It’s that time of the year again! This is our 8th year being invited to photograph pinball, arcade, and console games from the 1960’s to brand new units at Houston’s Arcade Expo!

No official meetup time, the convention will be there for 3 days, come whenever suits you.

Alex (my son) and I bought the VIP tickets this year as a reward for his first year in college. So we will be there off and on all weekend.

PAY AT THE DOOR OR IN ADVANCE AT THE WEBSITE:

100’s of Pinball, Arcade & Consoles on free play!
Check out the schedule for all the events, consume contest, dance party, etc on their website.

A few notes:

  • Careful with the flash photography, the light will bounce off of game glass and ruin your image.
  • Be REALLY careful of mono/tripods in rooms with lower the lights. We don’t wanna trip anyone.
  • Bring a circular polarizer for your lenses, it helps cut the reflection from the pinball game glass.
  • Music is loud and lights go dim in the evening. For a quieter visit, go early in the day on Saturday.

See you there!
