The SAJA Convention begins on June 16. Hope you have registered and will be attending all the events. It promises to be the best convention yet!
As a sort of sideshow, I am arranging for a meet up for fellow photographers and photo editors on Thursday, June 16, 2005.
Here is the plan – we’ll meet between 4.30 pm and 6 pm, before the official SAJA opening reception that night.
Here is where we will be:
135 8th Ave
New York, NY 10011
Wed-Sat 11:30am- 4:00am
Sun-Tue 11:30am- 2:00am
Tel: (212) 242-5336
The Chelsea Grill is conveniently located near the Rubin Museum of Art where the SAJA receptiion will take place [a block and a half is my estimate].
Please email me at – sajamail [at] pipalproductions [dot] com to let me know you will be coming. Tell me who you are, whether you are a photographer or a photo editor and whether you are on staff or a freelancer. The subject of your email must be – SAJA PHOTO MEETUP.
You can bring friends, but please know that this gathering is limited to those working in the photojournalism business. If you have a particular affinity towards South Asia, great. If you would llike to work there someday and want to meet photojournalists like Shahidul Alam of the Bangladesh-based Drik photo agency, do come along and join us. Either way it should be fun.
