´╗┐Snap Collective is an innovative and unconventional publishing concept, founded by Dr. Philipp W. M├╝ller, specifically designed to help to bring to life portfolios of international photographers and artists. The idea behind Snap Collective is to give artists a possibility to publish a photo book or a portfolio of their work without enormous efforts, offering a streamlined platform with some of the best printing and distribution partners, support of a design team and more.

Snap Collective is a diligent, creative and motivated team that respect the artist's vision and ensure an efficient, high-quality publication. Every service offered starts with an oral exchange with the photographer.

Snap Collective works with the Print-on-Demand technology, which means there is no financial risk involved and that allows artists to print books as they're ordered. The artist also receives a substantial discount on all the purchases.

For each book project, Snap Collective first creates a book cover and together with the artist launchs a pre-order campaign to determine if the book has a potential.

The Pierrevert Photographic Nights festival offers the opportunity for author-photographers to show their work alongside big names in photography.

It was created under the leadership of St├ęphane Kossmann, professional photographer recognized for his portraits of stars and president of the association. He wanted to set up a special event around the eighth art in his adopted village, Pierrevert.

Over the years, the event has become more successful, judging not only by the growing participation of the public each year, but also by the quality of the jury's selections.

The richness of this festival is the spirit of conviviality and sharing which reigns there: the artists are warmly hosted by the Pierreverdants, the festival-goers can speak freely with the photographers, who, recognized or in the making, exchange their points of view.

Accessible to all and completely free, it has been running for 12 years thanks to the investment of many volunteers. Its aim is to lift the veil on the discovery of talents in new horizons while meeting the gaze of the greats of the eighth art.
