Photography and the print industry have a longstanding history of cultivating joy. An indescribable magic occurs when someone sees their photos printed in a book for the first time. The undeniable weight and physical presence or the intimate act of flipping page-by-page perhaps evokes emotion.
For many, printing a photography book feels like a fever dream. And yet these books are accessible now more than ever in the self-publishing world. Anyone can print a book and a successful one at that. This conversation will center around how to self-publish and print a photography book with Mixam.

Speaker Bio: Natalie Stellato
Italian-American photographer Natalie Stellato synthesizes her job in the print industry with her passion for self-publishing. Growing up in the Midwest, she spent many hours of her youth exploring desolate, liminal spaces left behind by the late-20th-century consumerism which dominated her exurban hometown. Exploring these spaces led Natalie to pick up a camera inadvertently as a form of documentation and self-exploration. At twenty, she self-published her first photography book.
She began work as a Mixam Print Specialist three weeks after graduating from Dominican University. When she's not reviewing files or helping customers with their book specs, Natalie works on her own creative projects. In 2021, she joined friends in a community-based art collective called Pink Slip Zine, which currently publishes the works of 50+ artists in a bi-annual print publication.
