Online Learning Class via Zoom
The book is the primary format for photographers to present their narrative and ideas with complete autonomy. This class will discuss how to edit and sequence images, the relationship between page spreads and rhythm, how to think about text and titles, the book as an object, finding an audience, marketing, pricing and distribution, self-publishing vs publisher, what to look for in a publisher. Participants will gain insights into developing and publishing a photo book and the tools needed to create a book that is fluid, complex and conceptually sound. Participating photographers should have 20-30 images that will be shared with the group in the second class.
