Inspired from photostar's thread about finding a tog buddy, I thought this might be a good idea.

I'll be devising a list/sticky of sorts for those who enjoy meeting up with other togs in the areas for what I like to call 'jollies'. Local outings or mini trips out to take photos.

I personally like meeting up with other photographers locally, as do many other people on here.

Anyway, if you'd like to put your name down, put down the following information

I'll start

Area : Manchester / Bury
Sex : Male
Types of photography : Anything
Photography dislikes : Nothing
Short notice? : Sometimes
Weekends or Weekdays : Any
Day or Night : Any
Can travel : Yes
Has car : Yes


Does that sound like a plan?
If you can think of anything that should be added, feel free to suggest it, and add your own info (with as much or as little information as you feel comfortable with).

Marcel, brilliant idea but can i just make a suggestion, would it be a good idea to include your own self professed level of competence? I for one would be reluctant to accompany a professed pro for the simple reason I would not be comfortable given my lack of competence in this field. Regards Jim

I think you could turn that on it's head Jim. I know I'd be more than happy if I could help someone better translate their vision into an actual shot. :)

togg buddies, and within it make a few sticky posts split by areas ie

How about inside the "Meets" section, we have a list of regions? Then a representative for each region to organise meets? Works on another forum I use very well as I for example used to be a Cheshire Rep (Non tog related), I used to keep track of any new users in the area and basically introduce myself to them via pm and tell them to keep an eye on the regional chat section for upcoming meets etc. How does this sounds? It just makes it more personal imo :)
