Now that I'm fully moved in, have the studio set up, and the pool table installed, it's time to invite the community over.  I'm having a get-together on Saturday, July 11th for anyone in the area who is interested.

I'd like to see models, photographers, makeup artists and stylists attend.  I have a complete studio with a variety of professional lighting options; anyone wishing to use it is welcome to.

The festivities begin at 2:00 PM, and I'll be welcoming attendees until at least 6:00 PM.  We can go later if there is interest, or if people are having a good time shooting.

If you have portfolios, please bring them.  This should be an opportunity for networking, shooting, and sharpening your pool game.

Those interested please PM me.

I've gotten some more people responding in PMs.  Every model so far is wonderful, and the the photographers include some of the best in the city.   I'm really looking forward to meeting all of you.

Grumble.

I'm actually IN VEGAS from Monday-Saturday, but my flight leaves at 9am Saturday morning. I'm going to get my schedule when I arrive on Monday, though, so let's see if getting lunch or dinner while I'm in town is a possibility. I'm at the mercy of the competition schedule.

(My daughter is in the WCDE Nationals along with her studio, so I'm along both as a dad and...)

Please do.  Right now I have more models than photographers who have confirmed attendance, including some very high quality ones.  I like your work, you'd fit right in.

Flights can be changed . . . especially when you have more money than God.

Single word bumping posts? See, what you really need to do is write a short story. Such as how is it that strippers can climb a pole upside down, while doing the splits, spinning,, with no clothes on, when I can barely climb a rope.

Oh wait, off topic. Never mind.

Truth be told, I already have 22 confirmed attendees, so I can't really handle a lot more.  I've got a pretty good sized place, but it does have its limits smile

It was great to put faces to names!

For the models who decided not to attend: you missed a wonderful opportunity to work with some excellent photographers. (And me and some other OK photographers, too.)

All I can do is shake my head at that turnout...sigh
But I did get turned on to some hot new cheeses and cracker snacks by Roger. Met some new friends and learned a bit about the business end of things. I'm definitely better suited on the "purely for art and beauty" end of photography. Off to get groceries on base and pick up some cool cheese. smile

We should have a midnight shoot at Roger's. We hire a couple mua's and models and shoot while Roger sleeps. We'll bring our own cheese and sodas next time. What do you think Nadira?

Thinking mid August. Any suggestions for a date?
