24 Hour Shoot - London 1853
« on: January 11, 2013, 08:26:52 PM »
Some of you may be aware that I've recently been appointed to head up the London region of the Royal Photographic Society and the first task has been to put an events programme in place.  We have a very exciting event coming up next weekend and if any members from Camera Craniums would like to join us, we would be delighted to see you there!

The RPS was founded at a meeting held at 4.00 at, what is now, the Royal Society of Arts on the 20th January 1853.  To celebrate the 160th anniversary, we are organising a 24 hour photo shoot, which will take in many of the iconic London landmarks and the entire Monopoly board.  The shoot starts at 16.00 on Saturday and finishes at 16.00 on Sunday at the RSA.  We already have more than 100 signed up for the event and I'd like to get it to 160 participants.  Some people are joining the hard core and doing the full 24 hours, others are joining the group for part of the shoot, others are simply shooting solo in their part of London at a given time, whereas others are setting up shorter satellite shoots (eg. one in Greenwich and one in Chelsea).  We hope to get a really good exhibition out of this that shows 24 hours in London.  We have plenty of bars and cafes lined up for rest stops if the weather is filthy.

If any of you are interested in joining in, you can pm me with your email address, email me via london1853@yahoo.co.uk or click the register button via the RPS website here:  http://www.rps.org/region/London/events/view/2845

Hope to see some of you there!  BTW 1853 costume is encouraged but not compulsory :)

Think a party from the Richmond club is taking part at some stage. Good luck with the venture.  :tup:

Thanks Abers!  I have a shopping trip planned for tomorrow to purchase thermals, hip flask and ProPlus, as well as a bobble-hat, sans bobble, to tuck under the rather fetching purple feathered Victorian bonnet I shall be wearing for the occasion!

You'll look a treat Del!

And what a great idea; wished I could participate. Sadly not possible, but it's bound to be an astounding success!

Better include snowshoes as well.  :doh:
