Save the Date, Neon Photowalk in Sacramento, October 3, 2008
Photo by Tom Spaulding.
Hot Donkey! We’re doing a neon photowalk in Sacramento on October 3rd.
One of my favorite things to shoot is neon. I’m not sure why I’ve become so obsessed with it but it’s one of the things that I’ve shot the most. So I was super excited to hear about a night neon photowalk that Trevor Carpenter (who runs photowalking.org) is putting on.
Robert Scoble, PhotoCycle producer Rocky Barbanica and I will be joining the photowalk and filming it for an upcoming Photowalking episode over at FastCompany.TV. I’m also excited that Tom Spaulding will be joining us. Tom has one of the best collections of Sacramento neon on the internet today. That’s Tom’s photo up at the top of this post. Check out more of his great Sacramento neon sign photographs from his Sacremento signs set, he’s got 600 of them there.
Of course I’m sure that people will be shooting a lot more than just neon, but Sacramento does have some of the best vintage neon around. So come on out and join us and sign up at the upcoming.org page here. It doesn’t matter what your skill level is, what kind of camera you use, etc. Beginners to pros are welcome, so bring your DSLR, your point and shoot, your Polaroid, your Holga, your camera phone, your tripod, whatever and come hang out and shoot with a bunch of other photographers.
By the way, we are also doing a photowalk in Seattle next Friday night if you can make it.
