November 18: Kim Gottlieb-Walker on-set with John Carpenter

LADIG Presents Kim Gottlieb-Walker on-set with John Carpenter

Our friend Kim Gottlieb-Walker is going to show us images from her hot-off-the-presses photo book “On Set with John Carpenter”  and talk about her experience on set… and probably a lot of other interesting places she’s been.

Her incredibly varied career has covered everything from Jimi Hendrix and Bob Marley, to Cheers and Star Trek; some earthshaking classic music and television.

Her first photo book “Bob Marley and the Golden Age of Reggae” was published in Nov 2010.

Our monthly Event takes place at the Plummer Park Community Center in West Hollywood (map). The entrance is on Santa Monica Blvd at Martel Ave, there is adequate parking on-site (3 hr limit) with additional parking available at the north end of the park (accessible from Fountain Ave).


Note: Tickets to LADIG events are now free! We hope you’ll make a tax-deductible contribution to keep LADIG going and provide events like this in the future:

Wed, Oct 15: Architecture Photography with Barry Schwartz

Barry Schwartz shows off his architecture photography and explains his technique and approach including Lightroom and HDR processing.


Barry says, “I’m a photographer, writer, designer, and teacher; more-or-less in that order.”

He shoots architecture, interiors, landscape architecture, portraits, and documentary work for commercial and editorial clients.  You may have read his articles for ASMP or taken his class at Pasadena City College.

This meeting will be held at a special location:

The Canon Hollywood Professional Technology & Support Center
6060 Sunset Blvd
Hollywood, CA 90028

Doors open at 6pm for snacks and conversation. Bring your Lightroom and photography questions and we’ll help you out. Let’s talk about what you’re shooting, and how. A Canon representative will be on hand to answer questions and demo selected Canon cameras and lenses.

Presentation starts at 7pm: We’ll have a short Lightroom feature by Daniel Sofer and critique session by Greg Dyro; then Barry Schwartz will start around 7:30 or so.

There is street parking on Gower and Gordon Street: meter and free spots. No parking on Sunset Blvd. from 4-7pm, but it’s free after 7:00. If you’re transit oriented, the Metro Red Line Hollywood & Vine Station is less than a 1/2 mile away.
