New York - NYCDPCGTG

A few people asked me to organize a GTG here in NYC and I want to see if there's any interest before I move on the thought. Sounds like a few folks from Canada, Louisiana, NJ, Califo, Europe etc. are already "IN" BUT I still need to figure things out regarding the where's, what's and how's of it all. It could be a monster event so again, before I jump into the fire let me know your thoughts, concerns, expectations and all the jazz...

The weekend of June 5th (Friday, Saturday, Sunday)? After Memorial Day. Saturday June 5th will be the official main day.

11/28/2009 02:26:51 PM · #4
It's a definite possibility for me ... depending on time.

LOVE love love that you would be willing to take that on Steve...
Would you want to do something like The European Nude and glamour workshops.. and subsequently the Europe meets Canada workshop like we did here??!!

Make it an actual event and walk around?? Whats your vision.. what sort of support would you need and YES.. I'm in. I'm absolutely In..and I'll help in any way I can.. (having helped organize one of these monsters.. I have an appreciation for the work, energy and am still enthusiastic.. Yes.. perhaps a wee bit insane too ;) haha..

Love the idea of some street stuff thrown in there..which of course is your speciality ;)
Idea's for workshops? Dates? Typically July has seemed to work in the past??

YEs.. Yes Yes.. :)

I would be interested in another New York City GTG we dont do them here much anymore.... Hey 21_N.gif pawdrix the Soho area has alot of photo opportunities, I actually had a little photo tour for another group last summer and we got some great shots of all the graffiti and little shops. Also you cant forget Central Park.

But when would this be, lol cause its getting cold now.

Yes.
11/29/2009 03:00:58 AM · #9
I can't attend this, but just to throw an idea in... You don't need a studio. You could also get some hawt models (gilr & boy) and do some street model shoots with reflector tutorials, and fill flash and stuff like that.

Would love to come, but my summer plans contain a lot of diapers filled with shit that need to be changed.
11/29/2009 03:37:44 AM · #10
I've got airmiles to use up, so depending when this is, I would definitely be interested
11/29/2009 07:23:10 AM · #11
I'll be there, depending on the timing...
11/29/2009 08:09:20 AM · #12
Yes, would love to join a walk around.
11/29/2009 09:21:22 AM · #13
Yes, I would love to attend. It'll depend on the date, but with a little notice, I'm sure I can work my schedule around it! Sounds like FUN! :-)
11/29/2009 02:20:38 PM · #14
We would love to join up, we aren't sure yet because it's pretty far ahead and never know what happens..
But I will follow this thread :-)
11/29/2009 04:31:14 PM · #15

Hawt or even non-hawt street model shoots require City permits. Not difficult to get but hard to manage and organize. There are plenty of photo studios in NYC that rent out at daily rates of $700 or so plus or minus equipment.
11/29/2009 06:22:49 PM · #18
keep me posted depends when
11/29/2009 06:37:08 PM · #19
I'd be in! Keep me in the loop.
11/29/2009 07:12:54 PM · #20
I'd be interested, if my schedule allows.
11/29/2009 10:16:09 PM · #21
I live in the city, keep me posted...
11/29/2009 10:58:12 PM · #22
Possibly...when?

Is this in any way, a pilgrimage to B&H?

This is good. At least I know there's interest...

Personally, I don't want to charge anything or deal with money. The studio/model type of things can be done anywhere, whereas the Streets of NYC and what's happening around town is the show. We shouldn't need more than that, IMO. I thought we could do a few nice walking tours and end up wherever...let's say Chinatown for shooting and then Dim Sum. Perhaps, Midtown/Times Square into Central Park and then drinks and food at The Boathouse...or Union Square into Greenwich Village for Jazz and eaties...?

I've been giving Street Photography Workshops about every three weeks which are a blast and I can see this being set-up the same way only, no charge...just for kicks.

The end of June seems like a good time...?

I might be interested as well.... depends on timing and that four letter work thing.....

Hey pawdrix that time around June sounds good, and maybe walking from ChinaTown to Soho since they are right next to one another, there are alot of good photo opps in both
