When Dinoczars and I organized January’s Epic Toy Photo Safari in Las Vegas we set in motion something bigger than just your regular run of the mill photo walk. We gathered together an amazing selection of likeminded plastic photographers from across western North America for an incredible weekend. Little did we know where it would lead when we repeated this grand experiment in March while Vesa and Me2 where visiting me in Seattle. Now it seems that the old continent has been left out in the cold and wants to get in on all this awesome toy photography goodness.
I know my good old counterpart (Me2) has been talking to some of you in Europe about creating a photo walk on the old continent, and so I have decided to turn ideas and vague plans into a reality. I will be journeying to the old continent and we will be having our own Epic Toy Photography Safari on the other side of the pond, in Stockholm, Sweden on August 29th.
All the details are still unclear and Me2 and Crew are working on these exact details (it looks awesome, we just need to get our proverbial ducks in order) but for now, we can already tell you this: reserve the date and be ready to meet me and the rest of the creative collective in Stockholm on Saturday August 29th.
This event will be open to any toy photographer who is interested in shooting with like minded people for a day. If past photo safaris are any indication we will share toys, trade photography tips and tricks, create group shots and generally geek out as only a group of toy photographers can. In short, it will be EPIC!
I hear rumors that Balakov and Me2 will be teaming up to do an advanced class with strobes. Seriously, could this get any cooler?
So save the date, August 29th, and join Me2, Avanaut, Balakov myself and few other intrepid toy photographers for this special weekend. If you have any interest in attending please let us know in the comments so we can plan accommodations.
We will post periodic updates to let you know how our plans are developing. In the mean time, I hope you will check your calendar and begin making plans to join us in Stockholm on August 29th.
This event is family friendly. Me2, Avanaut and myself will all have family in attendance.
If you have any questions please leave them in the comments or contact me directly.
