The British Empire Strikes Back, and here's how!

Pre-Event Meetup (Friday 27 October): Porcupine Pub

Take the tube to Leicester Square, exit 3, turn right, immediately next to the station exit. We have the upstairs room booked from 1930 until closing.
Invite your friends too! This is the non-official meeting, no payment necessary, so even if you can't make the event, come and meet other iStockers!
Let us know here if you are coming and if you are bringing someone.

Day 1 (Saturday 28th October): The Big Day

It's iStock Wedding time, we are going to be marrying (metaphorically) two of our most beautiful model couples and having plenty of beautiful guests oohing and ahhing around them, thats right people, love is in the air and you get to photograph the whole thing, it's kind of like the SkyPlus of wedding photography, you can pause, and even rewind the wedding action, making sure you get the perfect shot. Great for stock, and for your blossoming portfolio.
This day will be in a church in the Hampstead area of London.

Day 2 (Sunday 29th October): Andi's Birthday

Business images take on a new dimension as we go secret. Espionage is the word of the day, spies, dames, James Bond, we'll be out and about doing all the top secret stuff that London has to offer. Prepare yourself for catching people in the act, obtaining classified photos and in true James Bond style, getting the girl. It's life on the edge, with a licence to shoot (cameras of course!!) Trilby and trenchcoat optional.
This day will be in a non disclosed location or locations of London city centre in the vicinity of the Thames. (Oooh, mysterious...)

How many can come?

20 iStockers can come... Given our current list of interested people we are inevitably going to have to disappoint people... But don't worry, even if you don't get a ticket this time, please know that we do really love each and every one of you, and may be tempted to organise another get together again... So, tickets are on a first pay, first serve basis (payment details below).

How much will it cost?

[/b]Tickets are £80 per person and cover the models, makeup artists, wardrobe, and location hire. You will need to cover your own travel to London, accommodation and food.

We have set up a paypal account for you to pay the ticket money into, and the first 20 people to pay us will get a ticket. The paypal account is istockphotolondon@yahoo.co.uk, and please put your iStock username as the payment reference, and site-mail Umbar (AtomicSparkle) when you've paid! We'll keep the forum up-to-date with the number of tickets remaining - so please do check the forum to see if there are still tickets available before you pay us!

Who will we be working with?

Allow me to introduce our models for the weekend:

aleksandra

anais

barry-lee

christine

claudia

dave

david

deborah

erin

hannahb

karim

mary-anne

michala

After such a successful London event in July, there has been much chat around the iStock water cooler of a repeat event, and given the huge amount of energy that the first one generated, I thought it was a good idea.
As it is written, so shall it be, the 28th and 29th October 2006, iStockers from around the globe shall once again descend upon the poor city of London and snap away until their cards are full and their hearts content.
All iStockers interested in being a part of this epic adventure, make your mark on this here tome and we shall get it done.

Adam, I have a wedding too!

Somehow, though, I have to make sure this gets planned smoothly.

I am all for a different weekend, but it is afterall Andi's birthday. Certainly worth the celebration.

Count me in, please


What sort of props do you need? I can't help with equipment ('cos I don't have any!!) but I can bring "stuff" and I can cook so if you're serious about cakes & such like, I'll have a baking session

Adam, weddings happen all the time, this happens once!!! Geoff has an excuse, he's the photographer at said wedding, so unless you're taking official photos or getting married, your excuse is looking pretty flimsy

It's looking to be a great weekend already, the energy is still sky high.

Starting next tuesday I'll be spending 12 days at an NLP Master Practitioner Course, so shall be out of touch during the days, but shall focus my evening attention on organising this event.

It's less than two months to go, are you guys as excited as I am???
