Photographer Gathering In Miami In Jan 2013

Fri Nov 16, 2012 7:26 pm

Hi All,

Annually we have a semi official gathering of aviation photographers from around the world in Miami in January.

Photographers from around the world come together for a few days of hanging out/photography/slide trading etc.

This is the 23rd such year of it! We welcome you to come to Miami and join us! It is awesome sight to see 50-60 photographers at one location together!

We also do ramp tours at MIA and sometimes at FLL (the last two years). We plan to skip the FLL ramp tour but still do photography there.

We have an excellent website that details the plan. This is not a commercial operation but a gathering of enthusiasts hence there is no fees except for your travel costs/lodgings. Any donations will go towards covering the hotel conference room costs. We usually chip in a donation to cover incidentals. Credit for bringing this all together goes to Eddy Gual (the famous Miami photographer).

Website is here:

These pictures were all taken at past gatherings (just a sample of opportunities). There is a lot of shots at many other locations at MIA,FLL, OPF,TMB,FXE etc...

I'd come down just to hear your talk on Friday evening & shake your hand Suresh, thanking you for all the NASA shots through the years! Will have to wait and see what work has me doing that weekend.

Looks nice and I would consider it, but at the moment it's too short notice. Maybe another year  
Have fun!

See you in 2014!  

Don tells me that he is down to a couple of spots available and he has a standby list developed. So if anyone is interested in the ramp tour, please get your emails in ASAP.
