Click and Shoot: PUBLIC GARDEN

Boston Photography Center‘s next Click and Shoot will be at none other than Boston’s Public Garden, Saturday, September 2, 2006, 1:00 PM!

We thought this would be a great event to have to cap off the City Projects.

There will be two goals to this Click and Shoot. 1) To learn and gain inspiration from each other while we shoot — just like we always do with our group photo outings. And 2) To take some beautiful pictures to add to our group Tabblo of the Public Garden.

Next Meeting: Sept. 9-10 at PodCamp Boston

Sept 9-10, 2006 Bunker Hill Community College, Boston. (Venue Sponsored by the Museum of Science, Boston)

For September, we’re going to take part in PodCamp Boston!

Podcamp Boston is a FREE unconference in the tradition of BarCamp, and will be held on September 9th and 10th, 2006, at the Bunker Hill Community College (sponsored by the Museum of Science, Boston), accessible by public transportation, and readily reachable via the train. Podcamp is FREE to attend. (You find your way here, get a room or ask us for a list of folks who might let you crash, and we’ll feed you and entertain you for a few days).

The first 200 registrants are guaranteed a free shirt, and any other interesting free schwag we find along the way.

THE DEAL: An unConference means that the participants are also the experts. We’re audio and video podcasters, enthusiasts, businesspeople, hobbyists, musicians, promoters, marketers, and people who generally want to understand more about the new media space. The power of an unconference is you get FREE ACCESS to ideas, thoughts, best practices, and the true “wisdom of crowds” simply by registering and attending.

We urge you to consider signing up to give a 5 minute lightning talk about your experience with podcasts (viewing/listening), or a 30 minute session if you’ve got enough material. Really shy or too new to the space? Try signing up for a Round Table Discussion and just let the others start off the conversation before you join in.

BRING YOUR GEAR: We’ll be doing lots of hands-on learning at this event, including how-to’s on recording techniques, editing skills, video composition, podsafe music, and plenty more. There’s a whole section on the website showing SESSIONS. I’m bad at math, but it looked like over 20 sessions are set up now. Don’t see what you want to know? Request the session. Have something to add that we haven’t considered? Throw it up there. Oh, and as for bringing your gear, if you want to have some kind of gear swap, we’re set up for that, too.

BUNKER HILL COMMUNITY COLLEGE: PodCamp Boston will be held at Bunker Hill Community College . We have access to a few large areas to assemble, with sessions being held in smaller classroom areas. It’s local enough to everything that you can ride a train, take a bus, get a cab. It’s VERY accessible to folks either coming from far away or locally. There’s parking, as well.

VENUE SPONSOR: The event’s venue was sponsored by the Museum of Science, Boston, who’s made a strong commitment to the new media space. Did you know they have their own Podcast? Our venue isn’t that far from the Museum. Seeing as you’ll be in town anyway, come on by and give your thanks to this great institution for making our venue possible. (If you don’t have time to visit, drop them email. Go to


Use Google Calendar?

SPREAD THE WORD: If you’ve already signed up, thanks! Please spread this around and get the word out. This event is the kind you DON’T want to miss, and I imagine some of your friends won’t want to miss it, either. We’re hoping you can attend this landmark experience.

SPONSORS: If you’re a business sponsor and are interested in being known as a supporter of new media and technology, please consider sponsoring in one of the many ways we have available to you to show your support.

THIS EVENT IS ABOUT YOU: Come to PodCamp Boston on Sept 9-10th, to a FREE unConference, and learn how you can get involved in the new media revolution.
