An Informational Seminar on Self-Publishing Digital Books

One of the newest ways available to show work, build clientele or pass along ideas is also one of the oldest- get it in print! With the appearance of inexpensive digital printing, coupled with on-line distribution, sharing is now cheaper, easier and of much higher quality. The promised threshold of ease and excellence has been achieved. It is now time for all of us to begin printing digital books, or at least understand what the buzz is about before making the plunge.

This one-day (9am-5pm) seminar brings together artists, publishers, editors, bookstore owners, artistic directors and others- to provide a comprehensive and rich overview of how to get your photographs self-published digitally.

Illustrated slide presentations, discussions and an extended hands on ‘show and tell’ of printed works will give you the opportunity to learn from those that are already producing books in digital form.

Meant for all levels of experience and all types of photography.
