Photo Books and Free Coffee?

Hi,

I'm looking to speak with people who enjoy taking photographs and/or have gone through the process of making a photobook/calendar online, to validate a new business concept I'm working on. It aims at making the process of creating online photobooks and calendars much easier than what is offered today.

I would like to better understand what part of the current process works for you and what frustrates you - or what may have stopped you from making a photobook/calendar online. And then get your feedback and input on my idea about how to make this a LOT easier. If you have the time (about 20 minutes) to meet with me at any coffee shop in Zurich to discuss an interesting new concept - the coffee's on me

Look forward to hearing from you - thanks!

Maike

Hi Maike

Have you had a look at the "Zurich Photoclub" thread under Social Events - Zurich Photoclub.

There are photography enthusiasts of all levels, some of whom may be able to help you with regards to your business idea.

Cheers

Re: Photo Books and Free Coffee?

Hi

I don't know if there are any in CH, so you might actually have a niche there. I've just ordered one from the US and if it wasn't for our beautiful wedding photos the price would've put me off for sure. =)

I thought Hungary was a lot cheaper, so I checked there... and was shocked. These babies are really expensive!

But I did love the platform I used to order from the US, I didn't have to download anything and the suggested designs were really nice, though I ended up changing a lot.

Some things I missed: The leather cover was only available in burgundy and black, while with weddings being far the most profitable events for such companies I would've expected to find white among the colors. Also, sometimes the options for arrangement were not so many, I don't know why a sole pic in a row, for instance, could not be centered. But we still managed to come up with a gorgeous album, though for such a price I wouldn't have ordered anything less.

I hope this helps, if you need the website just PM me. The experience was really good, and I do wish they were CH based or cheaper. =)

Have a nice day.
