    Photographic buddy

    Well, I am here contemplating how I need to get out more and take more pictures...even though I feel guilty about it! Yep, guilty that I will be doing something without the family (family gets very bored when I am out photographing!!).

    Sooooo, I was wondering if there are any Southerners out there that would be able to come out to do afternoon shoots or morning shoots on the weekends, now that the weather is getting nicer. I enjoy doing photography by myself but I certainly enjoy company too.

    Any takers???

    You know I would, if I lived in SA. But seriously, taking a photographic buddy is really rewarding as I found out on a recent outing with a couple of pros from the city (pro's by meaning they run they're on photography workshops around WA) it's the different skill set and knowledge they bring to the table and they're willing to give you a few pointer - and not only that, they understand the lingo unlike our long-suffering partners!

    Well Adam...it looks like I will have to fly over to WA to have a buddy!! I know Rosemary has been trying to get us together for a shoot...but I thought there might just be someone who lived in maybe Goolwa or Victor area. Apparently not! . Or they just haven't popped on the computer and seen this!

    Join in on an SA meet Monika, that way you gain a few photo buddies and can catch up with different ones at different times.

    I have done a SA meet with Kym once. All the other times I have been unavailable or they are on the other side of the city (2 hr drive). Was hoping there was someone to connect with just to do a sunset shoot one night one weekend.

    Adelaide's geography is problematic

    I'll probably organise a southern districts meeting during the Christmas break

    Maybe Raywood Nursery (Deep creek), followed by Nangawooka outside Victor both with lots of birdlife

    This is exactly what I need, you must have read my mind. There are places I want to go but won't go alone for safety reasons so this could benefit us both. Pm me if you are happy to discuss details. I promise I'm not a nutter

    I know this thread is now a couple of years old, but ut's always relevant, don't we all need a "Buddy" to shoot with ??

    My New Years Resolution is to shoot more, so if the OP or anyone else (Southern area) is looking for someone with more gear than talent to shoot with, let me know !

    Particularly people / portraits ..........

    I'd like to say I'm not a nutter............

    Cheers,

    Hey Happysnapper, hope we get to see some of your photos on the forums for critique soon. You will find if you join in and make some online friends here, then people will be more interested in joining you in real life.

    I live down Semaphore way and would be happy to participate in a monthly (or whatever) get together on a Saturday. I work nights, Monday -> Friday, so joining the local Photography Club isn't going to work. I can also shoot Mondays and Wednesdays from mid-morning to mid-afteroon. Would love to have someone to shoot with, to compare notes and share ideas etc. I'm happy to meet halfway and I'm fond of a good coffee, cheers Deb

    I've been incredibly lazy with my photography lately. Hardly touched the camera in months.
    I should probably start an ACT thread along these same lines and see if other Canberra/Queanbeyan people want to get together for some photography. It might make me get my lazy butt out of bed, or off the lounge. I work shift work though, so it's hard to nail down specific days I'll always be available except for Mondays - I always have Mondays off.

    I also live West and would love a sunset buddy Generally it is always more fun to go out with someone and share ideas/tips. I'm about to join a camera club too, so I hope I might meet some new people there to shoot with.
