Self promotion has been one of the most difficult things for me to overcome as a photographer. I constantly ask myself “Who cares?”, “Is this relevant?”, and “Do I sound like a douche bag?”.

Blurb and HP-owned MagCloud have entered into an agreement that will transition MagCloud customers over to Blurb over the next six months.

A 40-photo, 20-page book starts at $11.
