Just thought I would put it out there...maybe we can get a group together and go somewhere for the better part of a day...might be great to meet up and learn from each other. :)
Any thoughts?
We can talk about it at my place when we do the photo swap draw. :)

Sounds interesting.

I'm thinking Big Hill Springs Park perhaps...great spot. But if anyone has any other ideas we can submit here or share at my place. :)

That's a great idea Casil. Someone at work was showing me Big Hill Springs pix on Google Earth a week ago. I thought at the time I should get up there. Count me in!

Just outta curiosity, I sent and email to Darwin Wiggett to ask if he might be available to do an outing/field trip/education session with us if we were agreeable to it.
I got a reply back but I dunno if anyone is interested but I will post the reply just in case.
FYI, if we can get enough of us interested, the cost could be worked out b/w all of us and might be reasonable. I would be willing to go in if others were. :)

Here's the reply:

Hi Lisa,

Sorry for the delay in responding, I was out on a photo field tour.

For a half day field tour (sunrise to noon, or noon to sunset), I charge $500 plus GST. You can have from 1 to 6 participants. People will be responsible for transportation to the meeting place and for their own meals. During the outing I will go around and help everyone out with specific questions as well as give some field demos on specific techniques. Hope that helps answer your questions.

I think that is out of my budget for now. However if people want to go out for a photo-shoot and then gather to show our favorites and our disappointments for critique and suggestions I'd be up for that. If we can get a hold of a projector I have a screen and a coffee pot, we could do the review here.

We could still do it on our own...I am more than willing to do that too...I was just curious, especially after a 1/2 bottle of wine. :D
Either way what ever the consensus decides, if anything, I am in.

I agree Casil. I'm for going out with the Photography.ca crowd and doing a slide show after. We can try Darwin in the summer when there are more hours between sun rise and noon:D
