I'm in. I can wrangle, and I also want to wear a snake.

Rock. Send me an email for address and whatnot.
C is totally up for helping out in the wrangling dept, and I can bring some amazing wardrobe, as well as sit in for modeling if/as needed.
Woot! That's absolutely wonderful!
Are there any things that you'll need for the amazing wardrobe? We can very likely fashion some sort of hanging apparatus out of bamboo if it's needed (and while I realize it sounds silly, I'm also kind of amused at the Crusoe-esque visuals that brings up :>)
My email is Eleanor.Justice@gmail.com -- drop me a note when you can, and I'll be sending out the details info email to folks shortly.
edit: Crap, forgot I signed up for a defensive combat workshop in VA that day.

On the upside, you'll be even better prepared to fend off ninjas so it all evens out.
Nice Duran Duran reference there Kyle

Year of the snake awesomeness
I'm in for a portrait. Maybe not with snake as I would like to use portrait for professional website for my beginning acupuncture business, so photo credits will add to someone's portfolio.
Then, maybe with snake, ya know, for my own fun. Hehehe

Re: Year of the snake awesomeness
You can totally go both ways, it's all good.
I'm in! Also happy to be an organizer/free participant if one is still needed. If not - how do I pay?
contact Eleanor Justice <email@example.com> she's making the Master List.
Oh, I WISH! I'm just too far away...
I am a photographer who really needs portrait practice, and a fan of snakes and camping and foresty farms and oh dear that's within reasonable driving distance. Interested! Oooh this could be rather a lot of very useful fun.
(Also I am so excited I keep re-editing not-quite-coherent comments. Sorry!)

Total grok on the excitement level -- it promises to be superfabulous!
Setting aside the fact that the distance involved is a little insurmountable right now - and not even mentioning the obvious fact that I would jump at a chance like this otherwise - there is one other problem with this workshop, for me. Just a TEENSY one.
I'm SNAKE PHOBIC.
if I turned up to this I'd spend most of the time curled up into a ball with my arms over my head or else standing frozen in a deer-in-the-headlingts kind of way - I saw a man die from snakebite in Africa, in less than 15 minutes, when I was an impressionable 11-year-old and for me there are no non-poisonous snakes. I can't look at them. I had to scroll past the pics in your post without looking too closely in order to leave THIS comment. It's utterly triggering for me.
Y'all have fun, though. Just don't bring those durn snakes anywhere near ME...
That must've been a hell of an experience, it sucks that you had it.
I will say that just two days ago I watched a woan who'd had a traumatic childhood copperhead experience tentatively touch Roswell, the World's Friendliest Ball Python, and in short order she was hanging out with a laid-back snake around her neck, and was able to transform her Major Snake Phobia into a non-issue, which to m, seems like a good thing. (I'm not a professional psychiatrist or anything, just a person who like seeing people change fear into something less limiting)
Anyhoo! My point: should you ever come to a point in your life where you feel like you might be ready to transform the residual fear from that very traumatic experience, I know a couple of girls who can probably help you move through it.
Hot Breakfast, Delaware's premier acoustic dork-rock power duo, is happy to serve as subjects. (We can't promise we won't serenade you with our rendition of Mr. Roboto. It's been known to happen.)
We're happy to wear a snake or not.
[Edited to add: What are the hours, roughly? Assuming it doesn't go super-late, we're in. We leave for California the next morning, so we'd have to bail around 6ish. If that doesn't work out for y'all, we'll take a raincheck. Thanks!]
Dork-rock power duo is the most delightful description I've heard today :)
Here's the timing:
10am - 4pm: Workshop with SNAKES!
5pm: Potluck dinner awesomeness, followed by hanging out around a campfire (bring marshmallows if you're into that kind of thing, or an instrument if you play)
Cost: $80 per person* (whether photographer or model)
Send payments to Kyle Cassidy at Cassidy@netaxs.com
*Part of the proceeds will benefit Faith & Eden's forming nonprofit snake rescue organization.
Thanks so much for the info!
and with that, we're gonna sit this one out. My better half convinced me I'm being "dumbitious" by packing in a day-trip to Harrisburg right before a week-long California trip, when we have three gigs back to back on the days prior to Harrisburg.
He's a smart guy, my guy. Next time, we're there!
"dumbitious" is a fabulous word. Also, anticipation is usually better than burnout -- have great gigs!
Hi There, my friend Maeve posted this on her Facebook. I think I am interested in being a model. I like snakes and I have a full back piece that I have been itching to get a good photo of... is there still space available? (Also, sadly, I will need to leave soon after the 4pm wrap up since I need to be back in MD/VA for an evening event.)
Fabulous! Yes, there is space, and I've got you on the model list. :>
Pop me an email at some point (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I can send you the big blurb o' info about the workshop.
