Veteran's Day - July-16-08

In times when the world seems unstable, Veterans' Day becomes increasingly important. Recognizing the service that others have performed or are performing is a valuable exercise.

For photographers, it may not seem as though you have much to contribute - unless of course, you received your training during service. However, printed photo books make it possible to give something back.

Consider taking photos of local soldiers, in uniform and while participating in training exercises, organizing the photos and creating a photo book to donate to your local library. Photograph a Veterans' Day parade and create a photo book commemorating the experience. Spend time at a local VA hospital and collect portraits and stories from those who are patients: young and old, stories and photos will honor their stories and their service to country.

In addition to creating single photo books for donation to a local library, consider making multiple copies and selling them with the proceeds benefiting a local veterans' organization: by doing so, you'll not only honor local vets, but you'll also - to some extent - market your services and create goodwill.

Not everyone is compelled to serve, but that just makes it all the more important to honor those who are. Photo books are a great way for photographers to do so.

What Do People Say

Laura, from Underwood, WA
"I just loved my photobook. The color of the photos is just great! I started my photobook last Saturday afternoon and put over eighty photos in the book, finished, proofed and placed the order Sunday afternoon. Now I have the book, this is unbelievable! My husband could not believe I made such a professional book myself! I will definitely make another one for my mom soon. Thank you! "
