(Also – a chance to win two free prizes)

The third week of October is shaping up to be a very exciting one for emerging professional photographers in the New York metro area. The GoingPro Bootcamp is Oct 24 in Newark, just across the river from New York City. Then on Oct 28, PDN opens the Photoplus Expo at Javits Convention Center. Now news of a Tweetup! But not just any Tweetup. It’s a free Tweetup for anyone who wants to stop by after the GoingPro Bootcamp on Sunday October 24 at the Sheraton Newark Airport Hotel, 128 Frontage Road, Newark, NJ 07144.

Join the Going Pro Bootcamp team for a Tweetup immediately following the end of the workshop at 5:45 pm. Scott Bourne will be giving a away a special door prize (or two). You must be present to win. But that’s not a problem because the Tweetup is free and open to everyone, not just Going Pro Bootcamp attendees. Come join us for a great night of networking. We will be meeting at the hotel bar. The event is officially an hour long, but stay and mingle as long as you like.

If you’re the shy type, have no fear. Christy will be there to make sure everyone gets to know you and vice versa. It’s going to be a great end to a great event. There are still some seats left for the GoingPro Bootcamp too.

If you can’t afford to go, perhaps you’d like a free ticket? We’re giving away two free tickets to randomly selected Tweeps who simply mention @GoingPro2010 in a tweet sent anytime before Friday Oct 8, 2010 5pm PST. Your odds of winning depend on how many people enter but heck, who knows? Someone will win. It could be you. For more information on the GoingPro Bootcamp, visit http://goingpro.eventbrite.com/.
