My Street Photography Book
Lisbon Streets is my first photography book. It is focused on the Portuguese capital architecture, lifestyle, and narrow streets. Street Photography is my passion and I had a great time making these images. The photographs were taken over a period of 2 years and I visited many of the city’s famous neighborhoods such as Alfama, Mouraria, and Bairro Alto. I also designed the book and self-published it using the MagCloud website. I opted to shoot this project in black and white because I love how timeless it looks and I think it works perfectly for street photography photos.
MagCloud is an online publishing service owned by Blurb. They let you set the cost for your publication and markup it to receive profits from them monthly. MagCloud offers users a variety of publishing and distributions services including automated ordering, print management, worldwide shipping, direct mail services, digital distribution, and an online storefront, all free of charge.
I made this video to raise awareness about the book but also because I really enjoy making slideshows of my photos. It is fun to make them and a great way to showcase your work, I highly recommend. I used Final Cut Pro to make this one but you can use any other editing software, even iMovie which is super easy to use and also free!
Feel free to check my books and prints on MagCloud.
