PhotoShelter A Go Go (PhotoShelter Likes to Party)

In 2006, we had this crazy idea to throw a party during PhotoPlus Expo even though we were just a tiny little company of 8 people at the time. Alyssa Adams and the crew over at the Bathhouse Studios helped us host along with our cool friends at Altpick and liveBooks. We also came up with the kooky idea to hire a couple of go-go girls because, well, why not?

We had no idea who might show up, but there ended up being a line around the block, and people were waiting for a long time despite the cold. Cliff from MAC Group got the keg stands going, and it was all good. Definitely one of my fav moments, if you know what I mean.

So what to expect this year? Bigger? Better? We pulled out all the stops, and went from two go-go girls to three go-go girls, and instead of just hotdogs and popcorn, we added pretzels. We probably should have gotten the clue when over 1,500 of you guys RSVPd for the party. Once again, AltPick and Livebooks co-hosted the event, so many thanks for an awesome time.

And sorry to all of you who couldn’t get in this year!!!! One of our security guys was also a fireman, and we had a fire hazard situation not only because of the people, but b/c I was tearing it up on the dance floor (har! har!), much to the amusement of my co-workers. You might have also seen me pouring drinks. Apparently, I suck as a bartender and have a heavy pour (I thought that was a good thing).

Our man, Cradoc Bagshaw, from fotoQuote was documenting the scene and came back with what I thought was a pretty iconic shot of the evening. We’ll see ya next year!

Update: Check out the party pics!
