Review

" . . .Google+ is the best online platform for photographers — and anyone who wants to display artwork of any kind online, and I think that Google+ for Photographers really delivers for anyone who is attempting to sort out how to use it as a platform to promote their business, their work, or just meet others of a like mind, and so I very highly recommend this book.”

Google+ for Photographers is more than just a guide teaching you how to use the tools and features. It covers the best practices for posting pictures, organizing people into circles, sharing content to those circles and much much more. The significant meat of this book lies in his wisdom for how to leverage G+ to build real relationships with people. There are some subtle nuances that Colby helps you master that ultimately help you grow your audience. That's what we as photographers want right? It doesn't matter if you are doing it for work or pleasure, we have this simple desire to share our creations with people. As photographers, we are edified when we can touch other people through our work. There really isn't ego involved here.

This is a great read.

If you are interested in social media, Google+, photography and/or building an online presence, you should invest in Google+ for Photographers. If you are a photographer and you use social media to promote your work, you need to invest in this book. Not only does Colby Brown explain how you might best use Google+ as a networking tool, he also explains how to build a following and a dynamic online presence. Colby explains Google+ in depth, starting with nuts and bolts such as the differences between social and interest networks, then moves into the specifics of Google+ (aka G+) with respect to both photography and general interaction. As a bonus, while you read you're greeted by some of Colby's images as well as perspectives from and photos by other well-known photographers, all complimenting screen shots of the network. There's both useful information and amazing images. Bottom line: Google+ is a great way to network, build an online presence and become globally connected. Colby Brown does an excellent job of outlining the tools and tips you need to do it successfully.

This book is a very good introduction to Google+, in general. I've had a G+ account for a while but hadn't really explored all the features much. This book does a good job of walking you through the G+ features and explaining them. Since it's written from the perspective of a professional photographer there's a lot of emphasis on using G+ to get yourself (and your work) noticed, how to use G+ as a marketing and customer communications tool. This is not a bad thing and is applicable to anyone who has something they want the world to know about whether it be photographs or other art work, or ideas.

The examples do not match the current versions of the Web and mobile (Mac) apps -- as of May, 2013. As a result, Google+ remains somewhat of a mystery to me. The book claims the app is intuitive, yet the treatment of the subject only intensifies the mystery of it. It seems unlikely to me that the app is really as Byzantine as it appears to be in this book. I walk away from this experience committed to figure out how to use it for good effect for photography. Regretably, this book helps only a little in that endeavor.

Colby Brown has done an excellent job at putting together a thorough and well organized book to help other photographers better understand and get more use out of Google+.

Google+ is an awesome place for photographers to share their work with the world, see amazing work that other talented photographers are doing, and start or participate in live hangouts to share more with others who are as obsessed with photography as they are!

As Google+ is still relatively the new kid on the block, having a book like Google+ for Photographers is very helpful for photogs to quickly learn how they can get more out of this new platform.

Colby clearly covers the key things that most photographers will, or should, be concerned about. Copyright issues and TOS; photo presentation, editing and management; Hangouts, etc...

One thing that I thought was very fresh, innovative and helpful was the inclusion of short interviews of other (some, very well known) photographers and their perspective on Google+, and how they use it. How cool is that?

If I were to suggest anyway that the book could've been better... Hmmm, as I have very little time to read these days, I do love audio books. I don't know if that would be the best medium for this content, as it is focused on photography, but maybe worth considering? Just a thought.

Thanks again, Colby!

Google Plus, AKA, G+ is the google social network, as a photographer this is the first social network I have fallen in love with. The photography community on G+ is simply without anything like it.

But, I have questions, how do I organize images, what is the best file size, how do others make their images look so awesome, and how to best integrate G+ with my business. etc. etc.

This is where Colby Brown comes in, his new book is the answer book for photographers on G+. you may or may not already have figured a lot of this out, however, this book takes you from where-ever you are right now, to being a G+ PRO photo user..

Colby Brown separate the book into "how to" mixed with a bunch of great case studies, narratives with other top G+ photographers about how they use G+.
This is personal user experiences and great ideas which I simply never would happen on myself.

I can not strongly enough recommend this book, for anyone with any serious photography aspirations, whether amateur or professional.
