Well hello, gals and guys.
I’m organizing a photowalk for Saturday September 11 in conjunction with the Galway City hackperspace, 091 Labs.
Location: 091 Labs and Galway city centre, Galway City.
Time and Date: 10am to 6pm, Saturday September 11, 2010.
Meeting Point: The 091 Labs workspace at Exchange House, Fairgreen Road, Galway City (Maps).
What else: The 091 Labs building features restrooms, refreshments, bandwidth, comfortable chairs and shelter from the inclement weather if it turns against us. If you are interested in giving a talk (see below) in the afternoon, you are invited to bring along your laptop; we have a secure storage area to keep it until needed.
Getting here: We are immediately across the road from both the Irish Rail and Bus Eireann terminal and next door to the private coach terminal. If you don’t feel like driving yourself, Bus Eireann, Citylink and GoBus.ie all have direct, cheap bus services from Dublin to Galway.
There is a suggested donation of ten euros to 091 Labs. This will go toward helping pay their monthly bills.
My rough plan for the day is:
- 10am: We meet up at either Eyre Squre, or at the 091 Labs workspace. The workspace is next door to and across the road from (respectively), both of Galway’s bus (and train) terminals.
- 10:30am-2pm: The motley crew of photographer proceeds around the beautiful centre of this medieval city, dodging Saturday shoppers as they pursue the sublime, perfect photograph, and then down onto the bay for landscape/beach/portrait shots.
- 2pm: Back to 091 Labs for lunch. We have plenty of choice in the area from Centra and fast food all the way up to rather good restaurants.
- 3pm-6pm: For the rest of the evening we hold a series of talks/workshops on photography and photography topics.
Anything related to photography is welcome in these talks! Share your business tips, your shooting advice, your processing workflow, or even amusing rant, for between ten and thirty minutes. If you are so interested in speaking on the evening please contact me.
