On the surface this question might appear to have an obvious answer. I'm just not certain. Anyone can "publish" their portfolios onto their own sites, or any number of sites like APUG. I'm curious about these questions: Are book publishers doing fewer photo books? Are photogs as motivated to get a book publisher, now that they can put them on the web? Is the quality of web photo material equal to book photo material? Has the prestige of being published by traditional means been increased, or decreased, by web publishing?
