Phoot Camp Afterglow

When planning the first Phoot Camp last year, I had a sense in my head of the magic. The energy in the air that would happen if I combined all those talented people, all those Internet friends who’d never met, all those like-minded strangers.

We had a great time, and got awfully close to what I’d imagined — and in some ways exceeded it. But this year, something took it to the next level.

Maybe it’s the fact that many of us are close friends still because of last year. Maybe it’s because we had about 10 more people. Maybe it was the pool, warm weather, and sunshine. Or maybe just a better understanding of what we were there to do.

In any case, I want to thank everyone involved (our sponsor, my 27 campers, our location agent Nancy Rigoli who found us the gorgeous estate, the models and guests who dropped by for the open house, etc.) for making last weekend truly memorable and impactful.

Follow @phootcamp on Twitter or bookmark for the photos and stories from the weekend! They should be up within a week or two.

I know I’ve said it a million times before, but I feel like the luckiest person alive. I’m so glad to have met all of you. #phootcamp” -@danielslee
