It is the first time I am using beamer and I am trying to make a title page as I would do in a book class, but apparently beamer forces its own title page to be printed before mine. I have no \author or \title specified, so basically it just prints a blank page with \today.

I nested my title page within \begin{titlepage} and \end{titlepage} as I would do in any other document class. A MWE is the following:

My title page

How can I force beamer to print only my title page?

Just don't use \begin{titlepage} ... \end{titlepage} if you don't want beamers title page - does that help? (Use \begin{frame} ... \end{frame} instead.) – Hendrik Vogt Mar 15 '13 at 16:03
@HendrikVogt I am stunned, it works! Was it that simple? Thank you for your comment, why don't you post it as an answer so that I can close the question? – AndreasT Mar 15 '13 at 16:08

If you don't want beamers title page at all, don't use the titlepage environment. You can design your own titlepage in a separate frame:

My title page
