S3 • Walk, Shoot and Share!
Welcome to our new web site!
S3 is a free monthly 3rd Saturday photowalk which meets in Niles and carpools to a variety of locations in the Bay Area. Meeting time varies, please check the event listing for exact details.
This site will provide a much better viewing experience for our photos then the older site. To keep the image quality up we are requiring that members post images that are at least 1400 pixels in the long dimension and compressed to < 1024k (1m).
Members of S3 are invited to display their work in a special exhibit at the FAA Gallery from July 1 through September 23rd. I always encourage photowalkers to support the FAA with your membership.
If work is sold 20% of the money will go to the Fremont Art Association. FAA cuts checks monthly.
We are going to use the FAA's simplified photo receiving contract. Please fill it out completely.
There is no hanging fee or gallery sitting requirement to participate. The remainder of the terms are spelled out in the receiving contract. As always I assume no personal liability for any problems that may arise from your participation in this event.
If you submit multiple pieces list your order of preference for hanging. We are filling an uncertain space so it is better to have a little more work then less.
Photos should be wrapped and labeled on the back (name, phone, title, price, order), please wrap each piece individually in newspaper or foam, special packaging will be preserved and available when the work comes down.
Here is the receiving form
To get your work in the show call me and make an appointment to drop the photos and documentation off at my studio. I am located near Fremont and Decoto
I am away on assignment from the 26th to the 30th. To drop during that period call Greg Smith at (510) 742-7417 and he will receive the work. Greg's office is near the Newpark Mall.
Here is a nice easy one!
We are all a little tired from our summer expedition so we have traditionally done the Niles "Hot August" car show as a cool down. This walk is on level city sidewalks and covers about a half mile of the Niles downtown area.
Lets meet, wander Niles' main street, shoot the wildly painted hot rods and restorations, eat some food truck goodies and talk about the kinds of places we can go this year.
The S3 photo exhibit is on display at the gallery so you will get a chance to enjoy some member's photography.
I am going to collect some input and try to post a number of events this year so we will be able to see into the Photowalk future :)
Lets meet at 11:00am at the Fremont Art Association gallery and shoot the cars... You will want to park back in the hoods behind Niles Blvd as the downtown stretch will be closed.
This is a handheld gig so we can get by with a light kit. A lens that will do macro focusing can be handy.
Attendees are asked to sign a liability waiver.
