Historical Houston Graveyards

This will be phase one of the Historical Houston Graveyards shoot. We will meet up around 1:30pm over coffee with a brief discussion on this shoot & any other ideas for RENEGADE PHOTOGRAPHERS shoots.

We can take off around 2:15 or so to a local graveyard I have picked out to kind of scout it out in groups of 3-4. We have to stay a bit low key on this - and play it by ear. Officially reservations are required for group visits- so we will have to show respect. So officially we are scouting the location for a future shoot- but I am quite sure we get in a few photos too. We want to do our best to be inconspicuous for the most part- surely show respect for others. Be on your best behavior.

We can hit one more graveyard a little less restrictive if some folks are up to it. Very open to suggestions for other sites to visit in the future.

PLEASE UPDATE YOUR RSVP IF YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ATTEND

    Thanks guys for a lovely day. The photos everyone captured are so beautiful. I'll try to get a few of mine up as well. Now, we should plan our Galveston cemetery walk (but not too early in the morning)!

    Olivewood Cemetery was really interesting.

    This was a great day. Meeting nice people, being outdoors and exploring some fascinating history at the two cemeteries made the day go by too quickly. I am looking forward to the next opportunity. Thanks for setting this meetup up!

    I had a great time. It was even more interesting than I had anticipated. I would like to do some more shoots like this on a somewhat regular basis- every month or 2 if folks are interested. A few have already expressed interest. Thanks to all those who participated and made it a great time.

    Just posted an info sheet on Historical Houston Cemeteries in our FILE section for the group. At top of page - Under RENEGADE PHOTOGRAPHY click on MORE and then FILES to access this document. It includes some info on Houston Cemeteries in the HEIGHTS and MONTROSE area along with addresses. Just a one page rough unedited compilation with some basic info. Hopefully we can hit a few of them tomorrow in small groups.

    Starbucks store entrance actually on YALE ST. - JUST across bayou from I-10 - On your Left as you approach the new Walmart on Yale. (Drive thru entrance on Heights Blvd side) Ph. [masked] They should have a spot set up near door for us.

    Gary, hey bud. Did you guys talk to Glenwood? They really tightened up on photogs because groups kept showing up unannounced and trying to do model shoots. They haven't banned groups yet, so hopefully you guys got permission to go out there. It's really easy to get permission, just shoot them an email. But they will get cranky if you just show up or try to use it as a model shoot. Would hate for them to change their photog policies and ban all groups/photogs. :/

    January 5, 2013

    • Gary S.

      Yes I have talked with them. I am aware of their rules & I have planned accordingly. We are meeting at Starbucks- then splitting into small groups to scout several different locations. I dont plan on ruffling any feathers at any of these place & do not think we will. Thanks for the heads up though.

      Ah, that's good news. All the groups like going there once a year or so. Cool place to shoot. Their rules seem restrictive (not being allowed to walk in certain places etc). But just about everyone who visits gets outstanding images even with the restrictions. Have a good time!

      January 5, 2013

  • Gary S.

    Would like to have some alternate choices - so I encourage all to do a little research if you can & bring some info on some other interesting Houston cemeteries. Plenty of interesting places in the area. Would be nice to have a few printouts or something with info on the places. We can talk about having one or two shoots a month to visit all the different places. Up to the group where we go with this project. We can also discuss the HOUSTON HIGHWAYS project if anyone has interest.

    I am really psyched about all the interest in this shoot. If you cannot make this one please change your RSVP to make room. We will surely have more events coming up. This is more of a dry run site inspection. Just starting to research & lots of info out there on Historical Houston grave sites. I am compiling info as I go for future use, Here is another link to a cool site. http://www.cemeteries-of-tx.com/ Check this one out and see what other info you can find on the subject.

    is this a paranormal shoot taking pictures of ghosts? or is this going to be models present? just curious im open for both actually

    January 1, 2013

    • Gary S.

      Focus was originally not really intended on either - Models are ok with me, and if you can get a shot of a ghost who am I to argue. I want to see it too. (<: We can talk more at the meetup on Sun. A lot depends on what group wants- don't want to place too many restrictions either. IMHO there are lots of fashion shoots already out there. I like to dabble some there too- but not my forte. Open for discussion though.

      January 2, 2013

  • Gary S.

    I scheduled a discussion & scouting meetup for this Sun. - I know it is short notice & some will not be able to make it. I figure while interest is high we might as well get together to discuss a few things- and do a visit to one or 2 sites. Then we can reqroup- do a little more research- & make plans a future shoot.
