The Holga Hustle – May 7 at Lake Louise
Just a reminder that we only have a few spots left for our Holga Hustle on May 7 in Lake Louise. If you’ve been following our Fabulous Film Fridays project, you’ll know that Samantha and I have been having a lot of fun playing around with our Holga cameras, Beep and Bop. So much so that we want to share the fun and invite YOU and your Holga (or other film camera) to come along with us on May 7th to the free Holga Hustle and Print Show.
We’ll be in Lake Louise in Banff National Park with Beep and Bop, just walking around and taking pictures of whatever catches our fancy. There are lots of paths along the river and of course visitors coming to enjoy the wonderful scenery of the Canadian Rockies, so there will be plenty to shoot. Anyone can come, just bring a film camera of any kind and you’re in! And if you do not have a film camera we’ll supply you with one and even some film! We have lots of film cameras to choose from. And don’t forget you have a chance to win the Holga below which has been donated by Jim Slobodian of the Holga Blog! The results of the Holga Hustle will also be posted here on the LLTL blog and there will be even more prizes offered once the results come in.
We’ll be at the Holga Hustle from 2:00pm until 4:30pm on Saturday, May 7th after which we are heading over to nearby Baker Creek Bistro to launch our Print Show! The Bistro has generously provided space in their restaurant for us to show some of our prints, including some made with our Holgas (BTW, Jim from the Holga Blog made all of our Holga prints for us!). From 5:00pm until 7:00pm, Sam and I will be at the print show with both Holga prints and a sampling of digital files printed on aluminum from Image Wizards to demonstrate in glowing colour the beauty of the area. There will be free snacks on hand for munching (yum!), and if you need a glass of wine after the exertion of the afternoon walk, alcoholic drinks will be available for purchase.
While you’re at Baker Creek, why not make a reservation for dinner to enjoy the excellent, locally-sourced food at the Bistro or make a weekend of it by staying at the Baker Creek Chalets. This is where we host our SNAP! Photography Seminars workshop October 27-30, 2011 so now is your chance to check out this world-class accommodation. The folks at Baker Creek are offering anyone coming for the Holga Hustle a 15% discount on a two-night stay. Just mention our names (Darwin and Samantha) and come hang out in the Rockies that weekend!
Convinced? Then come to The Holga Hustle and Print Show at the Bistro to see what you can do with a Holga image. Space is limited to only 20 people! If you would like to attend the Hustle and Print Show, please email us to reserve your spot.
