I’m a bit late on posting this but as I wrote in my last update – things have been hot around here.

Last weekend I wanted to have a bit of a get together – just sit around, drink some beers with friends – but I also really wanted and needed to take some new portraits. Thus the photojam was born.

The idea is that it’s like any jam session you’d have with musicians or other artists; you get together, you collaborate, but you have fun doing it. Something interesting should come out of that right? Ren, David, Alex (pictured with me), and Gord all came out to give it a shot. Also, FYI, it wasn’t a complete sausagefest – we did have ONE female show up.

Well I think we all got a taste for each other’s preferred styles, a chance to play with some other toys gear, and at the same time be completely social and not introverted online geeks!

You can check out some of our results in the flickr pool here.

If you’re just getting into photography, or even a seasoned, but bored, pro, I encourage you to invite a group of folks over for your own photojam – you can learn a lot from people of different skill levels and mindsets than your own.

As always, let me know what you think! If you have any questions about how (or why) we did some of this I’d be happy to answer as well.
