    Ladies and gentlemen, the so much discussed and awaited book is here!

    It is more than two months ago when somebody mentioned, that it would be nice to print a collective book of our photographs. And because it was very good idea, we have started the project of the Boards.ie Photography Year Book 2008.

    At the very beginning of our discussion, somebody mentioned that we could raise some money for a charity. And it was even better idea. So, we were talking, typing, reading and talking and we eventually came with simple rules. You can have a picture in the book if you buy at least one copy of the book. And the price of each book will be increased by €5.00 for a charity.

    Looking for a charity was very simple. Most of the people on Boards.ie know the Santa Strike Force charity organized by DeVore. I don't have to mention that DeVore was pleased by the opportunity and he also submitted his picture into the book.

    And we have the book now. We have decided to use service Blurb.com because of their reliability and quality of prints. And you can order the book on their Internet page now.

    The direct link to the book is here:

    Please, feel free to order the book to have something nice, we have created here on voluntary bases and also to make the Christmas a little nicer for kids that are not so fortunate to have their own Santa.

    I would like to thank to all of you, who have survived all the threads discussing details of the book. My big thanks go to DeVore for his support and tolerance. And the biggest thanks go to whyulittle, who put the book together, insisted and insured the best technical details of our files and who kept our spirits high the closer was the deadline.

    Just saw the preview, looks cool! Some awesome photos in there already and I've only seen the first 15 pages.

    I almost don't want to look at the previews, might wait for the hardcopy!

    Good work everyone!


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 32,865 ✭✭✭✭MagicMarker

    I missed the making of this :(
    Are all of these in ireland ? (doubtful sinec there is a shot of the mediterranean)
    Are all of these irish photographers ?


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,155 ✭✭✭PopeBuckfastXVI


    Is teh SSF donation taken automagically by blurb, or is there another mechanism to make that donation?

    Great work guys, preview looks awesome \o/


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,878 ✭✭✭whyulittle


    The SSF donation is built into the price.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,699 ✭✭✭ThOnda


    Pictures in the book are from people on Boards.ie, worldwide. Age, race, sex or nationality are unimportant to know and had no role in this project. Well, I hope...

    The profit raising is set on Blurb, so whoever orders the book sends €5.00 to SSF.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,392 ✭✭✭AnCatDubh


    tis awesome folks - well done.


  • Registered Users Posts: 908 ✭✭✭fluffyVW


    Brilliant!!! The preview looks amazing!!! Can't wait to get my copy!!! :D:D:D

    Well done to everyone!!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,590 ✭✭✭Pigwidgeon


    brilliant ordering mine now!
    major thanks to thOnda and whyulittle for all you effort..

    just a thought, would we be able to get another sitewide announcement to say the book is on sale so more people can buy it, more money for ssf like.

    fvcking hell - the standard of the photos is excellent!!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,878 ✭✭✭whyulittle


    By the way, can I just say a big thanks to ThOnda for all his work on this.

    It's one thing having an idea, but without having someone to keep pushing this on, creating poll after poll ;), it would never have happened. So thanks to him.

    And thanks to everyone who submitted their pic. There are some fabulous shots in the book, with quality running right the way through.

    I know, am a bit embarassed by my entry now :eek: Can't wait to see what it looks like though.

    Well done to everyone who entered a photo, and a big thank you indeed to Thonda, DeV, and whyulittle for doing a great job in the book's organisation. A zen clap of acceptance for all :)


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 842 ✭✭✭Weidii


    Thank you so much to everyone who organised this, even though there were so many of us entering you managed to deal with the lot of us. Special thanks to Th0nda :)

    I must say, the standard of photography in the book is fantastic.


  • Registered Users Posts: 762 ✭✭✭Buzz Lightyear

    +1. Roll on next year.

    The presentation looks fab for the opening and the first 15 pages. Well done to all.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,570 ✭✭✭✭thebaz


    well done Thonda (and other organisers) - looks great (apart from that dodgy Belfast shot ;) )


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,699 ✭✭✭ThOnda


    If there wasn't whyulittle, the book would not be finished. He did the biggest amount of work.


  • Registered Users Posts: 519 ✭✭✭ThenComesDudley


    Well Done ThOnda and whyulittle and to everyone who supplied the photos, that preview looks amazing!

    I agree the previews are amazing. They look very professional. However i still can't wait to see what my very amateur pic looks like! And bring on boards year book 2009 I know that I will be aiming to be as good as the first 15 for it!! (will have to do alot more outings for practice!)

    Iv'e just ordered mine and now the waiting game begins. I want it now now now!!! The suspense is worse than waiting for christmas!

    Thansk to ThOnda, whyulittle, deVore, fionn and everyone else who put this great book together for such a great cause. Ye all should be very proud of what has been acomplished!!

    Thanks everyone! Great job!!!!!
