About This Class
Is making your own beautifully designed photo book a dream of yours? There is no better way to present your portfolio in a professional manner and archive your best work.
But for most people that’s where the dream ends. They don’t know where to begin, how to edit their work, how to design and publish their photography portfolio.
This course puts an end to the confusion and shares the proven, systematic way to take a photo book from an idea to an amazing coffee table album.
I’ve done it myself - I have designed and published over 30 books, many of them using the self publishing platform - Blurb for my clients and as my photography portfolio. You can do it too! We’ll walk through step-by-step what’s required to get your photo book published with Blurb, starting from the ground level and working towards our goal.
I'm providing you with set of free, high quality materials to work with. You can start right away without any preparations! The supporting materials consist as well of 7 free Photoshop Actionsthat may be useful when you start working on your own photos and would like to unify their look to have consistent material throught the whole photo book.
Join me in this course and make your own unique book today!
