Boards.ie Book Launch

A number of club members have photos published in the upcoming 4th edition of the Boards.ie Photobook

Every year, the users from the photography forum on Boards.ie stick their heads and hands together to organize the annual Boards Photobook. The entire project is conducted online and is organized by volunteers from the forum.

The book showcases some of the finest photography work from both amateurs and professionals and will make a great Christmas present; as for each book sold, a charitable donation will be made to Santa Strike Force. The feelgood factor comes free!

Boards Photo Book launches at the Dublin Camera Gallery on Camden Street at 8pm on November 26th 2011.

All are welcome to come along to the launch and even buy a copy of the book – it’s all for a good cause.

Well done Ita

Congrats to club member Ita Boyle who’s photo has won the Autumn RTE Weather competition. Her photo will be seen after the 9pm news tomorrow night.

Photojournalism in the 21st century

Photojournalism is often described as a dead art.  But does the decline of newspapers necessarily mean the end for news photographers?  Kieran Dodds will share his experiences adapting the storytelling tradition to the new media landscape and consider how stills photographers are funding meaningful stories.

Kieran Dodds is a photographer specialising in photo stories based in Glasgow.

The event will take place on Friday 14th October from 7pm to 9pm in Dublin city centre. Registration will start from 6.30pm.
