Self-Publishing Your Photography Book Workshop with Elizabeth Avedon

9-3p, with lunch, R.F. Strickland Building, Concord, Georgia

Please see Elizabeth’s bio on the Bios page.

There is a rich history of self-published authors including Edgar Allen Poe, Ernest Hemingway, Stephen King and Mark Twain. Now that artists are able to produce their own hardcover and softcover books online at a relatively low cost, self-publishing has become a popular alternative for photographers. 

Self-Publishing Your Photography Book will cover the basic principles of designing your own photography book. Drawing on over thirty years of experience, Elizabeth will demonstrate the bones of a successful photography book including; interior design decisions, sequencing, typography (Serif vs Sans Serif) and cover design. We will explore what comprises good design from bad, creating a framework for the participant to build upon with their own book project, and briefly discuss the self-publishing companies available.

Each participant should bring 10, maximum of 12, related images for sequencing and discussion of design considerations. We will work together and as a group to evolve each of your individual projects and expression. (Bring only inexpensive copies we can tack on the wall, no delicate final prints, 12 max) and 1 photography book whose design or layout you admire (optional)

We will not cover technical questions (pdf-to-book workflow) or software questions. 

Workshop Only: $350

Book Workshop Package: $450*

Package for Two: (one ticket to Book Workshop included) $575*

*includes Friday evening Collector’s Soiree, Self-Publishing Your Photography Book Workshop during the day Saturday, the SlowExposures Ball on Saturday evening, and the Lunch and Learn photo slide show on Sunday after the Juror’s Talk


artholes_______discovering new artists

Syd who runs Woom, has been working on a new project:

Frequently blown away by the work of new and emerging artists from all over the world, art holes is where he shares his discoveries.

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.”
