Invitation to join The Backsteppers

  • by

Dear Friends,

The Backsteppers is a traditional Social & Pleasure Club for Photographers.

Our first event will be a parade Friday, May 1, 2009 at the Fair Grounds beginning 12:00 noon SHARP. JazzFest is putting on a jazz funeral for Michael P. Smith and Snooks Eaglin beginning at the parade staging area, and heading to the Ancestors. We will be joining the procession en masse to honor their memory.

Our new logo has photographers walking backwards in a second line setting. It will be emblazoned on our banner and the matching T-shirts being made for us to wear during the event. Backsteppers T-shirts are $20.00, and they must be ordered no later than Saturday, April 24th.

Please send an e-mail to with your t-shirt size and we will place an order for you.

We will have our first meeting on Tuesday, April 28th from 4:30pm – 6:30pm, at the New Orleans Photo Alliance Gallery (1111 St Mary St). We’ll finalize the parade details, plan our next event and, if all goes well, the shirts will be ready. You can pick them up at our very first social!

Do you have eyes in the back of your head? Neither do we!

Be a Backstepper!
