    Hello All,

    I spoke about this in my 2015 post but I am starting some monthly photography meetups in Sydney. The idea behind the gathering is to meet some other photographers, talk about gear, play with some funky toys, learn a thing or two and encourage people to get out there and shoot.

    First get together is going to be this coming Wednesday at The Henson in Marrickville (http://www.thehenson.com.au/) from 6:30 onwards.

    If you want to come along just reply in here or drop me a PM.

    I dont plan on booking the space, but there is lots of room and they have good food/drinks too.

    Hope to see some of you there.. friendly faces old and new :thumbup:

    I'm in to tick off my annual social gathering :lol:. Can't guarantee I'll make since there's a few things going on next week.

    Sounds like a drink/chat thing only yeh? Either way my camera will probably be in my work bag anyway :)

    I am not fond of a photo walk tbh.. its just going to be a casual meet up of sorts. From there people can organize to go shooting another time or before/after planned catchups.

    Bring your camera if you want, you can talk/show or mess about with it if you like. I might bring some of my odd film cameras to each meet if people want to see/play.

    Also hoping since it will be at one place each time, its easier for people to attend on a regular basis.

    Will keep it at The Henson for now, but may move it to Surry Hills or somewhere near Central for future meetups.

    You both missed a good night! Don't worry, there will be another... in early March.

    Thanks to 2SHY for coming along, was great meeting you.

    And to Zee, Onrelas and dche5390 for joining along with about 10 other photographers, was a good turn out.

    OCAU needs to pick up its game tho :p

    Was a good night - cool place and good food & beer.

    Good choice of venue, I think.
