Day 33 – #PCU2010

This is going to be a long post. Sorry.

There will be hundreds, OK maybe not hundreds, but there will be many of posts in the next few days about how great Photocamp Utah was.  I could not agree more it was amazing.

I want to mainly talk about how it happens.  This done entirely by volunteers, and because of that we all got a great day at a great price. Someone was teasing me about paying to go to a class, and then spending the time as a volunteer.  I said “This kind of crap doesn’t happen without people taking the time to make it happen.”  Yeah, maybe I missed a class, but I gained much more than I missed.

To me this picture is the reason Photocamp Utah is great.

This is @nikonrookie. I don’t know if he ever got away from his post sitting on the cement in front of the computer, but he was there every time I walked into the room all day long.  Just so that others had a chance to see the brilliance that was in the main auditorium.

He was not the only one, there were many people who made this happen. So if you benefited from anything Saturday don’t forget that when #pcu2011 rolls around you have a chance to help make it happen.  So right here right now I am saying. @anntorrence, @jeremyhall whatever you need for next year let me know I want to help!

PS I just want to thank everyone that did anything to pull #pcu2010 off yesterday.  Whether it was teaching a class, hosting a room, helping someone find the class they wanted to attend.  It could not have happened without you.  Thank you!!

PPS Zack Arias was one of the most amazing inspiring speakers I have ever heard.  Big Thanks to you @zarias

Thank you so much for your generous efforts at PhotoCamp Utah throughout the day. I am also thrilled you thought to point out the others involved in making this day a success, especially my friend Shawn (@nikonrookie). He went way above and beyond the call of duty to make sure this video stream was available to the public. It is people like him and you that make this day what it is. Thank you.
