About This Class

In this course, you will learn the ins and outs of publishing your photography book. We will talk about traditional publishing, self-publishing and small-edition artist books. You will also learn the components of an effective book proposal to send to publishers.

This class is perfect for photographers at any level who are interested in creating a book of their work. For your class project, you will design a maquette (a mock-up) of your photography book.

Jennifer Schwartz's 10-part series on best practices for fine art photographers gives you the tools to take your fine art photography career by the reins and thoughtfully and purposefully develop a plan to get you where you want to go.  Learn how to tighten your work, develop your brand, identify goals and a plan for your photography, and strategically launch your project. Check out all the courses here.
