Seattle/Tacoma PUG BBQ

Seattle/Tacoma PUG BBQ

I went to my first PUG (Pictage User Group) meeting a few weeks ago with Mark, who's been to at least one before. Even though we don't use Pictage, they are a welcoming group and welcome any photographer to come to their meetings. They are made up of mostly wedding and portrait photographers. There is a Tacoma PUG and Seattle PUG group, but the Seattle group seems to have merged with the Tacoma one.

The BBQ took place in Seattle on Alex Rubin's rooftop deck and was organized by Airika and Gerald Pope. Everyone brought a little something to share. We ended up bringing what I would call tostada cups. They were made with Phyllo pastry cups filled with refried beans, cheese, lettuce, and sour cream. I got the idea from a recipe I found online for taco cups but I decided to change up the recipe a bit by including the refried beans. They seemed to go pretty quick.

Not too many people brought cameras which was a little surprising. We brought ours but ended up not taking very many pics because we were busy meeting and chatting. We didn't really know any of the other photographers there but had heard of several of them from their great work. We enjoyed meeting everyone and checking out a few of their websites.

We are looking forward to the next meeting in Tacoma where Jeff and Erin Youngren will be guest speaking. More details are on the Tacoma Pug Facebook page if you're interested.
