Do you like to party and
to take photos? Of course you do. And that's why we have some awesome
news for you.
Join us next Saturday, August 6, 2011 at 1 p.m. for the first 500px Photo Party (we decided that "party" sounds much more fun than simply a photo walk). Andrey Tochilin and I will lead the walk, starting from Yonge and Dundas in Toronto. Rain (bring an umbrella!) or shine. Feel free to RSVP in the comments below so we have a rough idea of how many to expect.
Your AWESOME self
500px's first Photo Party (walk)
Southeast corner of Yonge and Dundas intersection, Toronto
1 p.m. - whenever
Pure fun times with cool 500px-ers!
See you there.
In other news, it's Friday and we have some behind-the-scenes photos to share of the boys hard at work at HQ. So you can rest assured that we're real friendly people and not evil robot overlords.
Arseniy, our Developer, loses himself in dizzying worlds of code. Nothing can break his concentration. His steely-eyed determination is only matched by...
...the flock of guardian owls on his Gelaskins-covered Macbook. They protect him, giving him superhuman endurance and keeping disastrous mistakes at bay.
Oleg, our Co-Founder and Technical Director
, has important calls to make with important people. Clearly! He just really likes to smile, and he'll make you smile too.
Andrey, our Marketing Director
, works with 500px partners and chats with users in a Google+ Hangout. If you ever have questions and want to talk one-on-one with someone at 500px, he's your man. His signature 70-200mm Canon lens mug sits on his desk.
And finally, here's Evgeny, our Co-Founder and Creative Director
. Five words for you: don't mess with this guy. I mean, he's really friendly, but would you want to get on the bad side of someone with that many screens to manage? Yeah, I wouldn't either.
EDIT: Because Andrey insisted, here's a picture of yours truly on my 500px-Gelaskinned Macbook with my 24-105mm Canon lens mug. He threatened me with evisceration if I didn't smile. Just kidding, I like smiling. And I'm 500px's Media Director.
Happy now, Andrey?
Time to get things done so the site can be the best it can be. Happy Friday from 500px HQ!
