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.
