Just thought it would be nice to hear people views for visiting EPZ ?

Heres mine :

To catch up on the latest photo news and products
To join in the odd healthy debate
Out of a sense of long standing loyalty !

I think i discovered ePz from a link on a site that was advertising a competition, but since then i have come back time and again to read up on the latest industry news, enter some comps and share some of my non-work related images.

Much more recently i have explored the forums, although i dont regard the forums as something that attracts me to the site. Getting involved as a Guest Editor on a couple of occasions has been a great way to see the broad spectrum of other members' styles and abilities, however.

I found EPZ about 9 years ago and have been participating on a regular basis ever since

Why, well the primary reason is because I enjoy it and would miss it if I didn't

A few specifics (but by no means all)

- I like looking at other peoples' work, both to admire and learn from
- I learn a lot form the information shared in the forums
- I find the reviews interesting and useful (an have contributed a few myself)
- I enjoy the "social" contact via the forums

So, I guess I will stick around a little longer Smile

In no particular order:

For the craic.
To learn and improve.
To understand.
To discuss.
To help, if I can.

It's become an integral part of my life, over the past 10 years, to the extent that asking me such a question is similar to asking "Why do you have breakfast?" Wink

Because we are a load of sad sods!!! Wink
Noooo, but I am sure some are LOL. I have met a few people here inTenerife who are EPZ members and its nice to meet up and have a chat or even go out on photo shoots. I enjoy going through the images and checking out the EXIF data. If I can help anyone out with a problem, all well and good. There´s certainly one or two characters on here, which certainly brighten my day up.

Once you have been a member for several years I suppose you just stop by as part of your daily routine.

Coz I have the link saved.
And cannot be arsed to search when pissed TongueWink

And all things considered it is probably the best.
Oh and I just like the people here.
I feel that you - me - new or old are a community - OK some may need a little care within, having been here for double figure star years. But It's a home base.

Pete I think you got it right.

I upload at least one Snap shot a Day, in the hope that one day one of them will get a readers award, then I will begin to think maybe I will one day get to take
Photographs.

There already is some Good stuff in your Pf just had a quick look Love - over and under.
Sometimes the time you post photo's makes a difference to who views or votes,as this site is almost world wide timing can gain or enhance voting. Never stop posting, sometimes I do but realize that the buzz from a great shot motivates you.
