View Full Version : Sydney meet - saturday, 9th march

17-02-2013, 11:32am
Hello my lovelies.

It's been a little while since our last meet and I am running out of ideas. Remember also, that anyone can call for a meet, not just me. :D I am thinking that Saturday, 9th March might be a good day.

I have attached a poll as to what type of meet we would all like so please put in your vote and post any ideas you might have. Once we find out the type of meet then we can decide where and when. If we do a portrait shoot it might involve a small amount of money if we decide to hire a model.

Bummer!! I can't go on 9th March as I will be at a Nippers Carnival which is a three day event at Patonga....we are camping!:eek: I would have been more than happy to contribute toward a model if I were able to go.

I voted portrait for next meet but I meant next meet I could go to!!!LOL:lol:

No worries Karen. If there isn't much of a response then March 9 may not be a goer. I may be able to move it the 16th. Just keep an eye on the thread and see what pans out. :)

Hi there, great thought to organise a meet. I can't do either 9th nor 16th. march is a busy month as both my mum and Ben have their birthdays on the same date (14th and possible party on 16th) and this year my in-laws are moving (9th) so i'm no good for either. Sorry, I am not having much luck with meets lately :-(
can't wait to see your images though !!

9th March we pick up visitors from NZ and on the 16th we will be in Canberra for a couple of days.:o

18-02-2013, 7:14am
9th should be ok for us.. 16 is out

18-02-2013, 11:44am
Could do either date as long as they are afternoon/evening meets.

18-02-2013, 9:49pm
Hi all,
Recently joined, looking forward to getting out and improving my photography. 9th & 16th are good.

18-02-2013, 10:03pm
Hello everyone,
would love to meet more APers and join you guys for a shoot one of these days. I'm happy to go along with the consensus re: theme.
Free on both days at the moment but only after 3pm.

Hi Nellie, I am in. I would need to check my diary re suitable dates but possibly later March is better as it will give a few weeks notice after sorting out what to do and where. If you want sunrise - better too as late pre-end of daylight saving gives better timing. Maybe a cityscape sunrise.

19-02-2013, 8:18am
Ok with us

19-02-2013, 6:46pm
It should be OK.

19-02-2013, 8:39pm
Looks like your going to have to put up with me again, I'm in. :)

Oh, for the 30th March.

19-02-2013, 10:28pm
No worries Karen. If there isn't much of a response then March 9 may not be a goer. I may be able to move it the 16th. Just keep an eye on the thread and see what pans out. :)

Will do.....haven't been online much recently soooooooooooo busy organising band camp for my daughter's school:)

Sorry guys can't do Easter saturday it's my wedding anniversary......first time since weve beeen married that the 30th March has fallen on a Saturday....same day of week we were married. Hubby has planned very nice night out!!

19-02-2013, 10:59pm
Only happy with that date if you all buy me a birthday present :D It's obviously a good day for Karen too ;)

19-02-2013, 11:49pm
Hi, 30th okay with me,

20-02-2013, 8:15am
Only happy with that date if you all buy me a birthday present :D It's obviously a good day for Karen too ;)

We'll take you out for a birthday dinner Ness before /after the meet! :D

The 30th is now a better day for me as my hubby informed me that he had planned for us to go away for the weekend on 9th or the 16th before it starts getting too cold at the South Coast beaches.

22-02-2013, 8:22pm
Hi there, 30th is in the diary now. Looking forward to it and seeing you all :tog:

22-02-2013, 10:12pm
OK - Looks like the 30TH MARCH is a better date so lets lock that in. So far it looks like an evening meet in the city for a sunset and night shoot. :)

23-02-2013, 11:19pm
Sounds good to me.

Hey, come on you Sydney togs come along to the shoot and have some fun shooting and sharing some tips. We want to see some new faces.
We have a great mix of talent in the group and we all learn from each other.

I shall try to come also.

