**Photographers please read this update:::Here's a list for tentative groups and this list is very flexible, so please e-mail me if you'd like to switch to another group for any reason.

And don't forget that this is just a rough list and it'll most likely change up till the date of the shoot.

Group#1
metakephoto (Pocket Wizards)
YouLookNiceTodayPhotography (Cactus or CLS)

Group#2
PhotoInference (Pocket Wizards)
reesman9
greenwoodimages (Nikon CLS)

I grew up going to Skateworld so it would be fun to shoot there. Count me in. I can also ask if my Blazer dancer friend would be a model for this shoot if you guys want...I think she would be a great model.
admin
metakephoto PRO 10 years ago
@YouLookNice: yeah that would be great if you asked your friend to come model, just let me know if she wants to come and i'll add her to the RSVP List...
YouLookNiceTodayPhotography Posted 10 years ago. Edited by YouLookNiceTodayPhotography (member) 10 years ago
PS Looking at the pics you took Jeff of the location, I'm seeing some AWESOME potential. Aaron Ruell (who did the stills for Napoleon Dynamite...and played Kip) does a lot of his photography with somewhat vintage backdrops like this and I love his work. He also does some commercials and band shoots (Postal Service, Rilo Kiley, Death Cab, etc..)

Here is his site:
www.aruell.com/

Just an idea for some inspiration. :)

@YouLookNice: yeah i've seen his pictures a little while back and really liked them. They have a really clean 70's look to them.
And as you can see from the Skateworld pics, the place would lend itself perfectly to something like that...I really liked the couch in the front lobby and there's some great orange stained glass doors before you enter the rink.

that's great, Olivia was great to work with at the McMenamins shoot...and everyone else on the list, if you friends or contacts that would like to model..please feel free to contact them.
but make sure to let us know if they are coming...

Looks like our models are almost outnumbering the photographers :)

I'm new and curious what are the requirements to take part in these events?

I read the photography requirements, but are there any other requirements or can anyone participate as long as they rsvp?

Corey -
Our only requirement is that you respect the models and other photographers, that you post at least one photo of each model you take photo's of on the pdxstrobist.com site, and you have fun. There will be groups with some guidelines when you get to the event just to keep things organized and to make sure each photographer gets a chance to shoot.
We would love for you to come and check it out. :)

metakephoto PRO 10 years ago
So i'm gonna cap this shoot at 18 photographers and once we are full, i'll be splitting everyone up before the shoot into 6 groups of 3 photographers each.

And of course this plan might change, but as of today it sounds like the best plan so far...
afraid caption [deleted] 10 years ago
I'm going to bring my ringlight for this one, with the wonderful colors on the walls it should be GREAT!
Groups setup before we get there sounds great and if you need help with any planning or organizing let me know. We had a large amount of models coming, I can't wait to meet you all!!

So, no music requests yet?
I guess we'll be shooting to the "hokey "pokey on continous replay for 4 hrs straight :)

actually i'm fine on music, i just thought it would be fun to take some requests..
admin
LukeOlsen PRO 10 years ago
Well judging by the images of the place (can't see them now by the way) it really has a 70s feel. Or is it just my memory... Anything but the "hokey pokey". Wait a minute... how about the theme song for the Wonder Pets? Just kidding :)
I'm all for the indie rock...mellow indie rock. (fleet foxes, my morning jacket, shins, Andrew Bird, Death cab, etc...) or classic rock is always good in my book. Or it might be fun to do some mood music to fit the 70's genre...without too much disco of course. :)
oh I know, how about new music that SOUNDS 70's like Belle and Sebastian or something.
admin
metakephoto PRO 10 years ago
yes andrew bird, the shins and belle and sebastian would be a nice fit...and i've got a request from one of the models for some "sir-mix-alot"
admin
metakephoto PRO Posted 10 years ago. Edited by metakephoto (admin) 10 years ago
ok, i opened the RSVP sign up again and i've added 5 spaces...I figured we could have 6 groups of 4 photographers each...
The music that is evolvling here is sounding pretty good. Let's just keep it under control so we can communicate with the models and concentrate a bit. :-}

Looking forward to it.

@Mark Chamberlin: nope, no can do (j/k)
and don't be suprised if we bust out the disco ball for a song or two.

Nice! Guess who will have a new D300 for this shoot? W00t! :)

PS I have a Cactus trigger but can also use CLS since I'll have a D300.

metakephoto PRO 10 years ago
wow, were at a 1 to1 ratio with models to photographers right now....
Tom.Lechner PRO 10 years ago
So are you saying anyone can bring music that can be blast over the loudspeakers? I could bring some Esquivel, not quite 70s, but he was popular in the 50s and he's made a little comeback recently, so it kind of averages out.
admin
LukeOlsen PRO 10 years ago
Cool. Have locations and times been thought about?
admin
metakephoto PRO 10 years ago
@Tom.Lechner: I've put together a playlist on my ipod with about 150+ songs for the day...and i'll make sure to add an Esquivel song, thanks for the request :)

@PhotoInference: Yep, locations and times have been thought out...and I printed out a bunch of schedules for everyone to use during the shoot. So there's 5 locations, 5 groups of photographers and 5 groups of models, and we will have rotations every 45 minutes throughout the locations. I'll explain it more Sunday morning and i'm hoping for the shooting to get started at 8:15am sharp...
Doug S photo 10 years ago
much to my disappointment, I'm going to have to give up my spot for the shoot. Sounds like its going to be a blast too.

Jeff, thank you for putting this together... We had a blast.

To all the models that came. Thank you so much. It was wonderful working with you.
reesman9 10 years ago
thank you for putting this on. I learn a lot..
Yes a million thank yous to Jeff and the models. It was probably my favorite location and strobist shoot yet.

Now...on to going through all these pictures. :)
Tom.Lechner PRO 10 years ago
In retrospect, I wish I had skated a bit. Could have done some neat long exposure shots while moving.
admin
metakephoto PRO 10 years ago
Thanks everyone for coming out today, I really enjoyed the venue and it was nice how much space we had. I'm looking forward to seeing everyones shots...

Also I don't know whats going on with the pdxstrobist.com site, but once it's back up, please remember to submit at least one image from each model you photographed during the day. Also tag your picture pdxstrobist0908, so we'll be able to reference them in the months to come.

LukeOlsen PRO 10 years ago
Awesome. This was really fun. Thanks to Jeff for organizing it and for Jeannie for making sure our group was at the right spot at the right time with the right models. And of course thanks to all the models that made it.
admin
OregonVelo 10 years ago
Just a friendly FYI, at least one photo of each model per photographer needs to be uploaded onto the PDXstrobist.org site. The models are kind enough to work for use for photos that they can use in their portfolios, so if we want them to keep coming back, we need to be uploading the photos to where they can get them.
admin
LukeOlsen PRO 10 years ago
Considering I only have one shot of each of the four models I met this won't be hard. I think the model list needs to be edited to eliminate those who didn't make it.
admin
OregonVelo 10 years ago
I think I have the list updated correctly. Jeff, did you end up with the list or did Jeannie. Also, can you update the list of the actual photographers.

Thanks

i think jeannie ended up with the model list and i had the photographer list.
