Thumbs up Jessops display photo contributors meet

Last Sunday some of the e-group members whose images made it to be featured in Olympus's retail display in the Jessops Oxford Street store met up with myself and Olympus' Mark Thackara:



Left to right: Me (Ian Burley), StephenL, Invicta, and Benvendetta

Here are some close-ups of the images - hopefully you can just read the captions:









Afterwards we went on to visit the new Olympus Image Space venue with RockArchive at 199 Bishopsgate in the City of London (very close to Liverpool Street Station):





We were blessed with great Spring sunshine and I have posted my own unrelated shots from the same day over at DPNow here:

Thanks all for trekking in to London for the day (Dave (Benvendetta) came all the way from South Wales for the day!) and for Mark Thackara for looking after us!

Mark has confirmed that we will be able to use the Image Space venue for e-group events so we're now donning thinking caps to work out what we can do with the resource - all suggestions gladly received!

Ian

Thanks to Mark and Ian for organising this. The Image Space has great potential, which we discussed over a very decent lunch.

Re: Jessops display photo contributors meet

Thoroughly enjoyable day out for me. Weather was great as was lunch. The gallery is a superb resource if you are into rock music with some inspiring images of Zeppelin, Bowie, the Stones, the Ramones, Floyd and many others (all for sale I hasten to add, but not cheap ). It would be great to get the EGroup work it there too. Managed to get some photography done as well, and I will try and post images in FF when processed.
Thanks to Ian and Mark for organasing this, and the original compo. Great to meet Stephen and David too!

Ha ha! That is the way it should be.
Seriously, there is no reason why we couldn't sell our prints there with the gallery taking a commission.

It looks like you all had a good time, I am sorry I was unable to join you. The display looks good.

If there was one person that should have been there, it would have been you Shirley. Hopefully something can be arranged for you and the other winners.

Awww thank you Stephen and Dave, kind of you to say so. It would have been nice to meet you both. I don't expect anything else to be arranged, I was given the same opportunity as everybody else, just couldn't make it.

Re: Jessops display photo contributors meet

Many thanks to Ian and Mark; especially Mark who paid the bill.

It was a great day out.

Interesting to listen to Mark about how camera sales work in places like Jessops.

I also understand Image Space now. If you fancy buying a print you can do so at http://rockarchive.com. Think I will have to manage with a postcard of Debbie Harry although the prints could be an investment.

We had a good meal to finish the day. I wish there could have been more attendees present but it was great to meet Dave and Stephen.
