Which Events Make For A Good Photo Book?

Photo books lend themselves to a myriad of projects, life events, special occasions, and team events.

From a professional standpoint, a photo book is an excellent way to promote and explain a body of work. An artist, working in any number of media, can create of photo book filled with examples of completed pieces, for sale or on display in various venues. A builder can chronicle work from the ground breaking shovel stroke to handing over the keys to the owner. A musician can immortalize the highlights of a road tour, whether the gigs were black tie events in a concert hall or bring-your-own-bottle open-air jams. And copies of the self-created photo book, from one to infinity, can be printed-on-demand.

Less formal or intimate weddings, those without the benefit of a professional photographer to record the occasion for posterity, can be captured and celebrated in photo books. The creator of a photo book may well ask wedding guests to offer their best candid or posed shots of the happy couple and others and then upload the worthy into the photo book creating software.

Photo books are great as mementos of once-in a-lifetime events like a girl's Quinceanera or Sweet Sixteen party. They are every bit as appropriate to share the memories of a forty-year-old's official "over the hill" birthday blowout and to celebrate in photos a centenarian's bash which, although would not include a cast of thousands, could easily reach a hundred or more progeny in attendance. All of whom might like to have a photo book as a keepsake.

A long hoped-for child, from first visible baby bump, delivery and onto first birthday could be the subject of a photo book. The path from first meeting to adoption day is equally worth the effort.

Immigration and Naturalization are two major life events offering themselves as a reason to create a photo book. Every year, for nearly four hundred years, adults and children from all over the world have made their way to America's shores in the quest for the life of their dreams. A photo book is a wonderful way to document the passage and beats a written line in a ledger at Ellis Island which is all most of us have of the journey our forebears made. Or maybe the trip we ourselves and the ones we love are making right now.

Sometimes a vacation is more than bodies toasting on tropical sand. Walking the length of Appalachian Trail, a mission trip to a far away land with a strange sounding name, taking part in an archeological dig, diving the Great Barrier Reef - if you dreamed it and did it, you can enjoy it over and over again in the shape of a coffee table sized photo book created by you.

From the first day of practice to the team posing with a trophy on display, and highlights of the action in between, a photo book can be one way to keep on savoring the moment in time when working together toward a common goal paid off big time.
