I would like to spice it up more. I'm sorry to say that we couldn't do the beach shoot workshop since they only give permits during weekdays. But here is the backbreaker...

If you sign up to our July 17th shoot, we will have a raffle for 10 lucky photogs to be invited with either Karl or myself at a private beach shoot...for FREE!!!! Don't worry, the regulars will not participate in the raffle. This is more for the new workshop attendies and maybe the past attendies who I have not been invited at the beach.

We will have the Lambo back and hopefully we will have another exotic car at the shoot.

And talk about the food...

I'll come to LA in July but I have a wedding to shoot on July 17 in OK. Can I still pay for the group shoot but let me in for the beach shoot? (if before 17th) smile

Our events already speak for themselves. We don't hate. We are only competing with our previous events. I only think on how to improve the prior event and how the attending photogs and models would enjoy themselves.

Good to hear this so leave it at that!!

Dude! I got family in Norman!  Network at the next shoot.  The crew at the shoots is always willing to help people out.  We coulda given you rides, place to crash, and save some dough for the shoot!  Yea, we are kinda lucky with that aspect though. 

See ya at shoot!

The model line always forms after spots are sold out, that's gotta say something about the events!

And honestly, where else do you meet a better group of guys willing to teach each other there techniques, share lighting, pocket wizards, and don't hog models during group time (well except when Drew is shooting Matus' boobies for a so called "cover").  Attending these shoots has done absolutely nothing more than improve my portfolio and knowledge of photography.

And what's with this MM drama, seriously lame!

DanTheMan thanks again for sharing your technique during the shoot. Brian for sharing the light. Dan, Brian, Quan, Mark and many more fellow photogs (sorry I don't remember names and too many to mention). It was my first time attending such event and gained a lot!

wow what a small world! Sucks that I can't attend the 17th workshop coz I have a wedding to shoot that day in Oklahoma City but network for sure next time we meet.

Never shoot on the beach before, would love to go take a look this time in CA

Drew, Karl, Mark@Bright Candle or anyone, if you need a caddy, I can! big_smile
