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 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. You can start right away with Blurb’s professional downloadable templates for books and magazines. Check out some inspiring examples at their beautifully crafted website www.blurb.com

What current students are saying about the course

“Excellent course! After this course I was able to work with Bookwright and create my own photo book. Couldn't be more pleased with the course. Thank you!”

Debbie Morrison Debbie Morrison

“Blends the technical controls with the aesthetics of design and sequencing.”

James B Kelly James B Kelly

“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!”

Janelle HarveyJanelle Harvey

“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."”
