Okay so I went ahead and made an (un)official grouping of the team. I simply organized them alphabetically and did an ABCD pairing. Hope everyone is cool with it.GROUP A
365hustle (sorry bro you were the 21st
person, if someone drops out you're first in line for the spot)
So now its 4 photos per person @ ~$53 per book?? (if we have a matte finish / logo)
Damn steep price, but please do excuse the complaining from the (broke-ish) student that I am. haha
Anyways, still willing to participate. But I'm still a little clueless in how this would work. I'm just wondering what the rundown of this book would be like. As of now, from what I'm reading, it's a "shoot w/e you want" type concept?? And are we planning on "selling" this book?? Or is it more so a project for artists to just get together and create?? (And we each buy our own copy just for keepsake?? )
Thanks for setting everything up and organizing everything Shanklin. Lots of talented photographers on here, so great idea for putting everyone's works together.
It's 20 pages per person, and I think it's slightly expensive as well, but being that this is HB, where we notoriously drop 100's on kicks and denim, it's possible we could scrap up a few bucks
. On the good side, I think releasing the books quarterly (A: 1st quarter, B: 2nd, C: 3rd, and D: 4th) will definitely make paying easier (save $1 a day and it's paid for in two months) as well as giving each group adequate time to get the illest pictures. Now note, I just read that the book prices do NOT include shipping, so to the international crowd, beware of shipment rape.
Yeah the concept is basically shoot what you want, but you also have other members of your group who you can work with. As for selling our book, I heard blurb's open marketplace is pretty decent and anyone can buy your book as they please. But i'm down for making few bucks lol, if anyone knows a legitimate publisher, please do not be shy.
(P.S. theres no way in hell I could take all the credit for this, me and andy had an idea, and with the help of everyone else we can make it happen.)
