Photo Flood Saint Louis

Despite everything else that I have going on, I’ve decided to stretch myself even thinner by embarking upon a new photography venture, Photo Flood Saint Louis. The concept is simple, I select a section of the city with parameters, and a gaggle of local and/or visiting photographers (including myself) descends on the area, all at once, to document all of its nooks and crannies. Afterwards, we all meet up to drink, eat, and talk about the experience. About a week later, after all of the images have been processed and turned in, myself and two volunteer judges go through the images and select the 10-20 best photos to post on the blog (linked above).

Last saturday night was the kickoff event which took place in the downtown core. We shot for two hours and then reconvened at an excellent tap-house nearby (the meeting point is always in or near the area where we shoot). Photographers brought a range of gear, from iPhones to TLRs. I, for one, had a fantastic time; expect to see those images on the Photo Flood STL site soon.

Our next event is scheduled for Saturday, September 15th, at 8am, and promises to be spectacular! Contact me on Facebook if you’d like to take part.
