Photostock 2010
The 5th Annual Northern Michigan Photographer's Gathering
June 18 - 27, 2010
Harbor Springs/Good Hart, Michigan

It is time once again to get the dates set for the gathering in 2010 and I wanted to get them out there with hopes people can mark their calendars and consider their plans for the coming year. We hope to continue the past tradition as well as involve even more instructors and activities for those attending.


Further details are still to be announced, but it is safe to say that work has already begun on bringing some excellent people to share their work and knowledge in this coming year.

Just a quick bump on this to let everyone know that plans are in full swing for the previously specified dates. A more formal announcement will be coming in the next few weeks so that those attending can plan accordingly.

In addition, the Birchwood Inn (http://www.birchwoodinn.com) is now taking reservations and I've been notified that rooms are already being booked. It is never too early! Reserve your room now as the chaper "closet" rooms go fast. We are attempting to keep all workshops and activities based at the hotel this year so that travel other than shooting excursions will be kept to a minimum.

I'm happy you're coming again, Bob. And even happier you'll be teaching a full-on workshop this time. It'll be great to see Laura and the rug rats as well. (don't tell them I said that)

Last time you were in Michigan I believe you insulted our own JD Callow and his lovely wife Helen , I will try to bring back some dignity that you so callously refused to show.

Hello All,

Just a small update here on the shops that will be offered this year. We will be once again offering the Wet Plate Collodion, Gum Over Platinum as well as negative creation. New for this year will be a workshop in the Polymer Gravure Process as well as an in-depth, intensive workshop in methods best not discussed here led by Bob carnie and the good folks at Elevator who are once again coming from Toronto. We are also hoping to have a shop in the lith printing process, but that will depend upon a facility where this can be done. Although we are set for alt processes, an actual teaching darkroom with enlargers still eludes us. If we can arrange this, it will most likely have to be off-site. Plans are still being considered to build at least a temporary teaching darkroom in the basement of the Birchwood to house this, but it is not known if this will be ready by June.

Discussions are also ongoing to secure several people for portfolio reviews as well. This was very popular last year with Shelby and it is hoped we can have at least a couple experienced people here this year to take appointments.

Look soon for a formal post in the Great Lakes Regional Forum that formally announces the event and the open of registrations and reservations for the workshops. As for the workshops, I am already getting a lot of people wanting to reserve space ahead of time. While I appreciate and am grateful for the interest, in an effort to be fair I ask that everyone wait until registrations are open. Placement will then be on a first come basis with alternate lists if needed. Most shops will again be 2 day affairs and more will be added if the demand is there.

That's all for now folks. From this cold Michigan perspective, June can't come fast enough. Think summer!

It was great to have you there last year, Travis. It would be cool to see you again, but I also understand it is a long way for you.
