Melanie was instrumental in bringing my book to life. As artists making books, we always find ourselves having to do things beyond the art itself, and Melanie’s knowledge and experience of all facets of the industry is extremely helpful in filling in those gaps, all with the sensibility of being an artist herself.

Your Photography Adventure

Photography is a Personal Experience
What makes a compelling photography or photobook project? There is a home for most photography projects provided that the photographer has the dedication, training, and patience to find it. The path leading from photographer's vision to complete body of work or publication can be daunting. Many photographers need help along the way.

Collecting the Photobook: A Wonderful Habit
Deciding which publications to add to your collection can be overwhelming. My experience in collection development provides an invaluable perspective in refining your photobook collection no matter its foundation. Whether based upon the art and design of the book as an object, amassing the works of classic or contemporary artists, or genre-specific, I work with you to resource and refine the strategic development of your collection.
