@silverwolfe: yes there's electricity and i'm pretty sure there's a bathroom somewhere in the building. And we'll easily be able to assign an area for the models to change and get ready.
WJPpdx 8 years ago
I can bring a ladder or two, depending upon how high we need to go. One is an A-frame ladder you could stand on and shoot from which might be helpful for shooting and the other is a lean-against-the-building type ladder, maybe 20' tall.

@Don Tropez: you are signed up and in group#3...see you on Saturday @ noon. Also please e-mail OregonVelo with your real e-mail address, so we can send you the location of the shoot Friday evening.
Can't make it after all, you all have a great time and I can't wait to see what you capture!
All Who Wander 8 years ago
Not going to be able to make this one after all... I sent a msg to my group, too.

Have fun everyone!

Might seem cheesy to some but.....
At the end of the day tomorrow, I think it'd be fun if we dedicate the last 15-20 minutes to a group shot with the remaining models/fighters still dressed the part in a Warriors (the movie) type of group shot... either stationary or walking. :) The 4 group leaders could draw straws to decide which group will collab & shoot it. :) The models can draw straws themselves to win the center frame of the shot. Sound fun to anyone? anyway, just an idea. :)
metakephoto PRO 8 years ago
yes, cheesy, but i'm always up for ridiculous shot ideas....we could always setup four sets of lights and have four photographers shooting at the same time.
metakephoto PRO 8 years ago
All the location e-mails have been sent out to the photographers on the list, so if your on the list and havent received the location e-mail...please let me know and i'll send it to you.

see everyone tomorrow :)

Placebo #4 Posted 8 years ago. Edited by Placebo #4 (member) 8 years ago
Yes thanks to everyone who put this together. I had a great time. I do have a question. I was loading my card to my computer and was surprised and feel stupid that I didn't notice and bring up the swastikas on Chris' chest. Model mayhem is not showing bio info for some reason tonight so I can't see if he has an explination about them or not. Kinda Fd up though. Anyone ask him about them?
LukeOlsen PRO Posted 8 years ago. Edited by LukeOlsen (admin) 8 years ago
Thanks for setting this up guys. It was fun and thanks to the models for putting up with my experiments. I do agree with Ben about Chris and cannot bring myself to post an image of him (the single id shot). Hopefully others will understand.
Sarah.Lynch Posted 8 years ago. Edited by Sarah.Lynch (member) 8 years ago
I had a lot of fun too guys. And I see a ton of good shots already. Thanks Ben for catching that - all my shots of him are with his shirt on. But I'm not posting them. Not even with an explanation. Thanks.

** edit **

Thanks for the explanation Ben. Everybody deserves a new start.

I'll post a shot because they're covered up and I'll honor my agreement with the group.

But I retain my stance that Nazi tattoos suck and Nazis suck (except for the otherwise mentioned "approved" Nazis.

Guess I'll do more tattoo inspection on future shoots. :)

Unless of course directly above it, it says "I hate Illinois Nazis...."

Because that's one of my favorite Blues Brothers quotes - we should do that movie too.....

What is up with the PDXStrobist and touchy subjects lately? I may just have to miss the next one to stay away from the controversy. I understand people’s wishes not to post on to flickr and maybe even not to be associated with photos of Chris. If you did take a photo of Chris, please make sure to post one on the PDXstrobist site. If you don’t want your name on it in any way, that is fine, but please email me a message once you have so I can mark it down that you have met your obligation.
Hovering Studios 8 years ago
I uploaded my images to the PDXStrobist Gallery yesterday and the Lightbox doesn't seem to be working on my images. The thumbnails are there but they don't load the larger images when clicked. I shot Roman, Nathan, Xander and Alex. None are working. Suggestions?
Placebo #4 Posted 8 years ago. Edited by Placebo #4 (member) 8 years ago
Well I did not mean to start drama but I'm not putting work into something I don't believe in. He was a super friendly guy to shoot with and personally I don't have anything against him, but I have strong personal feelings against white supremacy. To forgive past actions and treat someone at face value is important and I had no intention of starting a mutiny. Anyway I asked him about them on MM last night so this is his reply;

"Hey Chris,

it was good shooting with you today. Hope you enjoyed the flickr meet.
I was going over my photos this evening and can't believe I didnt notice the giant swastika on your chest- what's the story on that?


