Anyone who knows Ken Doo and myself realize at the offset we're slightly different. Make that more fun loving, slightly quirky. Ken's in is mid 40s and I turn 65 next year; we both act like adolescents and that's on a good day!
Ken and I have been friends for sometime now and decided a few years ago to begin hosting a gathering called "Pigs in a Blanket" after a great breakfast place near Carmel. Our first "Pigs" was 2009 when everyone who came met Chris Lawrey of Capture Integration fame. 2010 brought out Doug which we fear scared him for life then 2011 Dave Gallagher decided to add some class to the act. Nothing happened in 2012 and that wasn't because we were on probation - at least that's my story and I'm sticking to it....
2013 brings us back together February 15th to 17th or 18th depending on a plan Ken has up his sleeve. This isn't a workshop but more of a gathering of like mined people. I understand that while Dave Gallagher will be bringing out tech cameras he'll also have other goodies in his bags. We've never charged a dime for this thinking that you get what you pay for. That said - Dave will be presenting a half day class on C1Pro which there will be a $49.00 charge for. There's limited seating for the class and you'll need to contact Dave directly for this.
So if this isn't a "Pigs in a Blanket" then what do we call this? How bout Capture Integrations heads west?
Plan on shooting half a day in and around San Francisco before turning south on the coast with dinner in Half Moon Bay and shooting at Pigeon Point lighthouse at sunset. Saturday and Sunday will be full days and if Ken gets his way we may have a surprise tour on Monday.
Count this as advance warning on what isn't being called "Pigs in a Blanket #4" but will be just as much fun as if it were.
We'll be posting more information shortly. If you're in the Carmel, Monterey, San Francisco area or else where for that matter and want to join us let us know. Just make certain your shots are up to date.....
