I thought about doing a DVD or a book. If i did would many people be interetsed in it and how big would my target market be? I have been thinking about it for a while though. I might get around to it soon and see how it goes. Maybe sell it off my site then approach a publisher. Has anyone ever seen anything like this before? if so can you give me some examples :-)

Hi Jason,

If you do a search on Amazon.com you will find there are quite a few photographers that have produced books or Dvds. Currently the only one of thoes books I own is Garage Glamour by Rolando Gomez(http://www.rolandogome​z.com (external link)) and is quite an interesting book, if you want you can borrow it next time we meet up.

As far as I know there arent any australian photographers that are producing books on your type of photography and going into even the bigger bookshops in Sydney it is difficult to find books on Glamour photography, so there may be some room in the Australian market if you can find a publisher willing to take the risk.

Regards,
Zac

Our own Frank Doorhof has done several books and a DVD (I know, I have them) as well as posting "behind the scenes" videos of some of his shoots on his website. I don't know how successful he has been at it but he is my primary, number one, glamor photographer mentor and I haven't even started shooting yet! :-) I think if you did a DVD showing how you went about setting up a dozen of the images in your series it might sell well but I am really not knowledgeable.

Thanks for the story Jason. It's always nice to read someone elses success story in a non-patronising way. As you say, personality and a happy customer go a long way when it comes to marketting.

Someone asked about rates etc... here in the UK there is a website from the NUJ (National Union of Journalists) and from here you can get an idea of rates that you would charge dependant on for whom.

Hope that is of use, I'm sure there must be similar websites for other countries.

Thanks guys :-)

I hope my story helps everyone achieve their own goals. The only thing REALLY standing in your way to achieve your dreams is YOU. If you get over that hurdle then anything is possible.
