Premium print promotions: Lumina Collective

The Australian ‘Lumina Collective’ created a series of saddle-stitched portfolios to distribute their images to agencies, editors, galleries and fans. Here they share the story of their collaboration and creation of photo book publications.

 

 

There should be no surprise that we at Momento Pro believe photographers can elevate their work in print. This philosophy inspired us to introduce a softcover book range that includes perfect bound books and saddle-stitched booklets. They are more affordable and lightweight format making them ideal for self publishing, exhibition catalogues, client guides, and leave-behind portfolios.

A group of talented Australian female photo artists, Lumina Collective, produced a series of booklets they could send to agencies, picture editors, galleries and fans, and below they share the story of their collaboration, and creation of various publications.

A portfolio that speaks volumes: Matt Portch

A portfolio must make an impact, and Melbourne photographer Matthew Portch achieves this with his large format book featuring red, white and blue that complement the large format images of North America on the inside. We ask him about the process of putting it together.

Matthew Portch is a Bristol born lad who now lives in Melbourne, Australia. After a successful career in graphic design, photography captured his interest. He was particularly inspired by the work of North American large-format colour film photographers of the 1960s and 1970s, which is evident in his latest portfolio. Rather than combine a variety of images from different commercial and personal projects, his folio focuses on a single photographic series that walks the line between quietly understated and high impact. We asked him about the process of putting it together.
