My colleague Darius Himes and I are busy preparing to teach a one-week workshop on publishing. It will be an in-depth look at the process of publishing a book of your photographs, from clarifying your concept, researching appropriate publishers, creating a publication proposal, and interpreting contracts. At that point, if you are not happy with the offer you may wish to consider self-publishing, so we will compare and contrast the issues surrounding ‘to be published or self-publish.’ Our lectures will then address the process of editing, design, pre-press… and creating a marketing strategy for your book, including planning for in-person and web launch, and related exhibition(s). We will combine classroom lectures with site visits to book publishers, editors, designers and book sellers, which the Santa Fe community is rich with. Lastly, each of the participants will have a consultation with Darius and myself to discuss their project. And, as is always the case with Santa Fe Workshops in the summer, we will have on campus a host of outstanding artists as faculty, including Sam Abell, Christopher James and Arthur Meyerson, all of whom will be giving lectures to the the entire community (faculty lectures on June 21 & 22 are free and open to the public).
If you hope for a book of your photographs in your career, join us!
Registration is limited to 14; several spaces remain open. Click here to register. Darius and I look forward to knowing you and your project better!
