Haag Lake BBQ Potluck Pool Party (Meetup/Photoshoot)
"thanks to Randy Kashka for hooking us up with this awesome location"

Date: Sunday July 18th 2010

Location: This will be at a house located right up the street from Haag Lake (Directions will be flickr mailed to you sometime before the shoot)

Time: Noon-6pm @ the House; 6pm-Sundown @ Haag Lake (this part is tentative, depending on if the models/photographers want to stick around this long)

BBQ Potluck: Please note what food or drink you can bring when signing up (so we can get a good array of food)

Age Requirement: Shoots are 18+ for both photographers and models.

Underwater Photography: If anyone has access to underwater photography equipment please let us know. I would like to be able to do some underwater portraits and everyone could share the camera throughout the day. Or if someone knows about where we could rent one and approx. how much it would cost.

Photo Requirement: You will be required to submit at least (3) shots of each model you photograph during the day to in the designated models gallery. The models are giving their time for free, so the least we can do is give them some photographs.

Past photoshoot requirement: The Organizers will be taking a close look at who has been to a previous PDX Strobist event and NOT submitted photos for that particular shoot. If we find that you have not met the photo requirement of providing a photo of each model you shoot then you will be bumped off this meet up until your requirement has been met.

Scuba was my thang back home in Hawaii but I never got into underwater photography. I have friends here in Portland though that do have underwater photo gear, I'll see if any of them would be interested in joining this meetup. Probably no cost, most likely trade for good BBQ.
abacus | photography Posted 8 years ago. Edited by abacus | photography (member) 8 years ago
I'm go on the underwater gear, tho. Checking the schedule. If I make it, I can bring some sort of pasta salad, etc.
I would be interested, also I have a photog friend coming in from out of town, could I bring her along?
dath1974 8 years ago
I'm in. I can bring a few Ziploc bags, but we have to use your camera;->

I'll bring some kind of side dish, depending on what other folks want to bring. Don't need ten bowls of potato salad;->

Sorry I can't attend, I have another event to photograph.

FWIW, I saw an underwater camera (film) with a few lenses and flash on Craigslist for $100 in Aloha.
dath1974 8 years ago
Oh, and is it Saturday the 17th, or Sunday the 18th? ;->

Do you think I could get a head count?

@ashley mourning: check the top of this post closer to the date for a head count.
Placebo #4 8 years ago
Can you put me down as a maybe? When i know for sure i'll post my famous roasted possum or something...
dath1974 8 years ago
Alright, looks like we're still hurting in the non-alcoholic drinks category. Change me over from side-dish to sodas. I may still bring a side though, but I'll definitely bring some soda pop.
ʎɥdɐɹbodıd 8 years ago
Paul, one of my friends from the band... is getting married next year. If they can score a tux & wedding dress to trash at the pool or lake, I'm sure they'd be willing subjects for TFP. Anyone mind if I ask them? If not, I'll go ahead and see if they're available.

Hey Randy, is the grill at the residence gas or charcoal? Should we chip in for propane? or if it's charcoal, i'll just bring a bag.
I can bring soda as well.
OregonVelo 8 years ago
What images are you waiting for me to post?
metakephoto PRO 8 years ago
@oregonvelo: they were the "eat light" photos, cause at the time when I posted everything, there wasn't any images in the models galleries. But now there are, so feel free to move yourself into the RSVP list. :)
OregonVelo 8 years ago
Okay... Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something I didn't know about.
doymc2 Posted 8 years ago. Edited by doymc2 (member) 8 years ago
Hello again, Not sure quite how this works to join the shoot. Seeing people added not sure who or how to contact. Only used flickr to post my pics and this is the 1st group i've joined. I'm guessing if my name shows in the phtographes list at top of post i'm included?

Sign me up. Been watching this group come together and finally looks like a chance to meet up with you all for the first time; life makes me work every Saturday. I bring a couple of chickens.


ShutterCraze (NUEL) 8 years ago
OK I got my props and concept in my head and ready to go. Also bringing a model entourage of Juls, Kat, and Alisha.
Randy Kashka PRO 8 years ago
@PIP and all - no grill, it's broken. If we want to cook anything we need to supply our own BBQ or portable grill or what ever - or - just bring the stuff already cooked. I'd rather spend time shooting than cooking...
pretty advice [deleted] 8 years ago
Sorry I'm out I forgot I will be out of town this weekend.
ʎɥdɐɹbodıd 8 years ago
Thanks for the 411 Randy. I'll change my food item then... will just bring 2 dozen Roast Pork BBQ buns(always a hit) and a cooler of microbrews of course.
Randy Kashka PRO 8 years ago
I did a "site" visit on Saturday and took some pictures so you have an idea what the site looks like.

