Can you put the word out amongst Duluth Photographers that Homegrown is looking for photographs from the week of the 2008 Homegrown Music Festival? They can contact me if they have any questions.


Thank you!

Make sure you get your photos in.

Otherwise we will loose the privilege to have our own photo show as a part of Homegrown and we would loose the title of offical Homegrown photographers. SO please post to this if you have turned in your photos.

I shot an email to adam.

Wow only Laramie and I turning in photos for Homegrown. Huh.. That looks bad for us. So I guess Laramie and I are the only ones showing at the photo show this year and the only 2 who get free passes. How many prints can you come up with Laramie? I think we will need at least 20 each to make for a good show..
admin
That is surprising. I didn't shoot homegrown but I thought there were quite a few members that did.

I did it last year with Jimi... (with some help of course)

I'd have to come across some funds to help supply a show that big.
admin
there were many that did but Laramie and I oh and Brian are the only ones who seem to care or be interested in showing and being a part of this show?

I have contacted Adam directly last week, and will be setting him up with a shit-ton of photos... so don't be pointing your finger at me.
admin
I point fingers who do not respond to a thread that I posted asking that if you submit photos please respond here. I can only assume that 2 people have done so because of my request. Finger un-pointed at Rich.

Well, here is my thought process I read this originally.

"Home grown submissions? What for?"
"I need to do something besides just read this post to know what for?
"Next"

Perhaps it would have been better received if some key words like "We need submission for a hanging show at Pizza Lucé", or "We would like some images submitted to be potential used on poster and in articles in our paper." had been included. I read it, got little to no info from it, and bounced it.

This is not for the show.. this is for the Homegrown festival it's self for promo and the calendar. The HG show for the DPG is something different. Par t of the deal is that we supply photos from previous years for them to use in adds and promo.. they need them asap. If you don;t want to submit that's fine but don't expect to be asked to be in the show or to receive a free pass to the festival. Does that help Kip? I have also mentioned this at every DPG meeting I have been at. SO thats the deal. In or out people?

I would like to suggest that for ALL and ANYONE that has posted images to the HG flickr group... for the event of 2008... in MY view... they are considered SUBMITTED.

Although I completely understand and respect that this format might not suit the needs of the print media... the Homegrown website has been using this specific flickr group to feed their website for nearly a year.

I love Homegrown. I am not the committee. I am not the boss. (Well... Molina... I hereby appoint myself YOUR boss)...

It would be nice... in fact... it would be KEEN... if however participated and submitted to the HG flickr group, to also consider doing the same in the form of CD/DVD to Adam... It does make his life easier. I'm all for making life easy... except when I am trying to be a pain.

Last year I declared that I would shoot at homegrown, but I wouldn't PAY to shout at homegrown. So I didn't shoot any.

And that's pretty much where I'm at this year.

I can't promise anything Jason. So far everyone else at some point had to pay and shoot and that's how we got this gig. We offered our service for free to get our foot in the door. I just look at it as another opportunity. Last year all they could offer was free passes to those that were in the show and those people paid to shoot the year before so I cant see how we could work it any other way? Unless the organization decides just to give us like 30 free passes which is very doubtful. They don;t make much money off this gig.

So they need to be sent to Adam? If so he will have the few I took by noon.

Do what I did last year if you don't want to pay. Get to the bar at about 5:00pm and drink till the band starts.

Or else look for the early acts that don't have a cover(Unless all this has changed this year). Cellodreams had none, and I had the luxory of being the only photographer.

There are many venues that do not require a cover charge. The Brewhouse and Burrito Union are at least two from last year.

By the way... in case you were not aware, the bands historically do not get paid to perform for this event. They do it for the love. And yes, if prepared properly, you can indeed eat love.

Will there be a list of free venues?

Jason, I wouldn't pay to shout at homegrown either......LOL
admin
Im not sure about any list. Just so everyone knows. The way I got this gig was by being a spectator. I decided to shoot and proposed my work because this is a cool NON Profit event. The pay the bands very little and the rest really goes to promote. I thought it was a good idea to volunteer my photography to help out a cool event that could grow into something and get my name and the DPG name on the map. It has and it is growing but the fact still remains... it is a non profit and I support that and I support that they only give free passes to bands and people that are a part of the show per say. Those that show their work in the photo show get a free pass. No big deal if you choose not to be a part. I just want to make sure that we all understand the process. And to know that this process is not my decision.. Moe
