Read about the all-stars who attended Phoot Camp 2011, a creative retreat for photogeeks.

More than 200 people sent enthusiastic applications to trek out to an RV park in Marfa, Texas with a bunch of strangers. I didn’t have anything fancy to offer them or any elaborate tricks up my sleeve. I just got 35 photographers with talent and passion up to their gills, and put them together in an RV park. It wouldn’t have worked without the creative energy, willingness to share, and startling spirits that they each brought.

Check out their submitted self portraits and some excerpts from their applications to see what I mean about this group of inspiring all-stars.
