PDX Strobist Meetup/Photoshoot
Time: Sunday April 26th @ 9am (for photographers) / 10am (for models)
Location: Woodworking Mill in St. Johns (exact location will be mailed to attendees this Friday).
Capacity: 20 photographers

Photography Requirements: All participants photographing models are required to submit at least 1 touched up/print ready image per model that they photograph and upload it to pdx strobist.com. And there will be NO model releases signed between photographers/models during this shoot. This meetup/photoshoot is for educational purposes and having fun.

This will be a structured event where we will divide the attendees into groups and each group will rotate through various locations throughout the mill (both inside and out). Photographers are EXPECTED to stay within their group until everyone has rotated through all locations.

Since this runs over lunch it would be nice to make this a potluck. When you RSVP please tell what you'll bring.

Since there are many new people and just to help divide photographers into groups please ALSO include what type of flash triggering mechanism you use... even if it is just a sync cord.

If you'd like to attend please post here and i'll add you to the RSVP list.

I really am feeling the need to get my strobist on so add me to the list.

I am shooting CLS and I can bring drinks.

I'm excited!

yes please CLS veggie tray
Laura Jennings Posted 9 years ago. Edited by Laura Jennings (member) 9 years ago
Count me in! I'll bring my bag of tricks and a few snacks. I use a canon flash transmitter.
DougBPhoto Posted 9 years ago. Edited by DougBPhoto (member) 9 years ago
I am interested, but I have racing to shoot that afternoon, so I'd need to be gone by about 12:15pm-12:30pm.

I have one pocketwizard pair, and Nikon CLS but have never tried/used it. I would also be trying to remember to bring a sync cord.

Oh, wait... if models are showing up 1 hour AFTER photographers, at 10am...

seeing there is a break for lunch, I am guessing most of the activity will happen after I'd need to leave. :(

Most likely I'll have to let someone else who can attend the whole day take the slot.

@PhotoInference: Is it possible for someone to post a series of pictures of the location to get our creative juices flowing? Or is it more of a big surprise for us. thanks.

It would be nice to also get a ride from downtown Portland, if anyone's swinging through that area.
Iveth C. 9 years ago
Anyone know the address to the Woodworking mill? Depending on that I might be able to give a lift, wouldn't mind if it's on my way=).
Pantene Banderas 9 years ago

admin
LukeOlsen PRO 9 years ago
I will send out the address tomorrow around noon via Flickr email. This will include an outline of the shoot and how it will flow. Please EMAIL ME if you are planning on leaving early (I expect the "main" structured shoot to last until 2:30 - 3:00 pm).

@dream w me: It is in St. Johns.
@Tom.Lechner: Perhaps you could hook up with Pantene Banderas since Zuzzie is also near downtown.

Crap, I just learned tonight that I need to fly out of town for business this weekend. Looks like @T. Dodge gets a spot. I look forward to seeing all the group's work, have fun guys and gals. thx PhotoInference for setting this up for us.
noisy rabbits [deleted] 9 years ago
Greetings

I live in inner NE PDX, intersection of NE Fremont St & 15h Avenue, does that work for anyone to give me a ride?

Other wise a taxi or Tri-Met bus which is doable I find.

T. Dodge,

I think Tara and I could pick you up. We'll be coming up from SE Portland. If you send me your address we can be there at 8:30AM.

LukeOlsen PRO 9 years ago
@jaketaz200283: No MUA. There is of course time for the models to apply makeup and change outfits if needed.
@OregonVelo: Can you have your model show up around noon? I want at least the first half of this event to be more collaboration with other photographers in their respective groups. Two models within a group tends to splinter a group in half.
@kenneth barton: Of course but there is an upper limit when it comes to only one person shooting at a time within a group.

Have fun, all!
silverwolfe PRO Posted 9 years ago. Edited by silverwolfe (member) 9 years ago
;(( I have no camera ;((
I sent mine to Dr Nikon (thought it would be back by now), & was going to use a friend's if necessary, but their plans changed....

soooo, I can't come be a shooter. I suspect w/20 photogs & models, you don't really need an extra person just for assisting. looks like a space for footnoteblog?
admin
LukeOlsen PRO 9 years ago
@footnoteblog: You've been moved onto the list
@silverwolfe: Sorry about that. Hope the Nikonians fix it soon.
admin
LukeOlsen PRO 9 years ago
Also... since it seems that all or most of the photographers are coming with models that we will basically start when the tour / talk is done.
silverwolfe PRO 9 years ago
thanks Luke - I'm bummed ;(
I've enjoyed the events I've attended, & can't wait to learn more!!
and hopefully, next week I'll get back an almost new camera ;))
