Course Description

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 also 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 and how to design and publish their photography portfolio. This course puts an end to the confusion and shares the proven, systematic technique from concept to coffee table album that I’ve used to self-publish more than 30 photo books. I take you through step-by-step using the self-publishing platform Blurb, which has a ton of gorgeous, downloadable templates that you can use to easily create a professional quality photo book.

You Will Learn

  • How to self-publish photo books that look like something you’d buy for your coffee table — and that you can distribute through Blurb, Amazon or Apple's iBook store if desired

  • Professional techniques for visual storytelling based on carefully sequenced images

  • The easy way: a fun and quick photo book design that takes images right from your social media feed with Blurb’s Bookify

  • The fancy way: a simple yet professional way to design and produce a stylish coffee table photobook with Blurb’s BookWright

“This is complete step by step course that takes you from beginning to print! I love all the details and information presented in this course, I stopped it several times to go back over the work. A lot is covered in this course, I was not able to do it in one sitting due to other obligations. If time is not an issue one can have a book done in a few hours!”

“After reading the title of this course, I thought it was not something that I would consider. After having gone through the first few lectures, I was so captured that I could not stop until I have gone through all the lectures. Again, Kasia's style of delivering is so engaging and makes something which I thought impossible so interesting that I cannot wait to start producing my own Photo Books. Thanks again Kasia for a fantastic course."”
