Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar
Chris Lawson, Photographer
Centennial | CO | USA | Posted: 12:28 AM on 12.01.04
->> I'm headed out to Atlanta on Thursday to participate in the Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar and hoped to meet up with some friendly faces while I'm there.
Soooo...who's planning on going? I know a few of our own members are doing some presentations that I'm excited to hear and participate in.

It should be an educational couple of days that I certainly can use to refill my inspiration and motivation tanks.

Chime in if you're going to be attending and maybe we can get a little something together for drinks or dinner.

->> The FABULOUS Robert Seale will be leading the portrait and lighting class on Friday ... a MUST-SEE in my humble opinion.

And the always entertaining Ronal Taniwaki will be in attendance with the Nikon crew.

I believe Mister Jeff Snyder of Penn Camera will be in the trade show.

And Jody Grober from Roberts Distributors is usually in the trade show as well.

I have gone several times and always have a nice time ... but duty calls this weekend: the HUGE USC - UCLA game is Saturday and a very big NFL game is Sunday, Denver at the (never thought I'd say this) FIRST PLACE Chargers.

Have a great time in Atlanta ... make sure to stop by Daddy Dz Rib Joynt (264 Memorial Drive) on the way from Hartsfield to the Marriott --- best 'Q in town. Beats Dr. Hoggly Woggly Tyler Texas BBQ in the San Fernando Valley ... that's for sure! (You reading this Ron???)

Mahalo!

Sorry I'll miss you! There is always the Sports Shooter University in Feb. My application is sent...

Have good fun at the Broncos/Chargers game...should be a good one!

I gotta shoot some features Friday afternoon for our Saturday paper featuring the the SEC championship game and shoot it on Saturday... So I guess Friday night is my only chance to see you guys... Our photo editor Mark Christian will set up a table in the porfolio session Friday night... If you're looking for a job/internship at the Tennessean, this is your chance to talk with him... Go Vols!!!!

->> Looks like we have a pretty good contingent so far. I'm stoked!

It sounds like we could probably plan something informal for both nights of the seminar. I don't really know if there is any place close to do dinner or drinks outside of the hotel, but Hassel might know since he lives in the Atlanta area.

I'll check back later this afternoon to see if we've picked up anymore and then we'll try to firm something up.

Looking forward to seeing and meeting everyone!

Any one know if NPS or CPS will be there to clean/fix gear?

My sensors are mighty dusty...

->> I will be leaving on Thursday with fellow SS.com members Autumn Cruz and Willie Allen Jr. I have been dreaming of hearing Bruce Davidson talk ever since he canceled a lecture at my college a few years ago. He's THE man. I don't think anyone's work inspired me to pursue photography as a profession as much as his did. Hopefully I enrolled soon enough to be included in his workshop.

Hope to meet some of you guys there.

Your right Edmund, Bruce Davidson is the man.

I'm also looking forward to meeting some of you guys.

->> Hey People,

Myself and 2 other Canadians are headed down, actually leaving in about 10 minutes, we are driving the 1500 km or so in one shot, from Toronto. (Its not so bad, seeing that the 3 of us that are coming were all members of the group that drove from Toronto to LA 5000 km/2500 miles in 45 hours stright to the 2003 Luau).

So hopefully we'll see you there, and can't wait to learn as much as possible.

If you didn't pack one, maybe Ronal will rent you one like he does at the Workshop & Luau!

Mahalo!

Robert Hanashiro.


P.S. --- Oh yeah, Chris ... we will see you in Feb.!
