On Friday, November 15th, 2008, Slideluck Potshow is teaming up with
FotoWeek DC what promises to be a fantastic evening: Slideluck Potshow DC
III. Please join us for another delicious potluck and a riveting slideshow
at FotoWeek Central!
Slideluck Potshow is a non-profit arts organization that provides an
opportunity for artists and arts-appreciators to gather around food,
friends, and artwork for an unforgettable night. The evening begins with a
couple hours of mingling and dining on the home-cooked delights of those
who attend, and then the lights are dimmed, the crowd is hushed, and a
spectacular slideshow commences. Please help us kick-off FotoWeek with an
engaging, unique, and fun evening!
Submit your artwork for Slideluck Potshow DC III. This slideshow will
feature emerging and established DC-area photographers and artists along
with a selection of international work. Photojournalists, painters,
fashion and fine-art photographers all present work alongside one another
in a relaxed and spirited atmosphere. We are currently seeking cohesive,
creative, and thought-provoking submissions. Please visit the Slideluck
Potshow website (

The week of November 15-22, 2008 will mark the launch of FotoWeek DC, the
first annual gathering of a diverse and wide-ranging photography community
in the nation’s capital, including photographers, museums, universities and
all those involved in the profession across the metro DC area, including
Virginia and Maryland. Much like Slideluck Potshow, FotoWeek DC seeks to
bring together all photographers and imaging professionals from every
discipline to join with the public in celebration of the medium.
So get those submissions in by November 5th, then whip up your famous
seven-layer dip, lobster ravioli, papaya salad, honey-glazed ham, or
raspberry cheesecake and come check out a slammin’ slideshow!
Thank you for your time. We look forward to seeing you and yours on
November 15th. Spread the word! Good times guaranteed.
Wedding photography guru Greg Gibson photographed the Panteneiro Cowboys of Brazil. There are some fluffy wildlife pictures in the beginning, then the cowboys.The highlights show is about 13 min but you can click on the pics to make them move along faster. Really gorgeous light on them.
Thank you to all the photographers and online viewers participating in Ten:15 (www.ten15am.com).
We want to celebrate by doing something different from our usual daily routine of inviting people to share an image taken at 10:15 AM their local time.
On Oct 15 (10/15), we’re asking our global network of friends, and anyone else who might be interested in the idea, to take a photograph at the exact same minute around the world — 10:15 AM Greenwich Mean Time.
Our goal: to record one global singular minute in our lives.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like a spiffy reminder and something you can forward on to people you know. Otherwise, see you at 10:15 am GMT. For those of you in Billings, Montana, we apologize in advance. But you can go right back to bed!
Check out our link for time zone conversions for some of our regular ten:15 locations (http://www.ten15am.com/?page_id=6440).
Thanks again for playing!

Noah Devereaux’s been doing a docu project on gentrification in DC and it’s really nice. This is all on his off time and out of his own pocket. I sincerely hope the Times or the Post looks into publishing this. It’s a good story that holds a mirror up to the face of the city’s biggest issue.
check out this site on issues for freelancers and solutions. I haven’t sifted through it but it seems really helpful.
Jennifer Warren (my old roommate from Kenya & photographer extraordinare) recently was published by BBC for her photographic essay on malaria in Sudan. It’s gorgeous work and highly needed to expose this disease.
