Turn dreams of a published photography book into affordable reality. Whether for an intimate friend-and-family distribution of 10, or 100, or 1,000 and more, I’ll show how to build on your existing skills in capture, edit, and layout to create a legacy that is also very salable—as well as augmenting reputation and opening possibilities for gallery exhibitions and talks. The publishing world has shifted to a majority of independent publishing. Arts, poetry, memoir, and hybrid content image and text books are all experiencing an upswing in readership and buying. Previously the effort typically encountered in technical aspects, but also including concept development and production, and sales and distribution were a bit daunting. All will be demystified in this class with interactive worksheets, numerous tips, and sources for choosing the right printer and distributor to have everything “your way.” Projects at any stage of development welcome.
Course Items: Participants should have elements of a potential project—whether art, poetry, prose or hybrid—and be willing to describe, show and discuss theme, text, titling, potential market audience. Wish planning is fine. Recommended (not required) text Publish Your Photography Book by Mary Virginia Swanson. Many PDFs will be uploaded in advance to participants.
