Ebooks are a photographer's dream. Easy to create and publish, they provide a simple and inexpensive way for you to share your images with the public and generate some revenue at the same time. Follow along with veteran photographer Mikkel Aaland in this course as he turns his book County Fair Portraits, published in 1981, into an ebook. Along the way learn how to select, organize, and process your images with the EPUB format in mind, how to lay out and design your book, and how to prepare it for the appropriate ebook format. Plus, see how to set up publishing relationships with Amazon and other online retailers to distribute and sell your finished product.
(music playing) In my experience, photographers are always looking for new ways to share their work, and generate new revenue streams. With the explosions of ereaders such as the iPad, Nook, Kindle, and the Sony e-reader, a new publishing platform has emerged. Now, pro photographers can publish their own photographic ePub books, and share in an ever-growing revenue stream. In this workshop, I'll take you step by step through the process of selecting, organizing, and processing your images with ePub books in mind. Then I'll show you how to layout and design your book and prepare it for the appropriate ebook format.
Finally, I'll show you how to set up a publishing relationship with Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Google Books, and Apple Books, to distribute and sell your finished product. I'll use one of my own traditional books, County Fair Portraits, published in 1981, as a real world case study for this course. At he end of the course it's my hope that you too will be able to re-purpose or create from scratch material that will give you both aesthetic satisfaction and income.
