Summer is all about adventure and making memories with those you love, Flickr is the perfect place to share your summertime memories and this summer we are happy to introduce “The Wild Ones Workshop Tour” and the hashtag #flickrXcountry.
We, Sarah Ann Loreth, Shane Black and Joel Robison, are three friends and Flickr members who are setting out on a two month long workshop tour across the United States, reaching from Washington State to New York City. We are teaching 6 workshops in cities across the country and will be sharing our photos and stories here on the Flickr Blog all summer long.
Our first stop was Myrtle Creek, Oregon, where we joined approximately 50 other photographers from around the globe at a farm owned by Brendon Burton. The group, which became friends through social media and now organize meetups throughout the year, spent 8 days together in southern Oregon.
During the gathering, we explored nearby forests, abandoned homes and churches, swam in rivers and of course took a lot of photos which you can find in the “orfg2013” Flickr group.
After many hugs and long goodbyes, we have travelled north to Seattle where another (smaller) gathering welcomed us with open arms. Hosted by Kindra Timmerwilke and Austin Tott, twenty photographers from as far as the UK will spend 5 days in the Pacific Northwest, exploring the Seattle area before spending a few days camping at Mt. Rainier.
We, “The Wild Ones”, hosted our first workshop last Friday, July 19th in Portland. The rest of the dates are:
Los Angeles – July 27th
Dallas – August 5th
Tampa – August 12th
Atlanta – August 16th (meetup, not a workshop!)
Washington DC – August 19th
New York City – August 24th
