Proof Books

I'm trying to locate proof books so I can present my photos to the client more professionally. I just started doing portrait shoots. So ... does anyone have a variety of resources they use for proof books? I can't seem to find the style I'm looking for - partly because of cost and partly because I'm picky. Thanks.

  If you find something, let me know. I am always scouring boutique shops and other places. It shouldn't be so hard. The professional album companies make them too expensive. The other places are not consistent, so you always have to be looking. There's a camera store in my area that has pretty nice leather proof albums.

  Good Question. I have seen very nice leather photo albums in boutiques, which are pricey. When you put together a portfolio, what size prints do you use?

  If you have a business, you can request a catalog from Capri Albums. Good prices.

Otherwise anyone can order from ... they have good prices too.

  I also do portrait work, and I personally use this site to purchase proof albums:

Great quality, fast delivery. Not sure how their pricing compares to other companies...

  I have my own business, and I order from Michel Company in Chicago. I think they are comparable to other companies. They will send you a catalog and a price sheet which you take 50% off the prices listed if you have a business. No sales tax either. Call for a catalog at 1-800-621-6649 or web site is Please tell them Anita from A.L.S. Photography in Pittsburgh recommended you. Thank You.
