Hey guys,

was wondering what ever happened to the photographic club? if im not mistaken there have been only two? The one i went to was hosted by switchback and learnt a lot from other photographers.

Why not lets try our luck on a third one? any ideas and dates? pref. places in jhb ?

Hi Massimo,

Yes, I have organised both previous ones and have since tried to organise more outings, but because of a lack of interrest they were cancelled.

In the beginning there was quite a bit of interrest in a SANParks Camera Club with the purpose of such outings and to have an exclusive club. I'd say you are more than welcome to organise us another one and hopefully there will be more interrest this time. I'll be the first to attend such an event again! 8)

A place with a nice bird hide or something alike is always a good idea. :thumbs_up:

Hi Massimo,

I know it is frustrating to organise something if there is little interrest, but let's try again, even if only a few show up?

Ok we can try again. I had a back op on Friday so lets make it in 3 weeks time around the 23rd of July. I know the monkey sanctuary (harties) offer discount to photography groups so lets try there? or Austin Roberts bird sanctuary...
