Greg Sullavan and his fellow photography mentors, Jay Collier and Scott Stramyk, are the Photographers Collective. Libby and Geoff from Momento Pro have teamed up with the trio to host a workshop on Norfolk Island later this year and we’d love you to join them. Get a sneak peek of what to expect below, and read on to learn about Greg’s journey from photography enthusiast to photography educator to photo book creator. He also shares his experience of preserving a personal photographic project in a photo book.
Darran Leal is a wild life and wild places photographer who runs the second oldest photo tour company in the world. Recently we printed his ‘photographic legacy’ book titled Wild Visions, so we’ve asked him to provide some guidelines for anyone else wanting to create a portfolio or photo book of your images that span years and possibly decades.
Now in its sixth year, the Australian Photographic Society’s (APS) annual Photo Book Awards 2021 attracted a total of 20 entries. While the number of submissions was down on last year (impacted by the extended lockdowns in Victoria, New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory) the quality of entries was once again very high. Congratulations to the six winners across the Storytelling and Portfolio categories, whose books are outlined below and offer plenty of food for thought for your next creation.
Momento Pro was honoured to produce this custom collector’s edition book and box set for British war photojournalist Tim Page. Nam Contact is an epic retrospective of his unseen black-and-white Vietnam War pictures encompassing an oversized 448-page book, a reproduction of a 1966 Kodak flexographic box with an insert for a loupe, and an embossed folio case for a signed and numbered print. Learn about its creation in Will Shipton’s article, Nam Contact: Symphonic coda to Tim Page’s Vietnam, originally published in Inside Imaging on 16 April 2021.
