Ann Arbor Street Art Fair- The Original / street photography and photowalk

If you don't know this week is the Ann Arbor Art/Street Fair-The Original.
There are 4 Art fairs going on Starting Wednesday and ending Saturday at 6pm.
I am the OFFICIAL PHOTOGRAPHER for the Original Street fair and this will be my 5th year with them. I m also the Photographer for the Townie Street party this Monday night if you want to join me for that starting at 5pm same location.


I am offering a photowalk for our members Friday afternoon focusing on street photography. There are plenty of children's activities,face painting,children's art fair,music and general family fun all around!!
My position for the event is to capture the public interacting with the artist,shopping and crowds.The Original Street Fair uses my images on there website and internet for promotional purposes.
I am offering the opportunity to have your images published on there site with photo credit (I have control on what images are used).
There are some rules to capturing the artist and there work and also protocol on what and were you can shoot. I will have a short orientation before we go out shooting.
WE WILL MEET BETWEEN 4-5pm FRIDAY AT THE CLOCK TOWER LOCATED ON CENTRAL CAMPUS (you cant miss it its the big tower with the clock).
YOU HAVE TO HAVE A NAME TAG/PASS VISIBLE so the artist and public know who you are and what you are shooting (some artist are very leery of having there image and images of there work photographed).
This walk will be limited to 20 photogs if you RSVP YOU MUST SHOW UP!!!! I have to print name tags and passes for each attendee.


If you do RSVP and don't show up without letting the group know that will be held against your attendance record (yes meetup tracks that)
We have been having too many no shows on RSVP's and I have to start a No SHOW POLICY!!!
The Original Street Fair is located at Ingalls Mall (the U of M clock tower) on U of M campus,covering North University and Washington Street,see map above.
I am charging $5.00 for this event to cover printing cost of the name tags and passes (you can pay when you show up).

Parking can be difficult do to the numbers of people visiting the fair. Most people shuttle in from Briarwood Mall,shuttles run every 15 minutes.Or you can park at my house and walk 1 mile.

Thank you and looking forward to seeing you there.

Call me with any questions...

      My apologies Jamie for not responding to your offer to change driving routes for me Jamie.
      Had a little health issue with my dog. He should be okay, but I think I will drive myself just in case my kids have a problem with him and need me home earlier. Thanks so much for the offer. Looking forward to this!

    Tom, how much room do you have to park at your house and where is it located? You can message me if you don't want to post the address. Thanks!

    There's a website for reserving a parking space in the structures. A little pricey, but convenient. http://www.parknparty.com/?module=Page&sID=art-fair-parking&utm_source=ArtFairCalendarSite&utm_medium=ButtonAd&utm_campaign=2014ArtFair
