stein workshop 


Have you ever thought about publishing a book of photographs? Maybe you have a concept in mind or a body of work to support your concept. Maybe you have only a vague idea for a photobook. Or maybe you have a "someday" wish to do a book but no real project yet. This workshop will help you shape your ideas, conceive and explore a concept, and determine the best approach to make a publisher take notice. Harvey Stein offers a nuts-and-bolts analysis of the steps necessary to contact publishers successfully and what to do when they say yes.


Topics covered include: 
      * generating book ideas 
      * writing the book proposal 
      * identifying potential publishers 
      * criteria publishers use to evaluate proposals 
      * what to present to the publisher (and in what form) 
      * when to create a book dummy 
      * the pros and cons of using a book agent 
      * ways to sequence the photographs 
      * negotiating the contract to maximize advances and royalties 
      * working with printers 
      * book distribution
