So many great photographers there, and next year I will bring prints. Thanks for posting the images, Marc. So fun seeing things all over again! I did put together (and am still adding to) a folder with images from those fun 4 days here: http://picasaweb.google.com/mfobrien/2008Photostock
I'm back up at the place this week and I have to say I miss all the activity. I woke up this morning and headed up to the firecircle... no one there!!!
I'm glad to have been able to contribute in some way. I'll do better next year (no color). Bill, I can send you the promised CD tomorrow. Should I send it to Van Rd?
Matt, I wish you a great (and safe) trip home, and I hope you get some memorable photos on the way, too. It was really great to meet you.
James, thanks for your pics of Jamie, the group and the gloves.
JD,...you're just going to have to make your way over to Bill's next year. In saying that, however, I feel bad I can't make it to your "Urban Night Photography" workshop http://www.elevatorworkshops.com/night.shtml ,...but, there's a plug for it anyway.
Nicole, this was quite a trip for you! Thanks for sacrificing your family life back home to spend time with us. 68 hours one way?!!! Holy vegemite!
Having a get-together in Australia would be awesome, though. I'm only good for one overseas trip a year and next year is already planned (Europe in August). Perhaps if enough of us Yankee APUG'rs go, we could get some kind of group rate to go down under. Nothing's impossible.
Dan (FirePhoto), that is exactly how I hoped everyone would view the images! And it really works well with music.
Thanks for all the other comments and I can't wait for the next get-together,...the Northern Minnesota Fall Gathering in September! If I can, I'll also try for the Northern Ohio gathering, too.
Nice pics, Mark! Except for that one.....why'd you put my head on that dudes body?
i look forward to meeting you suzanne. there was ALOT of testosterone but what a great group of guys! looking at all the snapshots from marc and mark has been fun. i wish i had been there for the presentation jamie gave and that night of portfolio sharing. i see from the snapshots just how much i missed. next year i think i will camp onsite so i can just crawl into bed instead of driving back to a motel...or maybe ONE nite in a motel for a shower at least. it feels great to be inspired again, on so many levels...
Suzanne! Yes! We need more women. The ones that have come have been real troopers dealing with all of us guys.
Marc! Very much looking forward to the disc as here on dial-up (ugh) I haven't been able to see the complete set. the thumbs look fantastic though. Yes... you can send to the Van Rd. address. Thank you again!
