Got any plans for Labor Day? Troy Paiva and I are hosting a Night Photography and Light Painting workshop on Saturday, September 5th!
Location: Big M Automotive, a classic car dismantling yard in Williams, CA, about a 2 hour drive North of San Francisco [Map]. Specializing in ’50s Mercurys, the yard is also packed with big finned Chryslers, DeSotos, Dodges and rare late 50s GM cars. The images linked below show how insanely cool this place is better than any words can.
There will be 2 hours of afternoon / evening shooting, light painting demos, and 5 1/2 hours of night shooting.
As always, we’ll be working with you, hands on, demonstrating techniques to make your images better. Because this workshop is only one night, without any classroom time, we recommend this workshop for photographers with some . . . even just a little . . . night shooting experience. And be prepared for a hot night with some bugs. There are numerous motels in town, including everyone’s favorite, Motel 6.
There will be only 7 students in this workshop. The workshop announcement went out to our email list this morning, and spaces are starting to fill up. Our Pearsonville workshop sold out in one day — so act fast to grab a spot!
The price is $200 (check or paypal). Email me for payment details.
Update 8/14/2009: The workshop is full — contact me if you’d like to be on the waiting list.
The Art Show and Full Moon Shoot
On Friday September 4th, Troy Paiva, Mike Hows, and I will be celebrating the opening of an art show devoted to night photographs of Big M Automotive. The art show is at the fabulous Lucky Ju Ju Pinball Art Gallery in Alameda, CA. Stop by the art opening between 7-10 p.m., and then go night shooting under the full moon at the nearby Alameda Naval Air Station. We’ll provide the art, snacks, and a map of where to shoot!
More information about the art show here. Hope to see you at the show, and the workshop!
