Photato Salad Partie Quatre

Photato Salad is a Philadelphia Glamour Photography Group yearly event for those who can attend, and this year is the fourth installment (part 4...aka partie quatre...). We will be returning to Ridley Creek State Park one more time, as they have much room for us to roam about. A large pavilion is now reserved (#14), so this event is rain or shine. As with the past Photato Salads, this is a free event for everyone, but a food dish is required. As folks RSVP for the event (models, photographers, makeup artists, etc can RSVP), they can list what food dish they are bringing, so that we don’t have 38 pounds of potato salad or such on hand. You can bring as many guests, pet rocks, stray wheels, props, as you like, just please include an accurate number in your RSVP. There will be a sign-in sheet for when you arrive. There will also be a raffle opportunity for some interesting prizes, and as with all the PGPG events, other perks are in development. We will have an official meeting time at 11am to kick off the event (introductions, need to know's, but you can arrive early, hence the 9am reference in the site), and after that, you are free to roam about and make photographic history. Please try to mix up your models and photographers, so that folks get a chance to network and grow their portfolios. The mansion is nearby for outside shots, and the stables are nearby for scenic appeal. The creek is a great place to get some water shots, and there are many trails throughout the area.

Some additional notes for the event:

-if everyone brings a food dish, we can feed everyone, with plenty of leftovers. Please note your food dish when you RSVP, or in the comment section.

-attending models will be featured in the listing (see below), so if you are modeling, please advise in your RSVP that you are doing so. Please have a good jpeg there so that we can feature you in the listing, along with any Model Mayhem url or portfolio url you wish to advertise. Remember, MANY people watch this group beyond the immediate area, so being featured is a great way of boosting your web traffic.

-makeup artists that would like to be on hand performing your mua magic, please feel free to do so. Models will be advised to pay you directly for any services needed.

-photographers, you will have much area explore. There are many little details yet in the works, and those will be updated as the event gets closer. Note, the pavilion does not have electricity, but you can bring any gear you want. Just know that we are all hobbyists on that day, if asked. Try to mix up your models, so that you all get variety. Any props are encouraged, except for weapon props (just to avoid issues).

-we will be planting a memorial tree in honor of Joe Burke; more details on this as we get close to the event.

-print this map prior to driving out to the park:

-links to review before driving out to the park (much to see/do/think about):

Attending Models.....

Meetup.com yet again changed the settings in the site without checking with the organizers, and as a result, we can't edit the photo sizes. So...included below are sample shots of the models attending Photato Salad Part 4. You won't be disappointed with the model selection, as there will be many more yet to add.

      September 5, 2013

    • Richard N.

      Found the word upload on the right, (duh..that was pretty easy)but can you open multiple files and all be download that were chosen or must this be one at a time? Need advice, as my uploads stopped after a few, and now says "processing...may take more than a few moments" and the album is full.

    As mentioned on Sunday, this is the one event that I can't do a post event doc for; too many people. All participants should be members, so please continue to use the group site to start your contacting. Tagging photos always helps with identifying folks.

    I met 2 photographers for the first time at this shoot, that I can't seem to find at all on here or on facebook. Their names were Pat & Burt...I haven't seen any of the pictures from them surface. Can anyone help me find out who they are or where to get in touch with them.

    http://www.the-whitetail-deer.com/whitetail-deer-fawns.html.....I think John is a John and not Joan, but I didn't take the time to really check. Our little visitor did have two dark spots on the top of its head, which at first lead me to think it was a male. If anyone has further proof, please feel free to share. I just hope it doesn't eat the tree we planted.

      That's partly why this group is something that would be tough to give up on. Too many good people to know, things to do, photos to create, and experiences to be had.

  • Melissa B.

    Of course I worried about the fawn all night, so I called the park this morning. They passed me off to the PA State Game Commission (which is ironically located about 10 minutes from my house in the Reading area). The warden assured me that mom was nearby and probably too distracted by the crowd to come out. However if she felt her baby was in distress, I'm sure she would have made her presence known. Deer normally feed early morning or late in the day. Babies usually bed down during the day while mom goes out to forage. But I think this little guy was just too curious to see what was going on and had to come out and say hello.

    7 · August 26, 2013

    • Valerie S.

      Was the thrill of my life, I only hope that touching this little girl won't make the mom Abandon her

      2 · August 26, 2013

    • Melissa B.

      Valerie, touching an animal will not make the mother abandon it. I think that's an old wives tale that moms made up to keep their kids away from wild animals. It's still a good idea to leave wild creatures be, but that fawn was just too darned cute.