Chris Pollock

funny that you didnt notice but thats actually not the first time that someone didnt notice among all the other ink. But anyhow, to answer your question- I was in prison from the age of 21 to 35 and that is where all of my tattoos were done (homemade tattoo guns,homemade and/or smuggled-in tattoo ink) and prison is filled with no small amount of racial tension and that is basically what those tattoos are about. I was somewhat of a troublemaker for many of those 14 years in prison till I got my shit together,got clean and sober,discovered health and fitness,etc..."

So there you are. It was my fault i didnt notice the swastika/nazi tattoos on him as its obviously a trigger for me but I think a moderators/admins should have.

If it helps i did like that Soup Nazi Seinfeld episode. And Stewie Griffin makes a pretty cute Nazi.

Edit: (also)

I have given it a lot of thought to this and have decided to post a photo of Chris as well. Had i noticed Chris's tattoos from the beginning i would have said something and moved on to another model. However as he pointed out i did shoot him and it is an agreed commitment. If I had the opportunity to shoot something that i did not agree with but was prepared to present the image how i interpreted it -that would be different situation. In this situation i did not feel comfortable making something i feel is an ugly symbol beautiful for the model, It would feel like a lie.

I feel like i have come to balance with the image and the issues that it brought up for me. Its all just a big learning experience right?

Roman is also having problems getting to the pdxstrobist site, he gets an error.

He may need to reinstall his browser's java client.
He can test if it's working properly & fix at this URL:

I took my photo down of chris...his explanation sounds legit, and he seemed like a nice guy...but for me I have to be extra careful of what I post since my students look at my flickr photos constantly...I would rather avoid the issue entirely.

sorry this my first time - are we supposed to upload the high resolution photos to pdxstrobist.com? is there a size limit per file? thanks to the organizers who made this event possible. I had a great time.
metakephoto PRO 8 years ago
@donelly duck: yeah, upload at least (1) hi-res jpeg photo for each model you worked with during the shoot. And there's no limit to the individual files you upload. And then post back here when you've done so.

Thanks everyone for putting this shoot together. I had an awesome time and enjoyed working with my group and the models! I very much appreciated the organization of this shoot and think that pregrouping everyone worked out really well.

DaveWeav 8 years ago
Thank you everyone for a great meetup! I just wanted to add that this was a great location with a lot of character, nice open spaces and if we can get locations like this I think $10.00 apiece is a steal.
ʎɥdɐɹbodıd 8 years ago
I agree... that was a sweeeet location. I'd be willing to even up that if it'll continue to give us more & more killer locations like this for the group... and also a small portion for the MUA's especially if they're TFP'ing for the group. Thanks again to everyone for putting this together.

My PDXStrobist Gallery images are still wonked. Won't blow up to the larger lightbox size for me in any of my browsers. Other people's images blow up fine.

Who do I talk to about this? Might need to have the images deleted so I can reload. Bueller?

My images are in Roman, Nathan, Xander & Alex's galleries.

Also, I am definitely willing to pay for more shoots like the one last weekend. Awesome location, models and MUAs. Well done!

hovering - what types of files are they? need to be .jpg. I couldn't get it to take .tiffs last time....
Hovering Studios 8 years ago
Hi Silverwolf. They are JPGs and were resized to 600x400 before uploading. The thumbnails were generated by the gallery, but the 600x400's seem to be wonked. I use Gallery2 on my websites as well, but I am at a loss as to why they aren't blowing up.

Guys, 600x400px is NOT an acceptable file size to be giving to models. The models need enough resolution to be able to make prints for their portfolios.
Gina Garbero 8 years ago
@NXT - Yahoo is compressing files now or rather reducing image sizes to 600 x 400. if you are emailing the photos to the models with yahoo, that is what they are receiving, regardless of the larger size being sent. ??? Maybe?
charming alarm [deleted] 8 years ago
Sorry it took so long but I didn't shoot much (took me a while to figure out what was the best of what I got).

I shot with:

Nathan and Roman Together: Uploaded to Gallery
Jesse and Tyler Together: Uploaded to Jesse (still no Tyler folder)
Alex Solo: Uploaded to Gallery
Xander Solo: Uploaded to Gallery

I should be current... Thanks so much to all who were involved with organizing, make up and modeling. Though I didn't shoot much I really learned a lot by studying everyone else.
