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.

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.

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.

This book takes you from beginning to end in G+ for photographers (and beyond). It is a great guide to take your photos at the highest level, using Googles+ in the best way. Sometimes it needs some updating because these social networks evolve very fast, but nothing you really cannot solve by yourself. Highly recommended.

It helped me understand how Google+ works and how to use it as an amature photographer. Well done Mr. Brown!

This book was exactly what I needed to begin presenting my photography on Google+. Colby Brown has done his homework, including spending time with the Google employs who are building the site. This allows him to not only explain how the site works, but also give insights into what's going on behind the scenes. Thanks to this book, I feel I have a much clearer picture of how the site operates, including many functions and aspects I doubt that I would have discovered on my own. It is clearly written with plenty of screen shots to illustrate what is being discussed. Highly recommended.

A great book, that answered the question I kept asking "So what?". I know Google+ is a great social platform, I know that it is a great time to get active on this network before it really takes off, but how exactly do I take advantage of this? Sure I can learn what each button and widget does, but so what? I can learn that on my own. What I needed to know was practical application and a strategy on how to make this platform work for me, and improve my exposure, especially as a photographer. I fully recommend you read the book and then go add +Colby Brown to your circles.
