Fred Kurtz Shows The Beauty of Blurb Books

Posted Sep. 26th, 2012 by Daniel J. Cox

One of our favorite people, Fred Kurtz, who has traveled the world with us, recently sent me a link to a book he’s published on trains. Fred and his wife Kathy are two of the nicest people you’ll ever meet and Fred loves photography. He’s fairly new to the game of creating pictures, but he jumped in with both feet from the very start. His projects span from landscapes to trains to wildlife and culture, all of them receiving his utmost in creativity and fun-loving spirit. Take a look at his newest project on trains, one of his many passions. Not only is this a great example of terrific photography, but it’s also a great showcase of Blurb’s online publishing capabilities.

Fred visited North Platte NE to shoot Union Pacific’s 150th birthday at Rail Fest 2012. Click on this image to be taken to an online version of Fred’s book from the online publisher Blurb.

Many of our traveling guests use Blurb and I’ve personally seen several of their high quality books. Other publishers many use include My Publisher and Apple. Out of these three, Blurb offers the highest quality that I’ve seen so far, but I know others are very happy with My Publisher and Apple as well. Apple’s Aperture and Adobe’s Lightroom offer capabilities to design your book then print directly from the program. It’s that simple, fast and easy. Take a look at the pictures that inspired Fred and check out any of these publishers for yourself. Blurb even allows you to sell your book from their online store. So get creative, get inspired and follow your passion to tell great stories with your images. Make a commitment to get published and inspire the world with YOUR creativity!
