Hey Buddy, Thinking about coming down to Portland for this. When will we see the speakers and schedule?

Hey Ernst...My guess is at least a month. We want to bring in some new faces but many of the MSP mentors will be returning. The promise I will make is that it will be better than MSP...........I will ask you, What are 5 things you would like to have happen in Portland.....not speakers....5 specific challanges?

Schedule.....we finished it two weeks before MSP for that event but I am hoping to get something much sooner. We are trying to take it to a new place. MSP a number of the mentors started working together and that is our goal for Portland. Not just one viewpoint but different solutions to the same challanges

The images from MSP are just starting to come in...check out the Marathon Gallery:

Also...let me know what we want to do in Portland....There is talk of a romance theme...

It really blows me away how each one keeps getting better....I have to believe it is because the Mentors truly believe in the experience, no egos...no agenda's....just sharing and playing..

thanks everyone.

So tempting, so convenient, but I'm already booked those dates with another event in Dallas. Why does all the good stuff happen simultaneously?

Check out the Portland mentors at:

A number of new mentors will be making a first time appearance at after dark. We are trying to get more diverse so you have more choices to stimulate your mind and leave in a complete state of overload. Check out their sites:
James Hays - so many of the mentors have requested James
Peter Holcombe - A friend and his wife I consider as good as it gets when it comes to good people- Excellent studio systems and work:
Ryan and Andrea Zapatka- some of the most creative fusion work in the country
Jane Conner-Ziser - takes painter to a new place
Ken Sklute - one of the best educators in the country
Bert Behnke - an expert on creating a significant family portrait business


thanks. Dave

Portland After Dark is coming fast and we are excited about making the fourth After Dark the best yet!
The Educational grids are linked below, feel free to download the PDF's....and remember...they are just the begining of what is going to be shared...much of the best education is unscheduled sharing and spontaneous sharing.


We are running a one day $100 off AD Portland using the code "ADE".

Thanks everyone...Dave
