Photiesta, the First
July’s event for the PGPG is the first of an occasional series of photo shoot/house party events. To kick off this run, we will be using an excellent residence in the West Chester area as our studio for the day. The location will be disclosed to those that officially RSVP, but for logistic purposes, please use West Chester as your ‘destination point’. We have a very interesting batch of models lining up, with makeup services being provided by the amazing Tina Kane. Updates to the list will be made as they develop, as there are more models to list, and more surprises to include.
For gear considerations, several Alien Bees will be available, with one light in each location, but bringing your own gear is highly encouraged. Please consider being mobile, so that each room/area can be navigated as people switch out. Both models and photographers will be rotated throughout the day, helping to give variety to each setting, model, and photographer. Props and accents are encouraged.
For the house social portion, there will be various foods available, along with a band playing live acoustic music. Attendees are encouraged to bring a simple dish or their own drink of choice. If the numbers increase enough, this will be modified to accommodate the group size.
We have a prize or two to give out to some lucky photographer's that sign up:
1. A brand new copy of the Focal Press Encyclopedia of Photography (http://www.focalpress.com/books/photography/the_focal_encyclopedia_of_photography.aspx?terms=encyclopedia), a $99.95 value, will one of the door prizes. Members do get a substantial discount on Focal Press books, so please check the sponsor link section.
2. A Black Rapid SnapR 10 (a combination bag-sling strap-hand strap, retailing for $29.95) will be another prize to one lucky photographer who RSVP’s for the event. For info on this item and other interesting products, please visit http://www.blackrapid.com/product/camera-strap/snapr10/. Also, I'll be helping Black Rapid with a new promotion, and will share that with the photographers who RSVP.
3. Zoolander on DVD; yep, get your Blue Steel on...one lucky person will win a copy of a true classic movie.
Lastly…punch and pie…
