Next Olympus UK Photo Safari... 27th April 2008

Brian has done it again


He has managed to secure an exclusive invitation of Jackie James - the owner of a private collection of leopards, panthers and other big cats, for Sunday the 27th April.

He will be trying to secure a 14-35mm f2 and E-520 for use on the day...
although a slightly longer lens may be a better option for the subject in hand.

He's posted an announcement on dpreview, along with a few photos he
took during his visit:

If anyone is interested in joining in, all they have to do is drop him an e-mail.

Here's the map reference :

There are 8 cats available to photograph, and we'll be arriving at the house
at 1pm to set up, in time for feeding the cats at 2pm - there's a big
garden and plenty of space to relax and chat.

This will be an amazing photographic opportunity... and a great place
to have a relaxing get together. Brian will be sending out exact timings
and an agenda in due course. So keep an eye out for it...

There will be no charge for this event, but you will be encouraged
to leave Jackie a voluntary contribution if you think it's a worthwhile
day out.

Hope to see you there

Graham

John,

I do hope he gets his hands on one as I am quite interested in seeing it

That's what was in the original message Brian sent to me, so if you are interested then send him and e-mail and express your interest.

Regards

Graham
