I had been looking forward to placing a call for photographers on the blog now and directing people to the PinkForOctoberIreland.org site to register as models and photographers.
But that is not to be. Instead, I’m afraid to say that there will not be a Pink portraits day on September 20th in Daunt Square, Cork.
If I was to do go back in time to prepare the Pink idea again, I’d have to go back to June. Then I would…
- Start the call for photographers.
- Get then to register.
- Explain that they need to register full contact details so that Gardai and City Council required
- health and safety
- traffic management plans
- pedestrian management plans
- first aid appointees
- public liability insurance etc are in place.
Also the Garda contact mentioned that mobile numbers (or at least contact numbers) of all the “staff” are required
- Also the HSA have legal requirements for event with more than 3 staff
So that seems to be that.
I would like to have a photo-walk in its place. A meeting of photographers and photo-bloggers to wander around Cork City with their lenses out on a busy Saturday. How does 11am in Daunt Square sound as a meeting point? If you want to contact me, my details are in the about page.
Sorry to disappoint those who registerd on the (admittedly half built) PinkForOctoberIreland.org site, but if you’re interested in doing something; I’m planning on turning the pinkforoctoberireland site in to a blog aggregater for this year (should be up soon), and make plans for the photography next year.
If you want to blog, comment etc as part of Pink For October, register with the international PinkForOctober.org site. And when I have the aggregater up, register and tag your posts with “p4oi”.
If you want to do more, bring pink objects to donate to the ICS shop just off Daunt Square when you are coming on the photowalk. Should make us easy to spot.
And as for next year. I’ll take all the help I can get
Care to join me?
