Overview

Prior to Google+, Photographers relied on a mix of Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, and other services to display their work and interact with others. No single service provided photographers with a complete set of tools that allowed them to connect with others in a rich, meaningful way–until now.

Unlike other social networks, Google+ allows photographers to upload, personalize, and update images easily. The Google+ interface is intuitive and attractiveimages appear large and uncropped in the stream, preserving their original integrity; and the infinite scrolling feature creates a fluid, enjoyable photo browsing experience. In addition, the Google+ interface is built to encourage social interaction, not in miniature sound bites, but in full-length discussions with diverse groups of people. Users can build circles to connect with just those they want to include in different conversations, and they can use the Hangouts feature to talk with other users in real time from anywhere in the world.

With this book, you'll see why Google+ has quickly become the most inspiring and interactive social network for photographers, and you'll learn how to leverage Google+ to build a following and connect with other photographers–and potential customers.

  • Explains how to effectively showcase your work for the vibrant and growing Google+ photography community
  • Shows how to upload, organize, and share your images; and hone your skills through photo-critique circles
  • Features interviews with leading photographers who share their own photos and tips on how to make the most of Google+ to build an online presence

    great book, and not just for photographers!

    Colby, being an amazing photographer himself, wrote this book to help other photographers find their way around Google+ (which, btw, has a THRIVING photographer community). In the process, he actually wrote what I consider to simply be the definitive guide book to Google+ for ANYBODY. He deftly covers every aspect of this new service and doesn't just explain how to use it but WHY to use it.
    To sum up: give Google+ a try (start by circling Colby) and use this book as your guide. You won't be disappointed.

    An excellent guide about Google+ for photographers

    If you are a photographer and you use social media to promote your work, you need to invest in this book. Colby Brown explains how you might best use Google+ as a networking tool, and how to build a following and a dynamic online presence. Google+ is defined in depth, starting with the general differences between social and interest networks, then moving into the specifics of Google+ (aka G+) with respect to both photography and general interaction. The book is also full of great images from Colby and other professional photographers as well as screen shots of the network so there's useful information and amazing images. Colby Brown does an excellent job of outlining the tools and tips you need to successfully network, build an online presence and become globally connected as a photographer.

    Must have for photographers

    Extremely thorough overview of how to hit the ground running with Google plus as a photographer. I particularly got a lot out of Chapter 2, Building an Online Presence.
