Photographers and Digital Artists of Los Angeleshttp://community.shoottheday.com/group/pdala
The there are two world wide photographic events that will be going on in the next few months.
The first is on July 20, 2008 called Shoot The Day.
Wherever you are on July 20th, PhotoShelter wants you to Shoot! The Day.
The mission is to revitalize stock photography.
Thousands of photographers worldwide will connect, take pictures, and learn.
Together we'll make the stock photo supply fresh again.
This will be a prize driven contest that seems like a lot of fun! I have placed a link for you to join the group. And will be making contact with other groups in the community to work together on making this a fun event.http://community.shoottheday.com/group/pdala

The second event is the World Wide Moment
, I am trying to find out more about the organization that is putting this on. This is supposed to take place on August 8, 2008, I know at this time is that USC is part of this event.World Wide Moment
This may be a great meet up event where we can shoot as a group and participate in a location shoot. We can set our area as Hollywood California or we can use downtown Los Angeles as a location.