If you are looking for a venue, may I suggest Rodd Park.
Near Drumoyne/Five dock.

It would be nice for water/boat(ish) and skyline pictures.

It is also close to that bridge.... near Birken Head.

25-02-2013, 7:05pm
Thanks Mr Felix - will keep the venue in mind when we finally decide where we will hold the meet. We have another month yet to make up our minds.:confused013

25-02-2013, 7:27pm
I think this is a great idea. I can't make it at the moment as I am taking things easy at the moment. I would DEFINITELY be up for a zoo trip at the end of the year - I have a guest pass for someone else to get free entry in, plus cheaper parking, but I'm out for awhile. Hope you enjoy your outing!!

25-02-2013, 8:44pm
hi Guys Have a great night on the 30th! As I said before I can't come on that date so will have to wait until the next one!:):):)

28-02-2013, 4:37pm
I am very new to AP but keen to be involved. Unfortunately I can't make 30th though. Look forward to future dates.

01-03-2013, 8:58am
You would be most welcomed Bulley61 - we are a very friendly bunch and we all learn from each other. There are a few of us that live in the Kellyville/Castle Hill area and we often car pool to our meets - always good to have another driver on board. :)
We usually average one meet a month/2 x months so keep an eye on this forum for future meets. Pity you can't make this one.

02-03-2013, 12:17pm
Hi all,
I'll be coming from thornleigh area if anyone wants a lift.

02-03-2013, 6:37pm
Hallo everyone,
looks like I have also time on that WE.
I would also like to join in!
It would be nice to put some Faces to the name :)!
Cheers Klaus!

02-03-2013, 11:38pm
It's great to see some of you new members joining in. :)

03-03-2013, 3:04am
I am off work ATM so its a big maybe!

08-03-2013, 10:56pm
Hey Everyone.........It looks like I can make it on the 30th after all!!:)
Hubby now has to fly to Denmark for work that week so I will be celebrating my wedding anniversary alone:(.....I may as well come along and join in the festivities!!:tog:

08-03-2013, 11:21pm
Good news Karen - we'll celebrate it with you!
It looks like it is going to be an evening shoot of City Lights but I have yet to think of where we should go, so if anybody has suggestions please post them here very soon.
So far we have suggestions of:
Darling Harbour, The Rocks, Mrs Macquarie's Chair, Kirribili Point.

I am thinking maybe Darling Harbour might be interesting and we could meet and have dinner beforehand within the area. :confused013

08-03-2013, 11:29pm
Having dinner somewhere beforehand is very appealing to me as !:)

09-03-2013, 7:31am
sounds good to us

09-03-2013, 10:09am
Sounds good. Did you know there is a hoopla festival on at Darling Harbour that weekend?


09-03-2013, 4:52pm
I didn't know that Pete......so do you think we should give the area a miss if thee is going to be big crowds?

09-03-2013, 6:38pm
We've been down there on a previous Hoopla festival weekend. Yes it's busy but so are most Darling harbour weekends. Definitely events taking place which could be photographed. May need to book somewhere to eat that's all or have a picnic :-) with bubbles as there's lots to celebrate ;)

09-03-2013, 6:57pm
If we go to Darling Harbour I will probably park at the Cinema Center Car Park.
Just let me know where and when to meet you.
Karen, we will have to try and do a nice anniversary portrait for you.

09-03-2013, 10:50pm
I didn't know that Pete......so do you think we should give the area a miss if thee is going to be big crowds?

I thought I said "sounds good" ;)

11-03-2013, 8:37pm
Hope you are good at photoshop!!:lol:

16-03-2013, 6:02pm
Count me and my wife in. Will be good to see every one again.


Mr Felix
24-03-2013, 8:18am
So it is 30 March, in the city - maybe Darling harbour.

That is all I can resolve so far.

I shall keep my ear to the ground and await more details.

Looking forward to it.

24-03-2013, 9:18am
Mr Felix - I have started another thread giving the details here:
