need to Publish a Photo Book

If I had one wish for photography right now, it would be for talented photographers to publish more books.

Publish 5 or 1000 copies, but get it out there. Share what you’ve learned, even if the lessons you have to teach are lessons we’ve already learned. If they’re valuable, we need to hear them again and again.

Too often photographers consider their end product to be framed prints or one-off Instagram posts.

What would change about your photography style if you were forced to think in terms of a creating books? It would force you to think as a storyteller. That’s the greatest skill a photographer can cultivate.
