Oh no. Here comes trouble - Amy Mayes and I checked out Photoville yesterday afternoon. It's immediately better than last year since they scheduled for Fall (Whew! Last year was in the middle of summer and way too hot to be walking in and out of shipping containers contemplating work - sorry, had to admit it).
We started off with the Luminance talk, Bring Your C Game (Creativity) to an Editorial Shoot with RollingStone's Deborah Dragon and photographer Peter Yang. It was a behind the scenes look at some of Peter's celebrity portraits for the magazine. Super nice guy too!
Photo exhibits are in the main area. Like last year, each is in shipping container. Prints are held up by magnets. Hip and eco-friendly! There's lots to see, so plan on spending a few hours hanging out, a few shows here, maybe a beer, a couple more shipping containers, maybe another beer and snack. We blazed through, which I really wish I hadn't, but you do what you can, no? I'm off to a wedding this weekend, so can't come back.
If you're zipping through, check out the following:
