Welcome to Fight Club. The first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club. The second rule of Fight Club is: you DO NOT talk about Fight Club! Third rule of Fight Club: if someone yells "stop!", goes limp, or taps out, the fight is over. Fourth rule: only two guys to a fight. Fifth rule: one fight at a time, fellas. Sixth rule: the fights are bare knuckle. No shirt, no shoes, no weapons. Seventh rule: fights will go on as long as they have to. And the eighth and final rule: if this is your first time at Fight Club, you have to fight.

Date: Saturday March 20th 2010
Models and MUA's: 10am
Photographer Time: Noon-6pm
Location: If your on the RSVP list you will be flickr-mailed the location this Friday evening.
Photographers and Models: This shoot is 18+, there will be NO nudity, but we do ask for 18+
Cost $10.00 for photographers: The fee will help pay for the location, make-up, refreshments and domain name renewal (www.pdxstrobist.org). We're asking everyone to bring $10 exact to cover these expenses.

Past photoshoot requirement: The Organizers will be taking a close look at who has been to a previous PDX Strobist event and NOT submitted photos for that particular shoot.

@waitlist people: I'm working on getting everyone into the shoot, so don't worry if your on the waitlist. Currently it's 4 groups with 4 photographers in each group. So if anyone can devise a good plan for organizing 30+ photographers at the shoot, let me know.

@kenneth barton: yes models are needed for the shoot. And this goes for everyone attending...invite people to fight and they don't have to be models.

@reesman: nope...saturday saturday saturday saturday saturday saturday saturday saturday saturday saturday saturday saturday

admin
metakephoto PRO Posted 8 years ago. Edited by metakephoto (admin) 8 years ago
ok, i've included all the wait list people for this shoot. There is going to be 40 photographers max with 10 photographers per group. And before everyone starts whining that they wont be able to shoot a bunch with 10 photographers in their group. Remember these shoots are for learning and helping each other out. So I figure by having 10 people per group, each group can act as there own background, having 9 extras each time they shoot a fight. So photographers, come prepared to be an extra if needed.

Also i've already split everyone into groups (take a look at the main post above) so feel free to start working with your group and flickr-mailing each other with ideas (props to bring, clothing, lighting setups, etc...)
admin
ShutterCraze (NUEL) 8 years ago
OK can someone tell me how in the world if possible to send a group flickrmail? I think collaborating before the shoot is a great idea. If the limitation of flickrmail allows just one person to send to one other person then it will be hard to collaborate here. Everyone in my Group #4 if you'd like to send me a flickrmail with an alternate email address (yahoo, msn, gmail, .mac, comcast, verizon, etc) and I can start a single email train were all of us can see and share our ideas.

Just a reminder for all you slackers out there, please upload your pictures over at www.pdxstrobist.com and let us know once you've done so. It's been over a month since the February shoot, so come on guys....pick up the slack...

Past photoshoot requirement: The Organizers will be taking a close look at who has been to a previous PDX Strobist event and people who have not submitted photos for that particular shoot. If we find that you have not met the photo requirement of providing a photo of each model you shoot then you will be bumped off this meet up until your requirement has been met.

also...people attending...please contact people to come and model...the more the merrier......it would just suck if we end up with only one pair of fighters and 40 photographers...Though I guess we could always just fight each other if it came down to it..

oh, this is next weekend? can I come, puleeeeese??
I thought it was today, err yesterday.

@J Petrina: It is recommended to bring your own strobes and gear, but I'm pretty sure if you bring a couple sets of "AA" batteries, someone in your group will share :)
And I've put you in group #4, so please e-mail Shuttercraze with your real e-mail, so we can send you the location on Friday night.

@dave_g_lim: if you can show up at 10am with the table that would be great, but we wont start shooting until noon. And definitely invite your friends to come model. especially if you think they'd be good for the shoot.

I hate to do this, but I have to back out. I have a photo shoot on the beach Saturday, and cannot reschedule. I apologize, but please remove me from the list so someone else can take my spot...I hate this because I really would rather have done this shoot for the experience alone. The thing is I had promised to do the beach shoot previously and there was a mix-up with our schedules...
