A Photoblogger breaks into books

Valerie J. Cochran, the Berkley, CA-based webmistress of your waitress photos, has just released her first collection of photographs in book form, titled your waitress | 2004 - 2005. It is now available through Blurb, a snazzy-looking print-on-demand site.

From the introduction to your waitress | 2004 - 2005:

The images in this book represent a stumbling reentry into photography that never had a clear goal or destination. all of the photographs and text originally appeared at the photoblog your waitress photos between 2004 and 2005. The text may be a shorter form of the original comments for the image, however any typos were not corrected. the photographs were all found with a 35mm camera, a 50mm lens, and various films. This book is dedicated to photobloggers everywhere.

It really is amazing to see such hard work pay off. One of the great things about being involved in the blogosphere is to see fellow writers take an active role in developing and marketing their careers. You never know what kind of projects and opportunities will spring from this "underground" approach!

Wow! Thanks Tim for the kind write-up. I am excited to be one of the many bloggers and photobloggers who are transforming the publishing world. A huge credit goes to the amazing quality and ease of POD sites such as Blurb. I hope the trend continues.

Best of luck with The CameraArts Blog as well!
