Okay, so Phyllis and I know something about creating, designing, writing, producing, packaging—and, yes, photographing—photography books. In my upcoming afternoon photography workshop on February 6, you don’t get Phyllis. But you do get me. And I’ll share the good, the bad, and the ugly: book proposals that have worked, and book projects that have flopped miserably. And explain why. And help you with your special project.
All this is a bargain at $95 in my opinion. Unless you have other plans for the weekend, like the Superbowl. In which case I can only surrender to unfair competition.
Here’s the official description:
This afternoon workshop is designed for those interested in creating and publishing books using their photographs, as well as those interested in online publication via photoblogging. Topics to be covered include the conventional publication process, finding an agent, marketing a book, existing and potential markets for photography books, photography book ideas that work, publication on demand, preparing photos for publication, and creating book designs. Special attention will be paid to editing a body of your work to create a successful photography book presentation. We’ll also take a look at online alternatives, and cover both the economics and technology of photoblogging.
