Join professional landscape and travel photographer, Gary Crabbe, as he discusses the production of his two latest books, Greetings from California, and Photographing California, Vol. 1 – North. Each book was produced by two different publishers for a completely different set of readers. Gary will outline and highlight his thought processes and choices regarding the different editorial and commercial considerations each project required, and how those played into the role of researching subjects, locations, ideal shooting conditions, and editing images to eventually be included in the books. If you ever wanted to know some of the realities behind the making a book project long before it reaches the press, this will be a great presentation to attend. Afterwards, Gary will be happy to answer questions about images, gear, processing techniques, or the publication processes.
