Mark Gilvey is an artist and photographer in Northern Virginia near Washington, DC. He began his career documenting endurance sports car racing. He later became interested in multi-image production, designing art for panoramic presentations using multiple slide projectors. As technology evolved, Mark taught himself digital design and went on to work in pre-press, web design, and marketing. He eventually formed his own company, Mark Gilvey Creative, where he provides design services to small and medium-sized businesses.
Mark has several personal photo book projects in the can and decided to use Blurb or other pint on demand services to make them a reality. However he discovered that it was difficult to make the end product, printed by someone else, match his creative vision.
So Mark called upon his many years of printing and graphic design experience to create a process to prepare photos and files so that they look best when printed. Mark’s process is now available to anyone through his book Blurb for Photographers.
Mark joined us for this special podcast episode to share some tips and techniques to make your photos look their best when printed on demand.
