This April, Blurb will participate in two seminars at Connect 08, the Palm Springs Photo Festival in California. The festival is tailored to serious photographers who want to network with the photography world’s top creatives and innovators. We hope to see some of you there under the desert sun.
THE PHOTOGRAPHIC BOOK: EDITING, SEQUENCING, DESIGNING, PRODUCING, AND MARKETING YOUR WORK IN PRINT is an in-depth, 5-hour-long seminar about the various elements of bookmaking and production. We’ll discuss how to get started, the steps to take, and your options for getting a book into production. Designers and published photographers will be speaking.
April 2, 2008 from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Cost: Free for Connect 08 attendees
GETTING YOUR PHOTOBOOK PUBLISHED explains what makes a photography book successful. Understand how a book would meet your needs and expectations in terms of promoting yourself. Find out what the alternatives are, learn how to begin the process, understand what publishers are looking for, and how to approach them. There is no better way to get known, earn respect for your work, and open new doors than a book of your photography.
April 2, 2008 from 2:15 p.m. – 4:15 p.m.
If you’d like to meet with pro photographers, magazine editors, museum curators, gallery directors, art directors, and photography educators, then Connect 08 is for you. Who cares if the mean temperature at that time is around 90 degrees – you’ll be inside. With air conditioning. Plus, who can pass up the opportunity to meet up with the Blurberati in person.
