Description

The course is aimed at passionate photographers who have some working knowledge of their camera and wish to take advantage of new web based self-publishing tools.  

Print-on-Demand services such as Blurb or Lulu, blogs or web-zines can, in some cases, circulate images more effectively than the traditional portfolio. 

The key feature of this course is that it offers the opportunity to reflect not only on the production of images, but also on how images can be used to create narratives, and reach a wider audience.  

The course will be taught through project work, lectures and practical workshops, offering continuous critiquing of the narrative potential of the participants’ images.  Examples will be shown from photobooks and websites that host photo-narrative work. 

Participants will:

Work towards the production of a personal narrative;
Learn to tell it with photography;
Learn to edit and structure images as consistent with each other;
Will be introduced to the design principles that can be applied to photobooks, ’zines and websites for self-publishing and self-promotion

This course could follow from any photography course and is for students who understand that they want to self-publish their photographic work as a book, zine, or website.

You will get the most from this course if you:
Have a photography project that they are working on and they would like to explore its narrative potential; 
Are passionate about telling and listening to stories
