Back and at work on things. Really excited to read the news of those coming and that everyone is finding somewhere to stay. Great to see that Cody is coming! And it is great news from Silke and Dan about Andrew Moore! Pretty controversial guy around my parts and it will be great to meet him if he makes it.
If you've registered, you should have just received another newsletter... nothing big, just telling you I'm on it. Jeff and Eva have kindly offered to handle the print exchange. Jeff already mentioned that and details will be coming. Just make sure to bring a finished print to exchange and you'll be in.
I'm hearing that hotels are filling up. This is great news for everyone up there, but I want to make sure no one gets shut out. Great to hear that Vinny's folks place is getting used and there are others as well. I will look into other properties that people can share if need be. Let me know if you're having a hard time.
That's it from me for now. Look for more as I have it. If anyone missed the Newsletter, a link is here. If you did miss it and registered, either your email is wrong as registered or I'm being filtered.
I'm very happy that I'm gong to make it back to photostock for the first time since 2008. I'll be at the Birchwood Tuesday - Thursday, but exiled to Petoskey for Friday and Saturday. I'm looking forward to it!
Ok, letter sent to all interested in doing a demo or presentation. If I've talked to you about this and you don't get one. Let me know.
Yet another update...
Thanks to Dan and Silke, we will have a model on hand for people to work with on a scheduled basis. There is a fee involved with this and the procedure will be outlined in the next newsletter. The model will be available for 1 hour blocks of time and the schedule will be limited.
Also, thanks to Dan, I've been in contact with Andrew Moore of "Detroit Disassembled" fame. He is in fact coming this year and has graciously agreed to do one of our informal presentations. I'll let you know more as it develops, but I hope you'll join me in a big photostock welcome for Andrew. It will be a treat to have him.
I'm also pleased to announce that our very own Suzanne Revy will be giving a presentation this year as well. Finally meeting Suzanne after all these years is going to be a thrill for me, not to mention seeing her wonderful body of work. I know a lot of us have never had the chance and it will be great t have her here this year.
To top it all off, there will be demonstrations from Mark Fisher on his experiences with lith printing, a pin-up shooting demo led by James Mullineaux as well as demos in the wet plate and polymer photogravure processes. Several other surprises are in the works as well so stay tuned. Another newsletter will be going out soon to all who have registered. If not registered you can do it HERE.
Very cool, Bill, thanks for organizing and inviting me to share my work. Really looking forward to it, and to finally meeting you as well.
Looks likecit will be a fun filled time!! Really looking forward to it!
Just a note to say that I've worked out a 40% discount with Andrew Moore's book distributor on copies of Detroit Disassembled. They would have to be pre-ordered for this discount and I will have to get a count soon. I'll soon send out a newsletter to all who have registered and in it will be a way to order a copy. I'll have them at the event so that you can have them signed.
