Camaro5 Fest II Book
 
My fellow Camaro5 brethern...:drinking: The book is done. :confused0068:
I have put so much time and effort into this one. It took a little longer than I thought it would, but it's always better to try to make it 'almost' perfect and not to rush it out with a lot of "what if's."

*********************************
I received an email from a friend of mine that blurb has a 20% discount code:
Try using: ADBLURB at checkout to get 20% off.
I'm not 100% that it will work, but I think it's worth a shot.
I've already ordered my books or I would try it. :mad0259:

There were some struggles and a lot of waiting, but we all came together and finally knocked it out! I am proud to present the new 2011 Camaro5 Fest II Book!

There are 5 choices this year!!! :w00t:


The first 3 choices are a bit smaller book, but still an awesome sized book at 10"x8".

Click here to order the 10"x8":
http://www.blurb.com/books/2182089
  • Softcover US $65.00
  • Hardcover, Dust Jacket US $70.00
  • Hardcover, ImageWrap US $75.00


The Second two choices mimic the larger size that we all loved so much last year at 13"x11"!

Click here to order the 13"x11":
http://www.blurb.com/books/2182204
  • Hardcover, Dust Jacket US $125.00
  • Hardcover, ImageWrap US $130.00








As you can see, the books are virtually the same except for some small things which were either added or changed because of image quality issues at a larger size print.

Regardless, both sizes are awesome and there are darn near 200 pages of Camaros for you to lust over... or maybe just share with friends :)

Anways.... I'm so glad to be handing this over to you, the forum members. I'm going to take a few weeks off before I shoot again. Feel free to contact me if you would like your car shot or if you have an event that you need covered. I'll see if I can come out of my self-imposed retirement to shoot one more kick-a$$ car show or event. :)

All the best John (johndawg)

Ladies and Gentlemen...

Thanks to EVERYONE that uploaded pics!!!

You guys sure created a lot more work for me and I APPRECIATE it!!! Thank you for making it "your" book again this year!


I'm please to announce that we will be at the 2011 Camaro5 Fest to shoot photos of all your favorite cars and build another book! :happyanim:

We had a lot of fun last year meeting "most of all" of you and you guys made the book a tremendous success. So, we are back for round two.

I'm flying out to AZ with two photographers to cover the event. These aren't just two point and shoot guys. These guys know how to shoot cars!
Make sure you look for one of us so we can shoot your car to get it in the book!
We will be wearing our red & black shirts with this logo on it.

Very cool

CruznSS 03-18-2011 12:15 AM

Suggestion for book - get pics of owners, camaro, & screen name. Could take pics of group members as they enter. Parade lap / photo op on road course. Pics at hotel & after party. Oh, get pics from groups driving to fest. Coming from all 4 corners of USA. Just some ideas to toss around for book.

I'll take one... ;) Okay, more than one... :thumbsup:

SSE 4 2SS 03-18-2011 04:18 AM

Sign me up for at least one...

Char1ieone 03-18-2011 12:49 PM

I am totally up for one! I never was able to get a glance at last years I was not able to partake in it so I am sorry im asking for things that were done last year but here we go. I would like to be able to see caravan photos to Phoenix, group shots of owners and their cars like a group shot of the Transformers editions in one shot for example, people working/installing parts on their cars, owner shot with their car, member forum names with shots. Sorry but like you said, its MY yearbook haha. Could you maybe put up some screenshots of what was on the book last year too?

I can't wait either! I think the backdrop is going to make for some seriously awesome pics!

Thanks for the suggestions!

I think we can do all-the-above or at least give it our best shot :)

I will open up the book to folks that send in their personal shots as well. We did that last year with some awesome results. You can preview the book from last year by clicking here:
http://www.blurb.com/books/1384939

As you might see in the preview... there are forum member names on some of the pictures. Those are the pics that people took and uploaded.
It would be very difficult to match forum names to their pictures are there will probably be over 500 cars and a thousand people there... plus we'll be taking about 5K+ pictures, but we'll do the best we can. :)

John

Can't wait! Would love to see the cover have the same design as the circle 5 logo for the fest with the flames. That would look wicked sitting on any coffee table :D

Merc 03-21-2011 02:43 PM

I'm in again this year.

:thumbsup:

They will be up on blurb.com about 3 weeks after the show. I asked Blurb, but they don't allow pre-orders. :(

hrpiii 03-21-2011 02:55 PM

great job on the book last year, and can wait to see this years book with so many more attending!!!
