#1 - is there anyone else out there from Rochester, NY?
#2 - Rochester, NY is the birthplace of popular photography, home to George Eastman House: International Museum of Photography & Film & The Visual Studies Workshop which were the institutions that realized photography as an art form, and along with several galleries dedicated to imagery, is also the home of R.I.T. which arguably has one of the best photography programs in the country.
#3 - With all of that in mind is there any reason why Rochester, NY is not one of the best places to hold a celebration of everything photography and iStock related? Answer = NO.
Who's in and how do we do it? iStockers in Buffalo, Syracuse, Finger Lakes region, Cleveland, and Toronto are of course invited as you're all so close. If you want to come from further away - rock on! Hotel and travel info can be easily coordinated as my day job is working for the Rochester, NY Visitors Bureau and can put my collegues in motion.
Feel free to get in touch here or at day job = firstname.lastname@example.org, 585.279.8319
Hope we can make it a reality, get inspired, and have cocktails - so talk soon - Initial75

I live in Raleigh, NC, but have been to Rochester before; I thought about going to school at RIT. I would be interested in maybe driving or flying up to Rochester for an event there if it was next year, and I am not busy. But, seeing as I am in Raleigh, I don't think I'd be much good at helping organize this event.

I could possibly be in... I live in NJ but am from Buffalo so I make
it up there a couple times a year. This would certainly be a good
excuse to make the trip.
I probably couldn't do a couple days of activities but could participate for most of one day.

I am in Orange County NY and would love to go to a local one. It would be my first for sure and I would like to meet some people.
