PODAS has officially kicked off today. Through out the day Phase One team members shuttled attendees in from Las Vegas airport. This went extremely well and all the flights and attendees made it without delay. After a cocktail reception from 5 – 6 PM, an opening program was presented. The evening kicked off with a multi-media presentation of photographs around Death Valley. This was followed by the distribution of camera systems to the attendees. Michael Reichmann capped the evening with a presentation to excite everyone about seeing things photographically. Below is the opening slide show. Check back soon for photos of opening night. For now it is off to bed as we leave at 4:45 AM for sunrise shots.
