HOT SAMS 2014
Kathy and Jake have once again opened their doors to TCPG.
Cost: $10.00 per person to be paid at the door of Hot Sams
After last years heatwave we decided to do it a little later this year. Hopefully we will catch some of the fall colors.
For those of you who haven’t ever been to Hot Sam’s get ready for your first trip to wonderland. I can guarantee you will never see anything like it again.
Born out of a Son’s love for his mother. Jake used his humor and imagination to create an artistic menagerie of old cars, boats, trains, circus tents, giant guitars, motorcycles, missiles, sunflowers, Space Ships and anything else you can imagine.
Walking around Hot Sams one may feel like they fell down the rabbit hole.
You may be asking what exactly is this Hot Sam’s Event?
This is a day of collaboration. Models come with costumes to be photographed. Photographers offer pictures in trade for being able to build their portfolios.
Some members bring their kids in old costumes as well. If you are not into model shoots no worried there is enough interesting things at Hot Sam’s to photograph you will not be bored there is eye candy everywhere.
Everyone brings food! We eat, socialize and photograph.
It’s a photographers woodstock if you will.
We create together and enjoy each others company.
It is a time to learn, meet new people and just have fun.
For older members it has become a family reunion. Lots of hugging going on.
I am hoping to see a lot of older members again this year.
Personally, this is the event that will always have my heart . This is where I realized what an amazing community we have become. The first time I saw everyone working together I thought to myself we truly have something special going on here. Right after the first Hot Sams event TCPG started to grow pretty quickly. Everyone wanted to be part of the group that made those amazing images. Our small community began to expand faster than we could keep up with. I guess one could say Hot Sams was the birth ground for TCPG.
Hot Sams still inspires me every time I go to it. As stated earlier it was born out of love and I truly believe that energy surrounds it and affects anyone who is open to sharing in it. Kathy and Jake are two of the nicest and most sincere people you will ever meet. Their friendship means the world to me. They keep the good energy going. They are the two hidden treasures at Hot Sams for all those who were wondering.
Hope to see you all there.
