photographers meet

Team Themes for Geekfest!

Here they are:

The Lovers: Will show us the LOVE!

The Diptychs: Will come in pairs!

The Authoritarians: Will kick your ass!

The Anarchists: Will do whatever the hell they want!

The Gawkers: Will show us what they see!

The Artists: Will create!

NOTE: Themes are meant as starting point for teams to decide what they want to do. They are wide open for interpretation. They may even more of a guide for editing that shooting...or not. If you have a strong feeling about which team you want to be on, please email me at

We have not decided which team leaders will lead each team. But, I can't help but Rubenstein is a natural to lead The Lovers.

NPPA OPP: The Other Photog Pilgrimage

The Anti-Geekfest may very well be The NPPA National Convention. Meetings over rules, theory, rules, what have you. (I actually have no idea what the NPPA truly does anymore. Do THEY? Can't imagine they'll have kegs of micro brew and air hockey...)

But if you're thinking of making the pilgrimage to Portland for GF PDX June 7-10, it may be worth your while to come out a week earlier as The Rose City also hosts the NPPA bruhaha May 30-June 2. You might even be able to convince your bosses to pay for the entire trip by attending "an official" workshop.

The only reason why I'm thinking of going (other than I live here) is that Carolyn Cole & Lauren Greenfield will be in attendance. (And I heard that they're coming to P-town to meet me and my peeps.) There's also a multi-media workshop, presided by Finch (seen here) and fellow fellows.

For the latest, check out REGULARLY as they slowly piece together their plan of attack.
