Photography Show
 
It's time for the annual thread regarding the Photography Show in the celestial city of Brum :D

I'm going on the Monday so to start things off can I suggest a meet at 12:00 on the Oly stand. At the very least we can say hello and have a chat. If so inclined we could wander off for a coffee unless of course Ian organises light refreshments on the stand ;)

cheers

Hec

Me too, Sunday.

Yes, I'm there on Sunday.

I note that Steve Gosling is giving a talk on the Oly stand at 12.15: maybe meet up for a chat and a spot of lunch after that?

I must say that I haven't looked at the talks, but will sus 'em out when I get back from sunnier climes, Tenerife.

I'll be there Monday too. Noon on the stand sounds like a fine plan!

They aren't making it obvious, but the various talks are listed on the Show's Image Space page:
http://www.olympus-imagespace.co.uk/tps-2017/

Steve's also talking at 3pm on the Saturday but I'm booked in to hear Alex Webb then.

I was going to go on the Sunday with my club but now have something else on that day. Was hoping to go on the Monday but after weighing up the cost of the ticket, petrol and parking I was looking at over 40. I could buy some bits and pieces with that. It would have been half that amount if I was going with the club.

Wee man 7th March 2017 02:01 PM

Re: Photography Show
 
Much the same here cheapest flight 85 plus parking etc.
Will miss the craic and free sensor clean and meeting up with good friends. Hec you will have to go round the show and report back on what made you grumpy to keep me in the loop.

I was thinking of going up on Monday. Happy to share transport and cost with anyone else going from the Cardiff/Newport area?

drmarkf 7th March 2017 03:48 PM

Re: Photography Show
 
Anyone know if sensor cleans are on offer again this time?

That really does help defray a lot of the costs of attending...

Re: Photography Show

Consider it done :)

Shame our annual chat won't happen this year but certainly understand the economics. I thought about this year and I'm driving rather than train as it's sadly cheaper even with 12 car parking.

I am sure I read somewhere that they are doing the checks and cleaning. Probably Facebook. Here is a link, http://www.olympus-imagespace.co.uk/...re-show-guide/

Bril, thanks Dave. Both bodies will be packed!

Good to see Claire in that first photo emanating her usual calm and restrained sophistication :D

Looking forwards to meeting a few people for the first time.

In the past there's been a small presentation area within the stand with a screen and seats and the talks take place there. Get there early to bag a seat.

As I recall it's varied quite a bit in size over the years, but obviously we can check that on arrival.
It'll be good to see Steve again: he's a nice guy and full of real-world advice.

Ticket now booked for Monday, so hopefully nothing will get in the way and I may see some of you there!
