Trading photoshoot at Burning Man for a ticket

I would like to offer a photoshoot of you, your friends or your camp at the Burning Man in exchange for the ticket.  Everything else - transportation, accommodation, etc. - I will arrange myself. You will receive files with your photos shortly after the festival. I have shot Burning Man in 2004 and 2005, and will provide sample pictures.

Let me know if interested...

More phone jabbering

My buddy, Dr. Easy, is hosting his theme camp for the second year in a row - Burning Phone Camp.

I *like* his idea. He pays for the minutes out of his own pocket, and gifts phone use to anyone who asks. He slapped together this rig and somehow made it work. It shows a certain amount of DIY skill and at least a little innovation.

I don't carry my phone around during The Week, and I don't think anyone else should. But there's something cute and fun about calling a buddy at home and rubbing it in his face that I'm at Burning Man and he's at home.

If you want to get away from the rest of the world for The Week, I'm right there with you. But I *do* think that, outside emergency situations, there can be an entertaining, participatory, interactive way to use a telephone at Burning Man.

Just sayin'.


EDIT: sputnik  just posted in a previous thread that he knows of another camp gifting communications.

A theme camp is bringing a setup at minimum. Does that make you feel differently?
