Hi, are there any Epz groups up in this area? If not is anybody interested in meeting for a coffee, with a view to sharing photographic knowledge / experiences / locations / tips etc etc.

Hi Peter, I stay in Forres so Aberdeen is bit out of my way, but I would be interested in meeting with you or anybody else somewhere in between.

Hi Brad, good to see I am not the only one up here, but so far we seem to be alone! Give it a few days and see if any others are about and arrange a common venue.
Will look forward tomeeting in any event.
PS, I am NOWHERE even close to your level of skills, so don't hope for a lot of prof expertise from me, but very willing to learn.

I am living in Cullen, not too far from Banff, where you took some of the really nice photos in your portfolio.
I will look out for any possible meet that is arranged.

I stay mostly in Aberdeen. Back to uni next week but unfortunately I am generally very busy in term time. I'll keep my eye on this thread and any possible meet though. Good to identify other members in this part of the world!

Hi all, great to see some fellow enthusiasts locally.

So, whats the thinking on a meet, evening, weekend, hotel, pub, partners inc? As for location, along the coast? perhaps Fochabers, that seems sort of central I think, though absolutely no idea of venue there.

Thoughts guys please, all suggestions welcome.


Tom, seems we are neighbours, did not think there would be someone that close, could travel together if you would like.

Allan, sorry it will probably be a bit far for you, but if things progress maybe a visit your way, I am sure lots of good phot ops there.

Hi Peter,
Yes Aberdeen is a bit too far for me but thanks for asking, nice to feel included! Hope you have a good turnout and an even better get-together.

Hi, I am in Inverness, again Aberdeen it bit too far but it is good to see who is up here.

Was in Banff earlier this year for a long weekend in a Haunted Castle, great coastline. (and the castle was okay too.)

Nice to hear from you Marie and John, perhaps catch up sometime.

What castle were you at John?

General all-

Not wishing to seem pushy as not intention and just thought it would be a chance to speak as opposed to typing! but is anybody still keen to meet? posted suggestion on 19th, see above, any thoughts at all guys and girls?

Fochabers sounds good to me, weekends are best for me as I work away quite a bit during the week. I'm not sure of any good photo locations around that area, or were you just thinking of a social meet?
24 Aug 2006 4:46AM
Hi Brad, pleased to hear back from you, open to suggestions about activity for meet, happy for just a chat over some refreshment of some kind and discuss options for a future venue.
Whatever, very happy to go with the flow. Hoping to hear back from Phil and Tom as they seem to be only other locals, perhaps Stephen if he is not away.

OK, be in touch, PS, preference to bring partner or not?
