For the past three years I’ve tried to think of ways to organize a photowalk with other film photographers. The annual VW ‘No Show’ is one of my favorite car shows. Not because I’m a car guy, or a Volkswagen fan. It’s just a fun car show that’s not too big, or too small. The VW owners are fun to talk with, and they enjoy having their cars photographed. Mark your calendar and save the date!
13th Annual ‘No Show’ Air-Cooled VW & Vintage Bicycle Gathering
Date: Saturday 18 August 2018
Start Time: 09:00 AM – Meet under the trees on the north-east corner of the park.
Estimated Duration: 2.0 hours

Start: 200 West Main Street (Bishop Field), Kaysville, UT, USA
On this photowalk, we’ll have the opportunity to photograph classic air-cooled Volkswagen’s and vintage bicycles. Please register for this photowalk at PhotoWalk.Me. By registering, you’ll receive updates on the photowalk, and can connect with other photographers to make carpool arrangements. Make sure to bring your favorite film camera(s) (or any camera), tripod, sunscreen, and water. More information on the show can be found on the VooDoo Kruizerz Facebook Page.
It’s rare that I get a camera, quickly shoot a roll a film, enjoy the camera so much that I immediately move to another roll of film. Again, the Miranda G is such a great camera. Don’t believe me, go read my post from last week. The second roll of film I shot with was some Film Photography Project Edu 200 Black & White. At $3.99, you can’t beat the price. The only drawback is it’s a thin plastic and can be difficult to scan.
The Annual VW “No Show” in Kaysville, Utah, is one of my favorite car shows. Not because I own a Volkswagen, or know much about cars. It’s the people at the show and the variety of photographic opportunities. The car owners are great to talk with. They love to share their knowledge about VW’s, often pointing out specific details of a particular year or model. The show usually consists of about 100+ cars. And it only takes a few hours to see everything and visit with people. Brian Thomson and his fellow VooDoo Kruizerz do an awesome job at hosting a fun show each year. Below are some photos from the VW show, make sure to click on the images and view the whole gallery. And if you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see some cars from another show.
