[Update: Directions to Jakes: https://www.jakesfiner

Please don’t forget, due to the group size limitations for this event, we will only have badges for the individuals who RSVP’ed. If you RSVPed for more than one person, please contact me as soon as possible. I won’t have badges for anyone I don’t know about, so have your guests RSVP!]

[Update: We had a few people update their RSVPs so we now have several open spots for this event. If you’re interested, log in and RSVP. Reminder: your RSVP needs to reflect ONE person only; sorry, no “guests”. Jakes has graciously invited 30 of us to their employee lunch, so there will be access badges only for those on the RSVP list. Thanks]

Jakes Finer Foods of Houston has opened a new facility and warehouse and has invited us to a tour and lunch!

We’ve had several photowalks right on top of each other, but this was an event that was impossible to pass up.

You’ll have a great opportunity to practice both portrait and architecture/venue/warehouse photography at this event! This will be the same day as Jake’s “Family Day”. So we will join employees and their families as they picnic and tour the brand new facilities. Your photos may also appear in future Jake’s Finer Food marketing materials!

$3 requested to help pay for the badges. This event is specifically for employees of Jake’s Finer Foods. The badge will identify you as a HPW Photographer so you can enter the facilities.

* The warehouse is refrigerated, bring a jacket!
* Space is limited, please RSVP accurately!
* There will be a safety waiver for you to sign.
* Photo donations back to the venue are requested/expected

Schedule (subject to change):
10:45am: Meet with Joe in the parking area to get badges, discuss safety & venue info
11:00am: Meet for lunch & discuss photo assignment
11:30(ish): Start photographing event and the warehouse
1:00pm: Photograph outside of building, grounds, and architecture.

For those who haven’t attended one of our photo donation events before, here’s the scoop. Sometimes venues and organizations allow Houston Photowalks to enter “off-limits” areas if we provide them with photos in return. If you RSVP Yes for this event, please release 5 or 10 (or more) photos for Jake’s to use in future marketing materials.
