I wonder if there's enough photographers in and around Lincoln (about a 20 mile radius of Lincoln) interested in getting together, say once a month, to share photo shoots (any subject, style or place), skills, knowledge, coffee ... Nothing too formal - or expensive! - just a bunch of like minded, almost certainly amateur, photographers interested in sharing their time and interest. Any gender, any age, even Nikon and Canon users would be made very welcome. Let me know. Thanks,

As this posting has had just one response, it seems obvious that the idea is a non-starter which is both surprising and disappointing.

Is it as surprising as you indicate?
A cafe prepared to allocate perhaps 10-15 places specifically for a group meeting would need to be found.
Some pubs may have a meeting room. Village and Church Halls tend to charge £20 or more for a small meeting room.

Ideally space for a projector or some-one prepared to host Zoom meetings is needed to better share results.

Many Camera Clubs have sub-groups doing this sort of thing - maybe via a Facebook group.

One group I am in in Yorkshire has afternoon outdoor meets every second week and indoor meets in the Town Hall afternoons every second week to review results.
Because of the costs membership costs - £9 a month - though there is usually enough in surplus for an outing booking with a professional at least once a year.
We do have digital projector bought from our funds.
Sorry - no such thing as a free bank account for this type of start-up any more.

Networking can help.
I meet up - but not on a formal basis - with other wildlife and cycle racing photographers.

If you are a relatively well off Nikon shooter and a Nikon Owner at Grays of Westminster there are a few Nikon Owner groups who do this sort of thing on a local basis.

I didn't read this as a kind of camera club - just an informal meeting somewhere outdoors to take photographs as a group, perhaps book a pub or similar for lunch and then trot off to a different location after lunch. When there was a Fuji site we did this fairly of ten. I remember 'meet-ups' arranged in Liverpool area, London area, several in the Lake District, several in different parts of Wales. The one I remember most was one down here in Dorset - we arranged to meet at Portland - and there were about 18 of us - we spent the morning around Portland bill, some folk moving further than others, we had booked lunch at a pub in West Bay then spent the afternoon in and around that area. Those that were without transport were 'transported' by those who were mobile, so that anyone who had arrived by foot or local transport and then they were returned to a suitable dropping off point at the end of the afternoon. It was a splendid day and so lovely to meet people who we had 'chatted' to for some years and exchanged ideas and for those who love looking at others gear a fest of all sorts. Lincoln I would have thought would lend itself to this sort of informal meeting - so many areas around and about which offer a great deal to photographers. I hope that some more folk come forward as I can guarantee it is really worth the very little effort it takes to organise.

I am not too far from Lincoln (about 25 miles) so could consider participating.
Informal gathering in a pub or cafe and then a visit somewhere to take a few images sounds good, the following meeting could then involve a critique from the previous outing to see where we all went wrong.
With the lighter nights on the horizon it could be a good time to start it off.
