View Full Version : Local Olympus Photo Safari Groups - there's one closer than you think!

10th February 2009, 02:14 PM
Hello everyone,

as our membership continues to grow worldwide (over 730 Olympus Safari Group members, and an additional 1050+ report subscribers)... it's becoming more and more likely that there are a number of keen Olympus photographers in your area who would like to meet fellow enthusiasts.

Since getting out and shooting together is such a great way to learn and share experience, it's a core reason for the success of our group.

We're trying to find a way to make this easier, in a safe and optional manner for all of our members worldwide.

Thanks to the tremendous response we've had from our members all over the world, we now have over 40 Local Safari Groups, each having their own discussion page to help coordinate local events.

Please check to see if we have a group in your area, by clicking on the following link, and zooming in to your area.

If you don't yet have a local group, and would like to find fellow Olympus Safari Group members in your area please let us know, and we will create a group near to you.

Just a further note - we're not a forum... we continually forward our members to E-System Talk UK or any of the many excellent 4/3rds online forums for virtual chat. Our group is active on all forums and focused on getting out together to practice photography.

Hope that makes sense, and thank you for your kind support of this idea... we're one big step closer to having a free worldwide support network for Olympus photographers :)

Kind Regards
