Field Trip FAQ

Written by Rip Williams. Posted in FAQs

So... you want to organize an "official" GPG field trip, do you?  Groovy.

Q: Why organize a field trip?
A: GPG happens in the studio most of the time.  Maybe you want to get a few people together for a location shoot.  Awesome.  Alternately, perhaps you want to submit images to one of the numerous art shows we produce each year (all images must be shot at GPG or an official field trip.  See the photography show submission guidelines for details.)

Q: What constitutes an "official" field trip?
A: Four things.  First, you need to be a member of Guerrilla Photo Group (yes, that means joining the website, etc.)  Second, you must openly invite all GPG members with at least 48 hours notice (read on to see how.)  Third, you must get five GPG members together for the field trip. (So inviting GPG members to join you in Hawaii for a "field trip" doesn't mean you can now submit you vacation images to the shows.)  Lastly, the field trip must be free except for entry/location/model fees, etc.  (You can't invite people to pay you to participate in your seminar/class, for instance, and call it a GPG field trip.)

Q: Got it.  How can I invite everyone?
A: You can send an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with the details (maybe create a Google calendar event to share, etc.)  You can also create a facebook event and add GPG as a host.  We'll do our best to (re)post everywhere we can.

Q: What sorts of field trips work well?
A: Awesome locations, especially those to which you have unique access (what?!?  Your uncle owns an airplane hanger? ... your sister is an F-1 driver and you can get the group in the pits? ...your best friend in a lion keeper at the zoo?)
