I am asking because I have noticed that a LOT of the new photographers who weren't familiar with what Help Portrait is are having a hard time learning about it and joining the local groups.
My original plan, as an organizer, was to create on discussion thread where the only posts would be the names and contact info for people committed. The idea WOULD have worked but unfortunately a bunch of photographers emailed me telling me that they couldn't figure out how to post to the group!!!
Just wanted to know if anyone else has set up an additional location specific site for their events.. And if so, do we have rights / legal use of the help-portrait logo??
For those of you familiar with web dev. and wordpress, I have found a GREAT CRM plugin for wordpress that will let me create an area of my site where people can simply log in and add all of the info that I need from them right there. It will create a master list of volunteers. The people logging in can tag themselves based on the type of volunteer that they want to be; ie: photographer, general, post production, lighting, etc.
I am very new to this and have to agree completely how difficult the HP website is for "getting connected". I have signed up but NOW What? Would really love to be involved in this event on Dec. 4th but dont have a clue how to contact an organizer here in San Antonio for more information ie: time, location etc.
Any information you guys have would be very appreciated and I am very willing to spread the word as soon as I can figure out what to spread.
Thanks so much,
Thanks Armand but this is the site that I originally started with which I am finding difficult. I am unable to locate a contact name/number to get more information.
Thanks very much, hopefully someone will either contact me or post their name and number.
ewww, I am thinking I need to attend one before I start trying to organize one. I am hopeful that someone that is familiar with the event will step up and plan then next year I'll be happy to step up to the plate.
Thanks so much Armand this is the most correspondence I have had.
I never attended one and I am planning one. There's lot of resources and people to ask what they did.. Its more about initiative than experience here. You just have to think about what you need and just do it.. anyway you know how
