The intention of this is to be a social meet-up however as shooting and modeling are the natural activities of photographers and models feel free to bring your lighting and camera gear, your outfits, or your make-up if you are son inclined. The house isn't huge but it is unusually colorful and eclectic.

dannotti and dtaangpdx,

You two are already on the list; 16th and 19th respectively. See you there, or actually, since I'm home right now, I'll see you here.

[ninjaphoto] 10 years ago
Please put me on the "most likely" list. January is still a bit away. However, if things work out, I'd be happy to give a mini-workshop on continuous lighting. Just putting the idea out there. Cheers.
Iveth C. 10 years ago
Sounds like a plan, sign me up I will be there! Definately something to look forward to after the holidays are through.
thinkable straw [deleted] 10 years ago

kenneth barton PRO 10 years ago
Amber Jewel,

Yes sure, why not.

Rosborough Photography 10 years ago
I would love to come Ken but haven't made the list. Can you add me? Thanks, Aaron
coupeowner 10 years ago
Looks like I didn't make the list either - actually looks like a few of us from a while ago didn't make the list. Something I need to know???

Just Kidding.

WJPpdx 10 years ago
I'd love to attend. This will be my first event with y'all. Still have room?
mm767cap 10 years ago

Looks like I've got to fly that day. You can take me off the list and make some room. Hope to meet you all someday.

kenneth barton PRO Posted 10 years ago. Edited by kenneth barton (admin) 10 years ago
You've got to ask to be on the list. You're there now.

You're on there too.

Sorry to hear that. I've removed you. Better luck next time.

Megan Marie Hodge 10 years ago
I would love to be one of the models. Please do let me know. I would love to work with some new people!!!

Thanks Megan
coupeowner 10 years ago

I actually did a couple of weeks ago (look up the list). Looks like aether.drinker also got lost in the shuffle. Thanks again for putting this on!
Pete Bady 10 years ago

OregonVelo 10 years ago
Heather... All members of this group are welcome... New and Old. :)
I thought I was on this list but I guess I'm not. Go ahead and add me :) I don't know how much shooting I'll do but at the least I'll get to catch up with everyone.
njl-photolog PRO 10 years ago
If there is any room left, I'd like to join you folks. I'm quite the newbie to the art of setting up lighting so I'd love to learn from you guys.
count me in....though i'm shooting that day until 6ish but would love to meet some other photographers!
enjoy the snow everyone:)
All Who Wander Posted 10 years ago. Edited by All Who Wander (member) 10 years ago
Would love to attend if you've got room... I just noticed you live two blocks away!

wetribe 10 years ago
Sorry to miss this . Would have like to have met you (and the rest of the gang) but moved down to San Fran now which is great , but still missing Portland.
Stereoblind 10 years ago
Is there still room? If so, please add me.
Pantene Banderas 10 years ago
If there is room, the wife and I would love to attend.

Newbie here and both a couple of voracious amateurs looking to glean more knowledge of shooting.

This sounds like a hoot. We both cook and can bring libations too.

Let me know.

kenneth barton PRO 10 years ago
Panten Banderas,

Thanks for the offer regarding cooking. There will need to be a little planning for this event which was going to be mostly a party/get-together but will almost certainly become a shoot. I've got so much going on that I don't want to begin the actual planning until after Christmas, but at that point I plan to start a planning thread alongside this attendance thread where we can figure out who brings what foods and drinks.

We may also plan different shots for different rooms and/or some kind of mini-workshops or, I don't know, whatever we come up with. Maybe there can be a table where people put and share portfolios, though most of us do this on line these days.

The main thing I'm worried about is the weather, being that my garage can be kept warm and that people can physically get here, but as long as it isn't snowing we should probably be OK.

Pantene Banderas 10 years ago
Sounds good, we're easy. This time of year is always crazy, never mind the worst storm since I've been here.

Can't believe today is the 1st day of winter!

I've also got some folding chairs I can bring if seating will be an issue.

smooth swim [deleted] 10 years ago
I may or may not be able to come now. Depends on the snow. I heard 84 is closed right now. So if it stays this way I will not be going anywhere. So can you put me on a maybe list?
Whoowl 10 years ago
Wow, looks like a huge group already, but if you have room for me than I would like to come as well.
[ninjaphoto] 10 years ago
Doh, can't make it. Got work stuff to do. :( Everybody have fun!
elric1911 10 years ago

Nicholas Cooper 10 years ago
might be able to show if there is enough room. :)
OregonVelo 10 years ago
elric1911 - during the summer we had some week day evening ones.
smooth swim [deleted] 10 years ago
Since the roads are clearing, i will for sure be there with my first time model friend. Are we going with any kind of theme?
Strober 10 years ago
Sunday opened up for me, so if its not too many people please count me in . I'll bring some imbibes and goodies as well as gear.
gabby flower [deleted] 10 years ago

DaveWeav 10 years ago
@deziner999 I'm sorry that your not going to make it. I was looking forward to talking with you about the D300. This camera is going to take a long time to master! :-)
smooth swim [deleted] 10 years ago
Hey! Do we need to bring refreshments??
Michael Durham PRO 10 years ago
Kenneth - I wish I could join the fun, but my wife and daughter have other plans for me.

You are generous to open your house to so many people - and I hope I will find the time to join a future event.


@DaveWeav I have a D300 and would be happy to chat.
| whiteSpace | PRO 10 years ago
@DaveWeav Bummer. We'll definitely compare notes next time.

silverwolfe PRO 10 years ago
have a wonderful time !! I would've loved to have come, but have escaped our goofy winter by leaving for new years eve in NW Mt (where they know how to handle snow ;).

wishing everyone a joyful properous new year!!
Hilleri Elizabeth 10 years ago
Hey I wont be able to make it today! Sorry everyone.

Hope you have a good time
GeoFX 10 years ago
I won't be able to make it today. Have fun guys!!
njl-photolog PRO 10 years ago
I can't make the get together either. Had a client phone me a couple of hours ago with the classic "oh! could you just do X, it will only take a minute" -- the perils of being self-employed. ;-)

Hope to meet folks at the next event.

Happy New Year.
I too just arrived home from Bend and will not be able to make it. Sorry for the late notice.
