Fresno - March 19th Downtown rooftop photo-shoot

Okay, I got the official word today from the Californian Hotel that I can use their roof to photograph the roof top parking structure it over looks.

THIS WILL BE A ONE TIME DEAL So, if you are interested in being part of something unique, contact me and me let me know that you are coming. We will meet on the top of the old Gottschalk's parking spiral at approx. 7pm on Friday March 19th. It will take some time to set up the cars. Plan on being there for at least 2 hours, maybe 3. This will involve two seperate shots.

One will be with the Hotel and Fresno skyline as a backdrop. The other will be shooting down from the roof of the hotel with the Gen 5's parked facing the hotel.

Please note this is a Gen 5 Camaro event only. If it rains that night, we will push it back a week. The property manager of the Californian Hotel made it clear to me that this is a one time thing. So, again, if you want to be part of a unique photo shoot, make plans to be there. Any questions at all, please contact me. Thanks, and hope to see as many Camaros there as possible. Attached is a wide angle day light view of the parking structure rooftop. I scoped it out this morning.

Too bad it's Gen 5 only.
I've got a beauty '98 and my old man's packing one gorgeous '69.

Can't wait to see the photos though!

Another view

The "spirals" up and down ramps, are along Van Ness Ave. The cross street that the intersection is visible on just above the spiral is Inyo.

Test run tonight!

Tonight at 6pm or we are meeting on the roof of the parking structure to do a series of test shots. The pic I've included shows the Hotel, on which I will be perched for the "down" shot. The building with vertical lines is the Dell Webb building, and the Fresno water tower is between them. This photo shows the approx. area and view that I would like to shoot the Camaros from the parking lot surface. The other photo just shows a wider view of the parkinglot with the city around it. Anyone is welcome to the test shot tonight. Contact me if you wish, or just show up at 6pm downtown.

Head count

Trying to get an idea of how many Camaros will be included in this event. Please let me know if you are planning on being there. I did some test shots last friday (on another post) if you want to get an idea of what it looks like at night up there.

So, the plan is March 19th, at 7pm. if it rains that night, then we move it back a week. Bring snacks and drinks (for yourself) you will be up there a while Let's hope for a nice warm evening, or at least not cold! I've had a number of people check in already (privately), so we are looking good for a good number of Camaros to attend. Hope to see all of our regulars, and anyone else that would like to come.

Closed gates?

You mean like chains required at the top of the 4 lane? If the 4 lane is open, Shaver is just past that, so we should be fine. It's all a matter of if it snows anymore in that area. I think chances are that it will be open. Also, what comes to mind is that large parking lot, right on the lake where people fish, and I think it's when you first come out of the village, and see the lake. That parking lot would be an excellent place to stop, admire the view, and relax before heading back down to the valley.

If anyone wants to do that, I'll be in for it. I just don't see many people wanting to drive up the hill after 10pm! No doubt though, it would be cool. Be much cooler if it were a hot summer night! We could party all night

You know camp fires, throwing the football around, checking out all of our Camaros etc. I think that should be a weekend event though. We should just take over a camp site. What do you all think?
