What you'll learn in this more photography class:

Have you thought that you’d like to publish a photo book? Maybe you have a concept in mind. Or a body of work to support your concept. Or you have only a vague idea. Or a “someday” wish to do a book but no real project yet. Harvey Stein will offer a way to shape your ideas, to conceive and explore your concept and to determine the approach that will make a publisher take notice.

This seven-week workshop is a nuts and bolts exploration of the steps necessary to successfully approach publishers and what to do when they say yes. Topics covered include: generating book ideas, writing the book proposal, identifying potential publishers for your book, publisher’s criteria for evaluating proposals, what to present to the publisher (and in what form), the pros and cons of using a book agent, ways of sequencing the photographs, negotiating the contract, maximizing advances and royalties, working with printers, and book distribution and sales. Finally, the effect of the digital revolution on making books will be discussed.

Considerable time will be spent evaluating each participant’s book project in the light of the information disseminated during the class. This seminar is for those who are just beginning to think about arranging their images into book form to those who have completed their projects but are not sure how to approach publishers.

A link for the Zoom class meeting will be emailed to the attendees prior to the start date.
