    TAS: AP National Meets Day : 2/3 June 2012

    Ausphotography National Meetup Day's.
    2nd & 3rd June 2012.

    Let's get the ball rolling for a meet or two across Tasmania for the AP National Meet-ups Day. For those that haven't seen it, we are trying to organise co-ordinated meets across Australia, on the same weekend.

    Any suggestions on what we do? and where we do it?

    Any day of that weekend is okay for me - the other two days are going to be brushcutting anyway.
    Too tired tonight to suggest where/what

    Jeez I hate writing job applications (being in a temp position but having a permanent one I don't want to go back to)! And tired through long preparations for a major system upgrade this weekend.

    Do any other Taswegians have preferences for dates/times/locations?

    What if we did an 'around Hobart' entire day meet?

    We could plan a day out and do things like

    Sunrise from Sandy Bay Beach/ Seven Mile Beach
    breakfast
    Zoodoo or Bonnorong
    Richmond
    lunch
    Mt Wellington (snow hopefully)
    Strickland Falls
    Sunset shoot from Bellerive/Lindisfarne
    Dinner

    We could also incorporate some portraiture during the day, for those that are not into landscapes. Maybe look at somewhere like the botanical gardens as a location to fit in a portrait session. We could use each other as 'models'.

    People could come and go to the various 'sessions' as they could fit into their schedule. If this idea is liked, we could amend my suggested list above, as others come up with location suggestions, ideas, and plan a full day of activities.

    I would personally prefer the Saturday (2nd June), but am happy to go with the Sunday if it's what most want.

    Looks like a good selection to me Rick. Hopefully Tassie will get a good turnout. I think I should be able to make it either day.

    Almost any of those ideas sounds good to me Rick! (With the exception of me being a model )

    I think we'll probably only get a small number to any in the state, so rather than sessions, maybe we will need either a statewide one, or a north / south one (sorry NW)!

    I'll go with others too - I can make Saturday or Sunday, weeds at this time of year can wait a day...

    OK. so lets start off with Saturday the 2nd June.

    * Sunrise at Sandy Bay Beach (sunrise is 7.32am) so maybe a 6.00am start to get setup and get the dawn shots? Meet at the carpark at the beach where the swimming platform is?

    * Breakfast at Dome Sandy Bay

    Where to from there?

    Mornings on a Saturday are a bit of a push! That hour then breakfast might do me in.
    Zoodoo / Bonnorong, Richmond and lunch?
    Or maybe I'll come to part of the day...

    We can skip sunrise, and make it a Richmond during the morning, then lunch and into zoodoo or bonnorong. I am open to all suggestions and ideas here for what we do.

    Your plans sound good Rick. Will see if Jules makes it, and any other interest before then...

    Yep I can come along, A sunrise could be good, maybe do that and put the option there for others to join later if they want to.
    I'm fairly easy for what to do on the day, perhaps even decide on a first meeting place and play the rest by ear??

    Glad you can make it Sam. I'm inclined to meet sometime after sunrise, not an early starter. Maybe yourself and Rick and whoever else can do that and I'll meet up a bit later?

    OK. Time to get a plan happening:

    Saturday 2nd June

    6.00 AM - Sunrise - Sandy Bay Beach (meet at the car park at the wood-fired pizza place)

    8.00 AM - Breakfast - Location to be decided by those at Sunrise Meet. (Macca's..hehe)

    9.30 AM - Richmond - Bridge photos, photos around the village - Meet at the Bridge carpark

    12.00 PM - Lunch - At Richmond

    1.30 PM - ZooDoo and/or Bonnarong? - for animal photos including the Lions and Tigers are ZooDoo

    Any other locations we decide upon, on the day. If there is snow on Mt Wellington and its accessible, we could include a trip to the summit. If some want to continue after 4.30 pm, we could do a sunset shoot somewhere along the Derwent shores

    4.30 PM - Finish

    *this itinerary can be modified as the week progresses*

    Itinerary looks good to me.

    You're hoping to get some product shots too I see Rick?

    I'll be there by mid-late morning and find everyone somewhere in Richmond before lunch.

    I'd been thinking that this was over the long weekend, but it turns out that's the following weekend. Still, I'm in!

    I'll be there for the sunrise shoot and breakfast. Not sure that I'll be able to make it to any of the other locations though unfortunately.
