Florida Members - Gauging Interest

Wanted to get everyone's opinions.
Myself and a few others wanted to know if anyone would be up for a cruise/photoshoot during the summer sometime?
I'm in the preliminary stages right now, but what I'm thinking about is having a cruise in the Central Florida area, which goes to/from 4 or 5 areas and provides photo opps for the participants. It would be free, just a cruise idea. (Unless I got a Professional Photographer which I would want everyone to equally help me out with paying for that service, but I'm really not sure about this)
I've been wanting shots of my car for a few months now, but I'm just an amateur photographer, however, I will gladly offer my mediocre skills and camera to take pics of my car and any others.
Any ideas for photo spots that I can take a ride to and plan this thing out? Thanks.

I'm always down for something like this.

My Chevelle should be up and running by then. I'm game.

Very cool. One of the spots that someone else is looking into is Daytona Speedway. I'll keep everyone up to date with any and all spots, and get a general consensus of where everyone wants to go.

It would be cool if we could drive on the speedway! :drive:

I REALLY doubt that anyone is gonna let us drive on the speedway.

Okay, I am throwing out all of the ideas that I have heard from everyone, and that I have. NONE of these are set in stone, and things might be added and taken away, Just trying to get everyone's thoughts.
Sunrise on the top of an Orlando Parking Garage.
Daytona Speedway Tunnels entrance, not actually going into the speedway.
Daytona Bridge (Can't remember the name of it, but the new one that was just constructed a few years back. The cars would be parked next to it, not on it, so the bridge would be the back-drop.)
Pictures on a runway with an airplane used as a back-drop.
Pictures in an Airplane hanger.
One of the mansions in Lake Forest in Sanford. (This would have a fountain in front, and the entrance tot eh house behind, two garage doors to your left and right.)
One of the larger houses in Heathrow.
And there are probably things that I'm forgetting.
What does everyone think about either May 5th or May 12th? Also, any ideas that you might have a connection with that are not listed above? I only want to have 4 maybe 5 locations, and I will list out the approximate times that we will be at the locations. For Instance:
Orlando Parking Garage: Sunrise for about an hour
Lake Forest Mansion: 8:00 am for about an hour
So on and so forth.

Im game. And I know a black T/A that would be in too.
As for a shoot idea. The suntrust parking garage on south st in downtown orlando would be perfect to get a lot of cars on. You have 55W being built and quite a few other tall buildings behind it. Just an idea.

Count me in. Also another silver Formula. I should have a few more appearance mods by that time.

Daytona Hooters has agreed to sponsor the event
Ed with the City of Orlando is helping me find locations for photography. He is the main photographer for the City of Orlando.
Parking Garages in Orlando is a no go. The shots that I was hoping for are none existent.
Can not get permission from the Speedway due to Traffic issues, so no picture in front of the tunnels.
Daytona Bridge Haven't had the opportunity to check the backdrops on this location yet.
Pictures on a runway with an airplane used as a back-drop. (Waiting on answer form owner)
Pictures in an Airplane hanger. (Waiting on answer form owner)
One of the mansions in Lake Forest in Sanford. Owner will be out of town this weekend.
One of the larger houses in Heathrow.Owner will be out of town this weekend.
So I am still trying, but right now I have the following locations:

I am 100% down for this. Let me know the time and date. Thread bookmarked!

I might be done for this, depending on when it is. And if you guys are looking for a good photographer, I got a friend who would be willing to do, really cheap too, especially compared to any other pro. Let me know if you want to see any of his pics.

Parking Garage is confirmed. It's the one off of Boone, next to the City of Orlando (City Hall).
04-19-2007, 01:13 PM
Sweet. I'll be there!
04-19-2007, 01:28 PM
Once I have all of the locations confirmed. I will start a new post with all of the info. This is kind of like my planning thread I guess. In that thread, it will show who all is going. I will need a count, because the garage and one other that I'm looking into has a cap on how many cars can go.
