It’s the FPP New York City Meetup Show! Join host Michael Raso as he meets up with podcast listeners in New York City. On April 16th, 2011, listeners of the FPP met in New York City, and for those of you who weren’t able to attend (or just said, “Are you crazy? I don’t want to meet these jerks!”) can experience the next best thing! It’s just like being there, only you’re not getting rained on. Sprinkled in the show notes are YouTube videos that you heard on the show!


  • In the studio, Mike is joined by newly official FPP co-host Mat Marrash and special guest Dan Domme.


 



 



  • Dan talks about organizing the meet-up, and the gang discusses even MORE meetups from around the world!

  • Let’s roll the audio tape! Mike interviews the gang: Mat Marrash, Chris Fecio, Tom Schaefer, Michael Calleia, Ted Gallucci, and Dan Domme... Speaking of Michael Calleia, he’s currently working on the new and improved Film Photography Project website! Watch for it soon.

  • One of the things we saw on our photo walk was the “High Line” (From Wikipedia:) “The High Line is a 1.45-mile (2.33 km) New York City park built on a section of the former elevated freight railroad spur called the West Side Line, which runs along the lower west side of Manhattan; it has been redesigned and planted as an aerial greenway. The High Line Park currently runs from Gansevoort Street, one block below West 12th Street, in the Meatpacking District, up to 20th Street, and will eventually run through the neighborhood of Chelsea to the West Side Yard, near the Javits Convention Center.”

  • Back on the audio tape, Mat introduces the Lomography Spinner 360. Anton asks Mike about his film format habits and talk about his Olympus OM-1 and how he doesn’t have Gear Acquisition Syndrome, despite having 20 cameras. Ron talks about the podcast that he hosts with FPP listener John Meadows, called the Film Photography Forecast.
