So our team hit a bump in the road with committed girls! We are now set on having 6 girls. We would still love to shoot with who ever is available to shoot May 30th.

It has been a little time since I have gotten a chance to come to a meet up and would really love to soon.

I have been really busy starting up this dance team for East County Blackshirts dance team. It is for a Semi pro adult league football team that we dance for and you can find more information on Myspace under Blackshirts Dance team.

I was curious if anyone and all of you would be interested in TFCD shoot with my self and my dance CREW?

If anyone is available for this it would be fantastic. There are going to be 6 girls in the crew including myself.

In return you will get fantastic dance crew type images.

A little background, the dance crew is hip hop/funk so bright colors, fun funky images will work. This is not a stand in a line and smile type look i am looking to have done. More shooting for fun which brought me to PDX Strobist !! You all do amazing work and would love to show your talent off as well.

Feel free to visit that actual team page as well ECblackshirts.com :)

Thank you,

Please let me know if this sounds like something that interests you!

No location set as of yet, open to suggestions!

Thanks so much everyone!!!

Hilleri Elizabeth!

I'm totally game, thank you Hileri for thinking of us and throwing this idea out there. I'm sure you'll have many responses soon :)

I'm interested and eager to hear the details.
I'd be interested as well. I need to get shooting again... especially if it's with those new pocket wizards that were just announced. :)

@Hilleri Elizabeth-

FYI peek at the Kung Fu thread because it looks like the group is planning a meetup that might conflict with your meetup.
Hilleri Elizabeth 9 years ago
Thanks for the heads up! That sounds like an amazing shoot, im flexible I can come after the Kung Fu shot as long as everyone is still up for it!! :)

Thanks everyone

I'd love to be included too.
I'd like to be a part of this but Sunday's are my best days, what about later in the month on a Sunday??
metakephoto PRO 9 years ago
sundays work better for me too.
This sounds like a great photo op. I would love to do something like this with you, Hileri. I have been having a really hard time being available on Sundays. That's why you all haven't seen me in quite awhile. i will be watching for an update on this.

My March seems pretty full but if this ends up happening in April I should like to come.
Hilleri Elizabeth 9 years ago
Hey everyone sorry there hasnt been a more recent up date.

I might ended up having to move the date into April if that works :)

I have a second try out for the dance team on the 13th and 14th of this month, because we decided to go a bigger team.

Location is still up in the air, I would love to hear ideas. The colors are going to be bright like hot pinks and neon orange. Think funky America's Best Dance Crew type.

I am very excited and glad everyone is interested! I will keep up on the posts!!

Thanks all,

Hi Hilleri,

I'd be interested in shooting any time that you come up with. I think a dance team shoot is a great idea.

Is "dance team" another way to say "cheerleaders?"
Hilleri Elizabeth 9 years ago
No no definitely a hip hop dance team think America's best dance crew.

I wish I join y'all but I've gotta do some Kung Fu. Not the shoot, unfortunately, but a Kung Fu sash test.

Next time.

Looks like you've may already have your 6-8 photographers(if you count the interested parties from the original post, I would hate to steal someone's spot), but I would be interested as well.

OK I am in or on the standby list. ( presume there is one?).

A new thread would be good as this is long thread and not obvious as to whom is signed up ( at least to me ).

30th of May?

Some where in the county ( Multnomah ).
