    2008 Texas Alt Photo (and anything else) Shindig

    This may be redundant for some, but I wanted to post this here for anyone that might be interested in attending.

    There's gonna be a Texas Photo Get together/Shindig on Oct 24th.

    I put together a small website about the get together, who/what/when/where/etc...

    Take a look.

    Would love to have some fellow Large Formaters there... or pretty much anyone who enjoys photography.
    Pretty much everything is welcome.

    If you've got any questions my contact info is repeated many times over on the above website.

    Hope some of you can make it.

    Hello Matt,
    I guess I am out of touch as this is not redundant for me, and I live right up the road in Wimberley.
    I am definitely interested, even though I don't yet do any alternative photo work.

    I'm staying up the road in Wimberley and my "alternative" photography is film and silver gelatin printing. It all counts!

    Come on down.

    ...but can you do a good version of Sharp Dressed Man or Gimme All Your Lovin'?

    I plan to be there, but I will be staying with my brother in Austin and driving over each day that there are planned discussions, events or outings... I'm excited!

    David, I've run a quick count and my best guess at this point is between 15-20, if all that have indicated they are coming show up (Matt might have better numbers so if he does not post to this, send him and email or PM).

    Its all a guesstimation really. Thinking there will be maybe 20 people +/-.
    There could be 10.... then again there could be 50... I haven't a clue.
    But goin on the responses through email and on the forums, 20 seems a good guess.

    Hope that people can make it... the more the merrier.

    ust a bit of an update.

    Scott Schroeder will be generously demoing the wetplate collodion process for us. Which I'm very grateful to him for doing. - Scott, Ill bring a fresh bottle of collodion and all my glass/chems/supplies so you don't have to burn through all yours. If possible I'll pour some as well and demo some.

    Everything seems to be coming together. There is a local BBQ joint about 2 mins from the house thats gonna provide us with food to devour. Please bring a couple bucks to donate for the food fund ($10 a person maybe?). Also, reminder to bring any beverages you'll wanna consume (cerveza, vino, etc etc). I know I'll be enjoying a few Lone Stars.

    Also, I got bored on friday night and made some Tshirt designs and put them on Cafepress. No profit on my end... just thought people would enjoy them.

    CafePress TX Shindig Tshirts

    For those of you not familiar with Texas history, the "Come and Take a Photo" Tshirt is in reference/spoof to the flag from the Battle of Gonzales.
