Roughly forty confirmed photographers, of various levels from amateur to professional. We’ve pretty much booked up all the rooms at this hotel that was suggested…

So is this is a photography training seminar or just a gathering to shoot a specific site or …? Sounds awesome and like a great way to exchange ideas either way, congrats!October 29, 2011 at 11:01 pm #41762
Plama me too 😉 I’ll make sure and put together an album. It’d be really cool if we can get everyone to contribute to a ‘best of’ with all our favorite shots…
CISS it’s just a ‘hang out and take too many pics’ sort of weekend, but I’m expecting when we’re all sitting around and “talking shop” everyone will learn a thing or two. I know some of the folks that are going would charge $$$ for a weekend if they were hosting it, but that’s not really why we’re going. It’s more about photo community and some spectacular scenery. Kind of like a glorified ‘photo walk’ where people just show up with their cameras.
(Last count, we as a group have 26 of the 31 rooms at some 1/2 star hotel in Beatty, NV booked. It’s promising to be something epic 😀 )October 30, 2011 at 5:20 am #41763lokisbongParticipant
I’m jealous and I’m only gonna be 85 or so miles from you.October 30, 2011 at 6:17 am #41764
Color me jealous.October 30, 2011 at 6:26 am #41765
orionid if you two can get there we have a second double bed at the hotel. I’ll even wear pants 🙂October 30, 2011 at 2:58 pm #41766
I’ll even wear pants 🙂
Well that would make one of us. But seriously, thanks for the offer. Unfortunately, right now I doubt we could make it. I’m still new at work and don’t have any vacation saved up, and unless we can use our vouchers from Alaskan Air, I don’t think we can afford the trip, either.October 30, 2011 at 3:05 pm #41767YoyoParticipant
I can’t say that I’ve ever seen pictures of a 1/2 star hotel. Holiday Inn and the standardization it brought to the American hotel industry are both a blessing and a curse. A lot of character and soul has vanished.October 30, 2011 at 3:06 pm #41768KestranaParticipant
Yeah it would be an awesome trip but it’s not in the cards for us atm. We’ll be on the West Coast at some point though, since my dad lives in Portland.November 1, 2011 at 12:24 am #41769
orionid and [/b]kestrana[/b] Bummer, but totally understandable. Sounds like it’s going to be pretty awesome.
Give us a heads-up if you make it out to the Proper Coast, or at least try and make it to Vegas this time 😉
Yoyo Imagine a road-side hotel in the middle of the desert – town has maybe 1000 people – that caters to bikers and truckers….November 1, 2011 at 2:18 am #41770
I think I heard a song about that hotel once. Something about, oh hell, I lost it at colitas.November 1, 2011 at 12:21 pm #41771FarktographerParticipant
Wow, I haven’t been to Death Valley in about 15 years. I remember it being an awesome sight, but also really, really boring for me as a pre-teen at the time.