CLICK HERE to see the photos.

If you have any other questions about the site let me know. There is "some" poison ivy in the real remote areas so watch out for that. They have been spraying for it so most is gone but they want to make sure you were aware.

They have a smoker and will be providing pull pork and my wife will be bringing a salad of some sort

I will try to come from noon to 5 ish, but cant stay for the whole event. If I come I will bring some deserts.
ellyvstheworld PRO 8 years ago
I would love to come. I just shot with Jeff and had a blast, he told me about this event. I'm both a photographer and a you can use me how you please! :)

PS: I have tons of dresses I don't mind getting wet at all ;)

Will bring beer.

Can you add Tabitha as a model please?
DaveWeav 8 years ago
@metakephoto: I signed up for hotdogs. Do I need to bring something that doesn't need the BBQ?
Tom.Lechner PRO 8 years ago
I'd like to come, but I'd need a ride ideally from downtown Portland, if not there, then along the max somewhere. I can bring cheese.
metakephoto PRO 8 years ago
@DaveWeav: yeah were gonna have to rethink the BBQ food, unless someone can bring a portable BBQ? Anyone have a portable BBQ that they wanna bring?
thirsty grape [deleted] 8 years ago
@tom i'll flickr mail you my number about the ride, im in NE.

so yeah, i'll be there for sure. looking forward to meeting you all.
greenwoodimages 8 years ago
Sorry, I'm out.
ShutterCraze (NUEL) 8 years ago
Yah, I felt a little weird asking the models to cook before they come to the meetup. The burgers and buns were the only thing left to sign up for them. I'm sure there are other things they worry about like clothes, makeup, and props to get ready for in the morning.

I have a portable BBQ and tank at home but no room in the car to haul it along. If someone wants to come over before or the morning of the meetup to pick it up and haul it then that would be great.

Keith Weldon-Speakeasy Model Agency will be there with a Few Models...bringing the heavy hitters Jeff...I'll Bring Wine
DaveWeav 8 years ago
I don't want to speak for everyone else but I would think that we wouldn't ask the models to bring food (only the photographers) and the photographers would bring enough for the models that are giving us their time.
dath1974 8 years ago
Randy, the gnome is priceless;->
metakephoto PRO Posted 8 years ago. Edited by metakephoto (admin) 8 years ago
how about we skip the BBQ, i've switched my potluck to pizza....and the other could switch to sandwiches or something like that...just an idea

@DaveWeav: what would you like to switch your potluck item too?
alert shock [deleted] 8 years ago
I will be there with Keith and the rest of the Speakeasy team. I'll bring some Corona and a dessert! Let me know if there is anything different that you would rather I bring and I can do that too! Definitely excited for this shoot...thanks for the opportunity.
DaveWeav 8 years ago
@metakephoto: I will bring some type of sandwiches, wraps or something similar that doesn't need to be cooked.

Sign me up please, turkey wraps
abacus | photography 8 years ago
hey there...

Jeff... please add me as well. The lineup says you are still waiting for me to post...actually have some shots posted (had a bunch of Ashley that were unusable due to some was not able to get three for each..still learning!)

I can bring whatever you still need in terms of food/bevarages...except a portable BBQ unfortunately.

@Charlene Lauricella: your definitely welcome...
general iron [deleted] 8 years ago
Ok, Tristan will be coming with me, as a model again this time. Can't wait for the shoot. =]
ShutterCraze (NUEL) 8 years ago
@metakephoto- my access to underwater gear is not going to happen this time around. Too bad, maybe next time.
ʎɥdɐɹbodıd 8 years ago
@metakephoto - can I group with you and test out your housing too for my G11?
nikonpdx 8 years ago
I'll bring my point and shoot with an underwater housing, but it's pretty basic, Canon A540
metakephoto PRO 8 years ago
@pip: of course i'll let you shoot with the housing...
metakephoto PRO 8 years ago
So if you didnt receive a flickr-mail with directions and are on the list, please let me know and i'll send them your way.
njl-photolog PRO 8 years ago
Had hoped for a last minute change of plans, but I won't be able to make it to this photo shoot. Have fun!
