Hb collab photobook vol. 1

November 04, 2010 @ 20:06:07
doap soap. im down to be in a group with vinbro. I like the idea of the book, but the only thing that I'm worried about is how this will be paid for.


same, thats why I was thinking of a blog. just do the whole thing for 6 months, and at the 6 month point have a vote for the best 25 shots and they go into the book or something to that effect
November 04, 2010 @ 22:00:06
Yeah great idea, with the blog we can all contribute and see what pics we are taking!
November 04, 2010 @ 22:35:45
we all sell a supreme tee and pitch in the money.....

since me and halfbreded live so close to each other maybe we could be in a "group" and take pictures of the same thing but from different angles to show how each photographer see things differently?

Word, that'll be dope if that's what you guys want to do. But, I don't think we should limit anyone to a theme or have boundaries. As corny as it may sound, I think our book would be the best if everyone tried aimed for the best shots no matter the scenario. From just skimming over the posters, I can see that we already have a shitload of talent and support, so if everyone just gave %120 we'll produce %120.

I already thought about the payment, if there is a group of 4, they can split payment 4 ways and and have money sent to a preferred person on a scheduled date. Now determining who those people may be is another task.

The minimum for a 80pg 10x8 hardcover landscape on blurb is $35 with the dust jacket or $37 for image wrapped. http://www.blurb.com/create/book/pricing#standard-landscape

We just need to find the average cost per person for 4 people and the amount of copies (how many books do we want?).

I would like to be in this if possible but I support this nonetheless. I definitely think a book is the way to go but as to organizing it, I have no opinion.

im down to pay for the books

we should have some guaranteed sales to our friends and family

My memory might be wrong, but isn't it possible to create and save books publicly on blurb? Thus making it possible for anyone who wants to go on the page and order one...

Yea Blurb give you the option to add the book on their webstore and people can order , They print them based on order so no stock needed.

Nah i'll toss you two into the list aswell. I wasn't trying to make anything official until we know for sure how many people are serious about this. Cause this isn't going to be some little petty 2 week escapade, I plan for it to be a dedicated project.

November 06, 2010 @ 20:35:22
Honestly koor I really wanted you to join, I actually want a few more photographers to join aswell (looking at you autobot_tom, flatland funk, yom). Like I said before, if we all give it our best, this shit will be miles beyond dope.
November 06, 2010 @ 22:28:26

November 06, 2010 @ 22:31:53

Alright so I was thinking about changing my spot from a photographer to an organizer since I'll be having exams and extra ciricculars and ship throughout the 6 month period and I'm not sure if I can keep up with the photos plus I don't think my skills are up to par as the others haha. What I can do though instead is just help out organizing all this with the others and etc. So yeah if anyone wants my spot, take it lol, is that alright?
November 06, 2010 @ 23:09:20
sounds good to me thus far. i think we should figure out where, what size, and how much this book is gonna be. Cause usually the more pictures added the more $ it will be.

We have 3 organizers and 16 photographers with 4 more available spots.

PRICING

Bare minimums

"Premium paper" selected

"Custom logo" selected

Both "custom logo" and "premium paper" selected

http://www.blurb.com/create/book/pricing#standard-landscape

Is everyone else good with a hardcover book?? I don't mind spending the extra few bucks for a hardcover imagewrapped book. We don't really NEED premium paper (wouldn't mind it though), but having a custom logo is the only way of not having a blurb logo on the cover. As of now, an 80pg book would suffice (16 photographers-->4 groups-->20 pictures per person)

Anyone else have any other ideas??
November 07, 2010 @ 11:27:30
I wouldn't mind being added to the photographers list too if nobody else wanna fill those spots and if you guys think my pictures are good enough.
The pricing is pretty good imo, Premium paper would be a good addition to it but has anyone print from blurb and seen the difference in person?
November 07, 2010 @ 12:30:57
can i join?
November 07, 2010 @ 12:56:27
I'd be down to be a part of this if there's still space. I can rep the MIA since i havent seen that many hb'ers from down here.
November 08, 2010 @ 01:01:51
Cool cool, if we get two more people tomorrow i'll be able to set up the groups, if not, the list above is final.
November 08, 2010 @ 01:59:55
What's good? I'd be down.

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 smokeyface. 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.)
