Photography Show

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

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

Re: Photography Show

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?

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

Re: Photography Show

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.

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.

Re: Photography Show

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