Come to Gazebook Sicily. It's Next Week

So summer's over. Welcome back! I'll start slowly with a promotion for me because I ended with a promotion for me. I do need it. 

In truth, summer never got started in the UK (as you will see in my upcoming reviews of British seaside towns).  
Which is why I'm so happy to be going to Sicily next week for Gazebook.

 I'll be joining in with Alex from Akina who will be running an introductory workshop on photobooks of Friday 11th. 

It's 60 euros and you can get further information and book at

Here is the full brief for the workshop.

1-Full-Day workshop held by Alex Bocchetto (Co-Founder AKINA Books) in collaboration with Colin Pantall (UK).

It will be an introduction to photobooks' creative and post-production workflow, ideas, marketing, editing, production, audience, funding and marketing!

The workshop is addressed to anyone has an editorial photographic (and not only) ongoing project in mind. It will focus as well on how to work with small budget without compromise the quality. Indeed, the limits might even improve it!

Through case studies and debates, the workshop aims to be an introduction to the photobook as medium. The basis for an independent project development will be discussed as well. 
The main themes will be: production and printing, editing, funding, marketing, new tendencies in the photographic publishing.

Thanks for the Memories, Gazebook Sicily!

Gazebook was fantastic! If you don't know it, it's a festival that takes place in the small town of Punta Secca on the south ...
