Ok, so Tyler, Holgs, Opla, Micheal and myself. Hmm... there's something familiar about that lineup!

Paha_L and Mikhail, you'll have to excuse the in-jokes about swimming for reflectors.

I had intentions of playing a more active role in sourcing models, but Tyler has generously agreed to pick up the slack. I propose we all buy Tyler a pint of Guinness after the shoot to express our gratitude! ;)  ...sorry, another in-joke.

Looks like we're getting a healthy crowd together for this one.  Andres is also currently booked to be there in time for the shoot, but there's a high chance he'll have to change his plans and arrive the day after.  I'll keep you all posted. 

Regarding hotels, the Burlington isn't too far from the city center.  It's either a healthy walk or a cheap taxi ride.  We haven't planned locations yet anyway, so I wouldn't hold off booking a hotel just to be close to the shoot.

Holgs, it's my understanding that hotels and flights are cheapest when you book well in advance, then get more expensive closer to the date, then drop down at the last minute if there's still availability.  As the professional traveler, I'll take your advice if you tell me otherwise, but isn't it better to book as far in advance as you can? 

I seem to be on a roll convincing people to attend events, raise ad rates and go exclusive lately, so I'm now going to focus my attention on having you (Holgs) put 190 towards the conference. Given your income is about to shoot to a new level, I think it's an easy investment.  ;)  Ok, I'll stop with the in-jokes now, I promise. Nobody else is reading this thread anyway, right?

Just a couple of suggestions on what to see in Dublin

Take the DART (commuter rail) along the coast, costs about 5 and it give a lovely view of the coast.
The Guinness Store House (which is a museum to Guinness) and you can pour (and drink) your own pint of Guinness, plus they have a fabulous rooftop bar.

I don't have problems with the jokes, but the date is a problem! I am really sorry I have to miss the event as I will arrive in the morning of the 8th :(
(no I can't re-schedule that)

Ok, flight booked, now, where to stay?
Holgs, anything interesting yet?
Burlington seems bookable for around 250 for four nights, not sure yet weather to get a hotel nearer to the center.

Allright, two shoots are planned for June 7th

Casual Shoot: June. 7, 2010 @10:00-14:00
Business Shoot: June 7, 2010 @ 16:00-20:00

I have the second shoot so late because in Cannes we ran into problems of there being too little time between the first and second shoot.  We will also get a little more golden hour sunlight shooting a little later.

I have emailed the first 8 models (4 for each shoot) and waiting for confirmation that they can make it.  If I manage to find 5 models for each shoot I'll probably book that many so at least 3-4 (hopefuly 5) show up.  If we end up being 5 or more shooters it will be nice to have the extra models.  If we end up with 5 models we'll have a nice group.. it'll cost a bit more but it'll be worth it.   I am not actively booking couples so if one model doesn't come it should only be one model that doesn't come.. not two.  I am also having problems finding guys, so we may end up with one group of all women ..... (girl's day on the town theme???)..  Payment to the models is the same as last time, 100 Euro/model which we'll split evenly amongst everyone who shoots.

I also tried to find models in the 40-80 age category, but that is proving to be very difficult.  They are once again 20-35 aged people.

Again, people can take part in whatever shoot (or both) they want.

Great, thanks. Pity about the older models tough. Can you post links to the models as you did in the Cannes thread?

Alright, more shoot details are confirmed.

Meeting Location for both shoots:
Meet at St. Stephens Green  just inside Fusilier's Arch on the grass. (check on google maps if you are not sure where it is)
Once we are finished with the paper work we will start shooting right away in the park.  We will plan to later walk down to Trinity College (10 minutes walk) and shoot a little there, then if time permits walk to the river and Ha'penny bridge (10 more minutes walking) or elsewhere along the river or that area of the city.

Hopefully we will have enough models to split into two different groups.  We'll shoot close to each other and switch models around and do some group shots with all the models.  We will plan to share lighting equipment but when shooting in smaller groups you will only be guaranteed to be making use of the equipment you bring yourself.... so bring what you have.

REMEMBER TO BRING
  • Lighting equipment you want to use ... strobes, reflector, other things...
  • Your model releases
  • Pocket full of cash
  • Camera gear obviously
  • Props you might want to use

So whose all shooting anyhow?

Lee Torrens
Holger
Opla
michaelo
Praha_L

Me

Is everyone on the list coming?  I have put the people in bold I think have confirmed in the last week or so.  Anyone else??  If we are 8 shooters we could probably stand to have even more models.

Sounds great, I'm looking forward to meeting you.  It'll be great to have another local shooting with us :)  

It looks like we should have a good model turn out if most of them show up.  I believe I have 6 confirmed for the first shoot and 4 for the second shoot.  I could have more for the second shoot already but for some reason I am getting mostly men.  Right now there are 3 men and 1 woman for the second shoot, It would be nice to get 3 men and 2 women at least.


I just sent you a test SMS, did you get it? I hope you don't sleep by your phone with it turned on. :S I think it is always a mess trying to figure out the 1's and 0's and +'s trying to sms to a different country.

I get to Dublin on Sunday about midday, so if anyone is around it would be nice to catch up for a beverage - alcoholic or otherwise! As usual... I won't have a phone though... 

Thanks very much Tyler for your working in organising, yet again!

Got your messages Oliver and Sarah.  I was going to get a dublin number when I arrive but I realized later the stores will be closed so I'm not so sure now.

Anyhow, do you want to pick a place Sarah?

The weather forecast is not looking good for Monday though :(  If it is pouring rain or even slightly constantly raining, we won't be shooting.  We dont' really have much choice.  perhaps some of the models will be free another day but no guarantees.
