Hey all, Feb. 28th or March 7th is good for me but not the 14th, family in town.

Shall we say Sat 28 then?

Probably won't make the 28th, as it's my daughter's birthday. (Well, sort of. She's actually on the 29th, which over course doesn't happen this year.) I could do the 7th.

It's easier for me to get it on my calendar for the 7th also. Is your place available then Tim?

Another vote for the 7th.

Okay, how about the 7th then at say 10:00 am? Plan on hanging at Mikes place (if he can clear it with is studio mate), bring your camera, and a couple of prints. We can chat, share our prints, and go out and shoot or stay in and shoot in Mikes place (depends on Mike). Then we can share our images of the get together later online here at apug. That is my suggestion please feel free to add, delete, or comment anything. Other ideas are encouraged.

March 7 would be fine if it works for everyone else.

02-12-2009, 09:22 PM
Works for me

02-12-2009, 10:19 PM
yup, very good for me too.
Tim, where might your studio be??

Just about any weekend in Feb. is open for me. Any ideas on what location's to go? I like to photograph old buildings and old rusting cars.

I'd like to be included. If it is a shooting session, I can find any subject interesting but prefer portraiture.

I talked to Tim This afternoon. He has generously volunteered his "shooting space" for us to meet up. Apparently it has West window light and he has a full compliment of strobe lighting. So here are the details:

Where: Tim's place (exact address will be forth coming. It's some where by the western stock show complex)

When: Saturday March 7th, 10:00 a.m. (Don't know when we will end. I guess as long as Tim can hang out)


Denver area (as far as Nebraska and Wyoming too) film photographers
Meet, greet and eat.
Shoot and Share.
So this is what I think may happen. Tim has a fridge and microwave at his space. I will bring some pastries and a box/carafe of coffee, feel free to bring some other munchies/beverages to share if you want. Bring some prints if you want to share them with the others. I will, so don't make me be the only one to hang it all out there. Shooting will go something like this. If you want to shoot portraiture Tim and I will reach out to a couple of models we know. No guarantees that they will show up so don't be upset if you came to shoot portraits and we couldn't talk a model into coming. If you know a model that needs some portfolio images or is willing to model for donuts and coffee then please invite them to come along. Make sure to let them know that they may be asked by other shooters to pose. Sharing models is encouraged. Tim says that there is space to shoot in studio but also some cool industrial areas around his building. So plan accordingly if you want to shoot a model outside you can, or if you just want to shoot some old industrial stuff, then their is that too. I know 10:00 a.m. sort of sucks for lighting but hey that's what we got.

Tim and I thought maybe we needed to rename or make a new post that is clearer to Denver area shooters. What do you all think? New post or just keep it under this one. If you know any others that want to join us please forward the info, let's try to make this a fun time for everyone, no stress, no worries just some good time to meet shoot and hang out.

Feel free to PM me if you have questions. If you have suggestions please post them so we can all hear what great ideas you have. We need them for sure.

For anyone wanting to carry a get-together into the later hours, my band is playing not terribly far from Tim's studio at 8pm that night. It's at one of the great Denver dive bars, and is a people watcher's dream.

Hey Derek,
thanks for the update.
I have been trying to get a RangefinderForum group together also and to join us, I know member Meeker will probably join us and hopefully others too.
What can I bring?
looking forward to meeting some new people!

I got directions and an address from Tim for everyone interested in going on the 7th.


(4701 National Western Drive)

Exit onto I70 East from of I25

Exit Washington St (first exist East of I25)

Turn Left (North) on Washington

Turn Right on 47th (between a 7-11 and Pizza Hut)

The road does an "S" and turns into 46th

Pass over a bridge and make your first Left before going under the train tracks.

The studio is the first brick building on your Left. It says "Blue Silo" above the door.

I have outdated film that has been refridgerated since birth, 135, 120, 4X5, mostly B&W but some (120) color. I will bring it on the 7th if you all will shoot it up. Let me know.

So let's try to get a head count for this Saturday just so that I know how many donuts and coffee to bring and to let Tim know about how many people he needs to be ready for. So just send me a PM if you think you will be there. If you end up not making it, no big deal, I'm just want an estimate. If you have already PM'd me then your counted and if you have responded to this post your counted also. If you don't PM me and show up that's cool too we just want to get an idea.
