WRITING FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS

ONE-DAY WORKSHOP

April 28th, 2018

 

With B&W Photography magazine editor Elizabeth Roberts

 

Time: Saturday. 10.00 – 5.00

Location: Envisage Books Home Studio

Cost: £135 including, lunch and refreshments

 

Limited to six places

 

I love writing for B&W Photography magazine (although I could do without the deadlines!) and I especially love working with Elizabeth. Not only is she a great editor, she also happens to be a fully trained and highly experienced creative writing teacher.

 

For this workshop, her emphasis will be on writing for your own self-published photobooks,

e.g. clarifying the concept/title, writing an introduction and/or short essay, plus captions.

 

To get the maximum benefit from this workshop, which includes Elizabeth's advice on developing your own unique form of writing, you are encouraged to bring a project you are working on.

HAND-SEWN PHOTOBOOK MAKING

ONE-DAY WORKSHOP

May 12th, 2018

 

With professional photobook maker Eddie Ephraums

 

Time: Saturday. 10.00 – 5.00

Location: Envisage Books Home Studio

Cost: £135 including all materials, lunch and refreshments

 

Limited to five places

 

In this small group workshop you will learn how to create two types of beautiful, simple to make, hand-sewn, inkjet printed books.

 

The easiest to make is a 3-hole sewn book, comprising a single section of several folded and gathered printed sheets, bound with a single thread. The other method we will cover is the Japanese side-sewn/stab-sewn process. All the stages of each process will be covered, from concept to print, including picture editing/sequencing and sewing, with

plenty of time for discussion.

 

Of particular benefit is the opportunity to learn about picture sequencing in relation to

the concept of your sewn book.

 

During the workshop you will make your own books, with your own images, using readily available tools, materials and simple technique, so you can repeat the process at home.

 

You'll need to bring a selection of approximately 15 high resolution jpeg images we can

edit, sequence and print.

CONCERTINA FOLDOUT BOOK MAKING

LONDON

June 9th, 2018

 

With professional photobook maker Eddie Ephraums

 

Time: Saturday. 10.00 – 5.00

Location: my NW London home studio

Cost: £135 including all materials, lunch and refreshments

 

Limited to five places

 

In this small group workshop you will learn how to make inkjet printed concertina books, folded and bound in a variety of ways.

 

As with the stitch/sewn book workshop, all the stages of the process will be covered, from concept to print, including picture editing/sequencing, design, printing and binding, with plenty of time for discussion. The picture sequencing tends to work slightly differently for a concertina book,

as the book can be viewed either as double page spreads, or as a combination of spreads,

or as the book as a whole.

 

During the workshop you'll make your own foldout book, based on your images, using readily available tools, materials and simple technique, so you can repeat the process at home. Time permitting, you will learn how to create an easy-to-make, slipcase/sleeve.

 

You'll need to bring a selection of approximately 15 high resolution jpeg images we can

edit and sequence.
