A great photography book is far more than just a collection of photographs.
Photographers now have the ability to easily and cost-effectively design and publish their own books. With slight changes in intention and design, a modern book can take on many forms, including portfolio, catalog, promotional publication or a marketing piece. These books require fundamental skills like editing, sequencing, design and typography, but books also require answering a few basic questions before the photographer even begins the creation process: What is the goal of the book? Who is the audience and how will be the book be presented and delivered? What is the difference between a book and a portfolio? Photographer Dan Milnor will address these questions as well as the variety of options offered within the Blurb bookmaking platform.
