Waiting For You by Charlene Liska

You know that photo book you’ve been planning to create but haven’t actually made yet? Here’s your chance to get it done now at the A&I Books workshop. This event will empower photographers to build their portfolios, produce a book from a select body of work, or create a monograph based upon a finished photo project.

We ask that only serious photographers take advantage of this unique workshop where you will have the opportunity to turn your work into a beautifully printed book. Attendees will need to create a design on their laptops using A&I’s free BookCreator software and bring it to the event in order to take advantage of this workshop. Download the software in advance and get started on an 8 x 8 soft cover format book, up to 40 pages. Use available templates or create an original design for your book, and insert your text. Don’t worry about your work being perfect. A&I Books Publisher/Editor Rex Weiner will be on hand to review your book, help edit and place your images, critique your design and give you tips on how to maximize the value of your print-on-demand book through smart marketing and PR.

Details

  • Skill Level: Basic, Intermediate, And Advanced
