I leave for San Fransisco on Friday morning at stupid O’clock. First stop on my vist will be to Phoot Camp for the weekend. Phoot Camp is a gathering of 50 photographers from all over where we get together and get creative. Results of Phoot Camp will appear on the Phoot Camp website once its over.
On Monday the 12th at 7:30pm I will be given a short talk and signing copys of Hot Shots at the Book Smith. The talk is called “From casual snapper to published author, a tale of flickr, shoes and serendipity”. If you are worried that I am going to bore the paints off you Flickr has kindly offered to provide wine and nibbles for everyone, this should help ease yourself into my talk. I have set up a Facebook event page and Upcoming page for the Book Smith event.
There is also going to be a 2nd book signing at Chronicle Books on Thursday the 15th of October at 6–8pm. There will be wine and nibbles too, this time supplied by Chronicle books. It will be more of a meet the author low key type of affair.
Chronicle Books is at:
680 Second Street
I am also running my photography course twice while am in town, once on Thursday 15th to Friday 16th of October and then Saturday 17th to Sunday 18th of October. The cost is $295 for 2 days. There are still a couple of places left on both, for more info on the course check the Hot Shots course page. Mag Cloud have kindly offered 25% off to all attendees on their first magazine purchase. Mag Cloud allows any one to design and publish their own magazine, to find out more about it read my latest blog post about the recent publication “Strange Light” on my here.
