D. M. Gremlin Studios Monthly Open House Night
Friday Mar 29 ~~ 6pm-9pm

Studio 1st-timers: RSVP REQUIRED to studio@dm-gremlin.com by 6pm Mar 27.

For FIVE years running D. M. Gremlin Studios in Long Beach CA has opened its doors one evening a month for this free photography and art community event .

Please join us once again in March for industry networking, portfolio sharing, and great company  Tour the facilities of our $15-$20/hr rental photography studios, see the studios in action, and take part in open TFCD photo shooting.

The studio is open for casual group photo shooting during the events, and we've had some fantastic shoots take place during Open House, from planned productions to spontaneous collaborations.  Visit our studio forums to see some of the images created within past Open House events!

RSVP's for studio first-timers are due to studio@dm-gremlin.com by 6pm on Wed Mar 27. Please include your full name and the full name of each guest who will be attending, along with a brief introduction as to whether each person is a photographer, model, stylist, friend/family member, etc. This event is free and open to all, but we do need to plan in advance for who and how many people will be in the studio for the evening.

We look forward to greeting returning friends, and meeting many wonderful models, photographers, and stylists in March!

Looking forward to seeing people back in March!  We had a fun little hangout in February, and have plenty of time for everyone to set the date in their schedules this month!

3 hours is plenty of time to come in after work, enjoy some company, do a little shooting, see the studio, and have us an enjoyable time for the event - the month is underway, so I'm excited for the RSVP's to come in!

Feel free to invite/bring friends - all they have to do is send their RSVP to the studio if they've never been. Everyone is welcome, with RSVP 48 hours in advance, so we know how big an event we're planning for!

Great musician jam here last night... this is a super creative space, not just for photography, and we love introducing artists in all the various aspects!

If my camera gear makes it back from Italy, I'll be there.  If not, just figure I'll be battling severe depression and may not be fit for human company.

I hope you get your gear back, regardless. Or some serious insurance money!

You can come here for comfort and commiseration, camera or not, though!

Yay, got my gear back!  Working on a shift that will allow me to make it to the open house.

FANTASTIC!  I was just talking with a keyboard player last night who has a really rare Clavinet, and he was saying when they fly, the keyboard actually gets a seat of its own, rather than travel in cargo, because it can't even be replaced if lost... reminded me of you waiting to get your gear back, and I am SO glad you did - hope to see you next Friday!!

The open house is always fun.  I wish I wasn't so far away.  I'd love to come to one.

I intended to make it last month, too, but we had a last minute glitch that kept me at work until almost 9. sad

Will definitely be trying to attend this time, but we've got another code push that Friday, so it's a gamble.

Great shot Cal - not sure if I'd seen this one. We've had SO many awesome shoots within the events over the years - almost always spontaneous, whatever the creativity of the participants generates!

Managed to snag a day shift for Friday.  Now, if the news can only behave itself and let me get off work on time, I should (fingers crossed) be there.

It's late in the week, but I've been under the weather since last Friday.  Here are a few of the shots from the "flour" experiment.

Bryan, SO awesome!  Great to see the results, and the mess outside is no problem, that's why we did this part outside!

My FAVORITE is this one, the first one you posted!
