Photocamp UT ’09

Photocamp Utah ’09 was a huge success, the event itself sold out several weeks before with over 350 people attending down at East Bay Studios. The event was targeted at anybody with an interest in photography from the absolute beginner to the advanced users who have been shooting for several years but who still want to learn. It was divided into four main seminar time slots, each with 3 possible seminars to attend during each slot giving a nice grand total of 12 main presentation options, minus the keynotes and earlybird presentations.

For me personally, I was most interested in the printing seminar. As a student I don’t take much time or money to go out and make prints of my images, which is really something I should be doing on a more regular basis. Interestingly, this particular seminar covered more of the specifics of printing images at home, from setting up the printer, talking about the kinds of printers out there, ink, paper types, color profiles and so on. It was really cool to take a look at what can be accomplished from home, and having the ability to get excellent, semi instant results out of your printing is something that would make it a valuable and viable option for me to proof and display my work.

Of course, at a photo camp, most people bring there cameras, me being no exception. Here’s a few shots:

Photowalking Utah


After after having dropped of the map, and essentially vanished out of site from most people, I really needed to get back on the ball and start posting again. I’m working on a new site that will hopefully come out before july or august, but knowing how I tend to guess wrong, it may be later than that.

So here’s some pictures from a Photowalk I went on. Enjoy!

Photowalking Temple Square Utah

For those of you near Salt lake city there was a Photowalk of Temple Square, we had around 15 people there at night in mid December … (read COLD)… the lights were amazing, and despite the cold I had a great time.

As a forward heads up, last I heard there should be a meeting on the 12th of January, some of the group are going to bring some studio lights and pocket wizards and setup a studio lighting try-it-yourself in Draper. According to Rich Legg who arranged to use the Gateway community church sanctuary for the meeting, there will also be a gear sharing table for people to come and try out other cameras, lenses, and other little photographic toy’s plus about 5 models to play with the lighting on.  Should be a great time to come, experiment and learn.  Hope to see you there!
