Medium Festival – Developing a Creative Photo Book

I will be leading a two-day book design workshop in San Diego with the Medium Festival:

This two-day Workshop is an opportunity for artists and photographers currently working on or planning to start a project that will result in a book publication. Whether you plan to make book submissions to a publisher or self-publish your artist book, this workshop is meant to help you create a book that meets your vision.

The goal of this workshop is to discuss each photographer’s vision, mission and objectives for the publication of a photographic project and then to gain an understanding of how these conceptual aspects translate into a book object. Fundamental to the book development process is learning aspects of the editing, sequencing of the body of photographs and in the context of a book design to shape and narrate a story. The purpose of this workshop is to provide photographers with the building blocks to move from a complex unorganized mass of images into a refined edit and subsequently sequence to create a pre-visualization of their book concept.

Space is limited. Time to register is now.

Workshop: March 23 – 24, 2019, 9am – 4pm

Location: Lafayette Hotel & Swim Club

Address: 2223 El Cajon Blvd. San Diego, CA 92104

Let me know if you have any questions about either of these two events.

Cheers!

Douglas
