If your question relates to any other type of book proposal, please contact editor@farcountrypress.com.

Note that when we decide to add a new book to one of our existing series of books, we solicit submissions from photographers in our database, then select the best photographer for that particular project. If you propose adding a new book to one of our existing series, we do not consider this an original proposal.

If you would like to be added to our database of photographers and be considered in future Farcountry Press calls for submission, send your stock list (and/or the URL of your website) to photoeditor@farcountrypress.com.

Thank you for your interest in Farcountry Press!
