About Lodima Press

Founded by Michael A. Smith to self-publish his first book, Landscapes 1975–1979, which was awarded Le Grand Prix du Livre (Best Photography Book of the Year) at the Rencontres de la Photographie (International Festival of Photography), Arles, France, in 1981. In the 34 years since, Lodima Press has come to be known for its unwavering dedication to reproductions of the highest quality (printing most books in 600-line screen quadtone), and publishing books of exquisite beauty by a number of leading and emerging photographers. We also provide consulting services for photographers seeking guidance in getting their work ready to submit for publication or to self-publish.
