Workshop: Editing and Bookmaking with Daniel Milnor and Sarah Leen 

Location: Menorca, Spain 
When: May 18-25, 2024
Jorge Delgado-Ureña and Guest Speaker 


Most photographers aspire to see their images as a book and there is no better feeling than having a photography project culminate in a beautiful physical object. Many aspects need to be considered when creating a book, from which photos to choose and how to create a coherent story, to how to sequence them and lay them out on the pages of your book.

This week-long workshop, hosted by The Raw Society in Menorca, Spain May 18-25, 2024 will guide participants through the process of creating your own book from an existing body of work.  With the mentoring and guidance of Daniel Milnor and Jorge Delgado-Ureña you will consider the many variables and steps it takes to create a photo book from which photos to choose and how to create a coherent story, how to sequence your images, the design, the typography and marketing. I, Sarah Leen, will join via Zoom to teach an editing masterclass. Please follow the link below for more information about this exceptional opportunity.

Nature Nurtures may be seen as a free-standing exhibition in Brooklyn Bridge Park during Photoville 2022, June 4-26. The exhibit features the work of 12 photographers who have documented how nature inspires and sustains them, brings solace to others, and is a powerful antidote to the stresses of contemporary life.

"During the isolation of the pandemic, it became clear to many that nature held a cure. Humans have recognized the healing effects of nature for centuries. In Japan, the government studied the therapeutic benefits of immersing ourselves in nature, which they called shinrin-yoku, or 'forest bathing.' Research has shown that regular exposure to nature can lower blood pressure, cortisol levels, anxiety, and can strengthen the immune system."

Elizabeth Krist: Your Work and Its Audience

Dates: October 18-24, 2020
Location:  NYC
Time: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Event: Workshop and Editing
Editing: Elizabeth Cheng Krist

In this workshop, participants will gain insights from a diverse range of industry experts on advancing their project towards targeted presentation. This includes researching your topic and finding its audience, working to edit a project to its strengths and present it to potential venues, publishers, and other constituencies.
 
Author, educator, and mentor Mary Virginia Swanson will be the lead faculty member, presenting a series of illustrated lectures that will broaden your industry awareness on a range of key issues. Topics discussed include the evolving editorial market, the challenges to the traditional gallery market, identifying new buyers for fine prints and licensing rights, understanding exhibition venues to maximize opportunities, and the role publications can play in promoting your work. Additionally, she will meet with each participant to help identify appropriate audiences for their work and discuss how to effectively market to them.

At the start of the workshop, Swanson will be joined by award-winning photo editor Elizabeth Krist for a 2-day editing session of students’ work. Through classroom talks and interactive demonstrations, you will learn the nuances of editing your photographs. Krist will work with each participant to edit images brought to the workshop, helping you to reveal the heart of your project.
