In this dynamic presentation, we will recreate an episode of the television program Shark Tank, in which we will examine the publication options for one photographer, on the verge of publishing a photography book. The tables are turned, and the "Shark" becomes the photographer, with investment money, and the "Entrepreneurs" are series of publishing industry models, presented in the first-person, as a business seeking investment by a photographer. Is it "the way publication is done now," or will this apples-to-apples on-stage comparison, where an artist deigns to discuss market capitalization for themselves, make one think twice before seeking publication?
