Beer, Tattoo, Spider House – Austin, Texas

People in Austin and Central Texas, there’s going to be a fun and free event next Thursday at 7:30pm (February 20, 2014) at the Spider House Cafe.

I’ve talked about Drink and Click several times before, it’s a socially oriented photography meet up. Well next week, Charles from Olympus is going to be there with 10 of the hot OM-D EM-1 cameras along with a full complement of Olympus lenses. You know the E-M1, it’s the camera many people voted as the best of 2013. These cameras are going to be available to anyone who wants to shoot them for a while in a real environment, just bring an ID. And what a neat place to take pictures. Spider House Cafe is an eclectic Austin establishment just north of the University of Texas campus. It will be a fun setting to test the camera.

I helped organize this event and was looking forward to being there myself, except, a last-minute business trip dashed my plans. I’ll be on the other side of the world in Singapore. I’m kind of bummed that I’m not going to be there. But make sure to go. It’s not going to be some corporate sales pitch. Just a way to let photographers play with equipment in non-store setting with a group of like-minded photo enthusiasts.
