Photostock 2011
June 23 - 26
Harbor Springs/CrossVillage, Michigan


After last year's hiatus, it is time to get back on-track with Photostock. Having mentioned this in person to several of you I've been lucky enough to see, I've finally chosen the dates and it is time to get them out there with hopes people can set aside the time to get together in the north country once again. The plan for this year is to take a step back and make it more like it was originally, a laid back, take it as it comes gathering of people that do what it is we all do. I've missed it and I want to have some fun.

There will still be a few scheduled events and such, but in no way as ambitious as the last couple. There will be a print exchange, a couple spotlighted presentations and maybe even a surprise guest or two, but basically I hope for it to be like the more the relaxing time we original 14 experienced way back in the summer of 2006. Shooting, good friends and fun stories around the fire.

There will be no cost to attend this year, but I would still like people to register if they are planning to come. It is always good to have an idea of how many might attend. I will also be offering the choice of a paid registration for those that might like to help out a bit financially while receiving an original print as thanks... More about that and more later...

There will soon be a website set-up at the following link. You can check back and register once it becomes operational.


Thanks! I hope to see you this summer!!

It's on my calendar as a strong possibility. I'll ask my better half to chime in too, as she is also a photographer.

Good on you, Bill, for reinstating the event, and the idea to go back to the original format is great. The less arrangements, the less for you to worry about, and the more time you can have to hang out and do some shooting too, and not just be busy worrying about everybody else. I know that in 2008 I came mostly to hang out with you and everybody else that was there. Demos and events are great, but certainly not necessary among creative minds and peers. Conversation and exchange is more than enough.

Thank you!

Thanks, Bill. I look forward to seeing everyone. Is Birchwood still the place? (nice folks, really accomodating...)

I have been waiting with bated breath for this announcement. Now I can unbate my breath. Seriously, this is great news.

Funny, I was just playing my guitar a few minutes ago and thinking about disturbing the peace with Steve at the Birchwood a couple of years ago...

I'm thinking I'll actually be able to make this one - will need to get a little closer to the event but looking good. Will be excited so some old friends and meet some new ones. Thanks for hosting this yet again, Bill.
