Anyone else on here from Arkansas?
Hey, just joined up, purchased my first LF camera this weekend and can't wait to dive headfirst into it. Jbridges, of the Darkroom courses at Little Rock?
I don't live there, but I travel to Fayetteville several times a year for both photography and music. I'll be there this coming weekend.
I live a few miles north of Fayetteville. I love it there. Have you checked out Collier Drug & Photo on Dickson Street?
I've never needed to, as I typically arrive pretty well stocked, but it's good to know it's there. The Pendergraft family is my client connection out there, and I'll be playing with Earl Cate and some other fine musicians out there this weekend.
I grew up in Jacksonville and still have family there and around Little Rock. I get out there on occasion for family visits.
DR317 - Yes i am. Love to go shoot with you sometime. There is a great photographer named Don House that shoots film and lives around there, be sure and look him up. Have fun with your LF.
Cheryl - Your playing with the Cate Brothers?! I used to watch them play a lot at George's.
Yeah, I met Don just last week at a Photographic Society of Northwest Arkansas meeting. I love his work.
I shoot primarily 35mm and Medium Format.
I live in Memphis, but am a native of Arkansas. If you folks are going to meet in LR for shooting, ill gladly drive over.
Are there real cameras in Arkansas??
Yes, and we have running water too. Best part is, it doesn't taste like sulfur like it does in Texas.
I intended no disrespect... I was just ribbing you. In fact, would seriously consider moving to the Ozarks.
Oh I was kidding back, but can't make the little faces when using my phone.
I figured so but I meant what I said about moving to the Ozarks.... beautiful part of the country.
I don't live in Arkansas, but I live in SW Missouri (Springfield). My wife's family is from Hot Springs.
I've always wanted to meet him(Don) since he is a darkroom rat. I love his series of his kids.
I think it would be awesome if we could have an APUG regional photo day. Maybe we can all meet somewhere cool kinda in the middle like the White River swamp area or something like that? Ideas?!
I would be up for the White River NWR. However, if you guys want to come over to the East, Crowley's Ridge is pretty interesting.
I've always wanted to explore that area! I'm usually in fast pursuit of Memphis. Sounds awesome to me and you could be the guide. Lets see what the other folks say.
My day job may end up moving me to Little Rock. Lots of unreasonable fear and trepidation. I did have a bad experience up at Ozone a few years ago...
You should have stayed out of the back woods!!
Ever seen the movie "Deliverance"?
Yeah, played with Ernie Saturday night. He's awesome. Also Gerry Moss, Paul Hughes, Bill White, and my regular drummer John Ware. John is the cog in the wheel, having played with all these guys in past bands like Emmylou Harris' Hot Band, Levon Helms, Linda Ronstadt, Carole King, the First National Band, Roseanne Cash, and a bunch of others. The whole show is in a barn and all recorded live. It's a hoot.
I suppose we'll be doing it again in August, according to our traditional timeline. You should stop by.
Covering any Johnny Lang?
If you get a shoot lined up I'd be interested.
