August 23rd Meeting – On-Location Shootout with Antique Planes, Cars and Models


JPPG is holding our August meeting at a special off-site location! We have been invited to the Green Cove Springs private hanger/residence of 27 year veteran and retired Navy pilot John ‘Lites’ Leenhouts. We have a fun evening planned with small group instruction, models and a backdrop of lots of antique planes and cars. JPPG experienced photographers will share their approach to composition, lighting & posing. We’ll wrap up the evening in the hanger with Q&A. You’ll go home inspired with lots of great ideas and techniques to use in your photography business. Please join us in Green Cove Springs!

When: Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011 at 6pm. (please note earlier starting time)

Where: 5265 Airpark Loop West, Green Cove Springs, FL 32043

GPS users: Use the intersection of US17 & Airpark Road and not the address.

Directions from I-295: Exit US17 South (Roosevelt Blvd). Continue about 15 miles, past the SR16 intersection, then continue an additional 5.9 miles south. You’ll see Batton Road on the right. Take the next right onto Airpark Road which is gravel. Right at the dead end with lots of mailboxes, left on the gravel curve, cross the grassy runway then take a right. Signs will be posted to assist you.

Where do I park? We will direct you where to park. It is fine to come late, but if someone is not standing there to help you park, please HONK twice and we will come to you. Please do not park without assistance because this is private property and there are designated taxi lanes for planes in between each hanger/residence. Carpooling is encouraged!

Can I bring my gear? Yes! This is a hands on seminar.

What do I wear? Please dress comfortably in summer casual clothing. You may want to wear closed toed shoes however, as we will be in a grassy field that is certain to have ants and other insects.

What else should I bring? Bottled water. Insect repellent. If you have a camp chair, bring one in your trunk just in case we don’t have enough for the Q&A at the end of the evening.

What will be provided? Iced coolers for your bottled water, extra repellent to share if you don’t have any, inside bathrooms for your convenience.

How can I use the images I take? Personal use and portfolios only. You may not sell any images or publish them anywhere without prior written permission from the property owners.

Model Releases will be available in trade for digital files, so you’ll be able to use these images in your portfolios. Details will be provided the day of the event.
