Almost 8 months later I was invited back to San Diego to do another meet-up event, and this time I didn't hesitate. Not only that, I invited Mike Padua from ShootFilmCo to join us, and he accepted the invitation (he flew down from LA). Philip Steblay from The Darkroom also came down to join us, as did Adam Ottke from Fstoppers. We had the usually Thursday night meet-up, a members only Friday night dinner, and Saturday morning workshop with a photowalk. It was a busy 3 days for me, which included shooting 4 YouTube videos. I did get time to explore the streets of San Diego as well, notably North Park and City Heights, both along University Avenue. These quick 4 day trips are busy, exhausting, and exciting. In the middle of it all I lost my voice twice from talking too much (in the mornings I wouldn't talk for a couple of hours to rest my voice), and I think I got a bit of a tan. I also have an upcoming collaboration with The Darkroom and Beers and Cameras next month too. A successful trip to SoCal in my books.
I have more to say about this trip but I'll end it here. More articles to come, including my review of the LightPix Labs Q20 flash on my Ricoh GR (all pictures in this article taken with my Ricoh GR). Look for upcoming YouTube videos, check out my Instagram feed for pictures, and check out Beers and Cameras Instagram account for more coverage of the event. Also look out for future projects with everyone mentioned. Thanks for reading and happy shooting!
