    Hi all,

    The title is a bit of a mouthful but I thought I'd start a separate thread from the East/Southeast thread to avoid confusion, not be exclusive to black & white, and possibly prompt more interest in a local and / or regional meet up(s). Phill Dresser and Spencer Taylor have expressed an interest on the other thread, but I know there are many more APUG members in the region....

    So if you're interested, perhaps you could think about responding to this thread.

    Tom.

    A possibility... I'm not sure we need an official title, I guess it depends on how "analogue" you want to be. Personally, I think the agenda should be flexible, in terms of full analogue : hybrid etc.

    Excellent ide, Tom. Keep me posted. Work and my expanding family has clipped my wings a bit lately so a local meet-up would be great!

    Rob,

    I still haven't scanned in the photos from the APUG UK meet up in October 2006! I seem to remember I have a shot of you and also Richard Kelham(sp?). My current thoughts lean towards a daytime get-together, with discussion, print showings, and maybe some photography or practical sessions etc.

    Tom.

    Hi Mark,

    If you don't mind the journey time, I don't see a problem.

    Journey and meeting up...

    Hi Guys - I don't mind the journey at all - it would give me a good excuse to call on an old friend or two at the same time.

    Going out on photo jaunts is one of the main reasons I got the campervan in the first place!

My first visit to Britain about 45 years ago...Great Yarmouth, Norwich, the wonderful cathedral of Ely, Newmarket racing course... Lowestoft, The most Easterly point of the British Isles... Devils Dyke... speed boat racing on the broads...
    Lovely!

    I dont want to hijack this post but I just had a thought , if any of you guys local to me are interested in coming down to my house in cambridge at a weekend in the near future that might interesting. I am in no way suggesting that this takes the place of Tom's get together as i would like to go to that aswell.
    One of the the reason being is that i still have my exhibition up of my B/W, Cyanotype prints up for Cambridge Open studios. (Open studios for those that dont know is when members of the public open up their houses/studios to the general public for viewing their 'Art' work.) Maybe have a BBQ etc..

    if interested email me or post on here and i can try and move things on.

    If this would be a group that welcomes hybrid colour work, I'd be interested in joining. I'm in East Kent.

    Regards,

    David

    Sorry all about no reply, I've been meaning to post a message for a week or so... In response to David H B, I have absolutely no objection to hybrid work, and that is partly why I wrote 'APUG related', rather than East Anglia Monochrome - Analogue Only'...

    Davec101, thanks for your interest, that sounds like a good idea if you still have an exhibition up.

    There seems to be two points of interest, one centered around Cambridge, and another around Norwich.

    Tom.

    @Davec101

    I noticed your open studio in the listings, but was in the New Forest at the time. I have a heavy printing schedule, but would be keen to pay a visit.

    two meets...

    I wouldn't mind seeing some of those Cyanotypes - having read about Open Studios - I would like to be a nuisance and pop in if you don't mind - but also will happily troll along to the other suggested meet. As discussed before.

    My future get together dates are getting a little congested though - so would anyone like to suggest some physical dates shortly Shirley?

    To move things on a bit, If i just put down some dates please email or post to say that you would like to come to the Cambridge 'meet'. At the moment i am free the weekends of Saturday 25th-26th August, and Saturday 8th-9th September. After that i get rather busy. The date where most people can come will be the obvious choice to choose.

    To aviod any confusion from the start my cyanotype work is hybrid i.e shot on film,scanned, output to transparency, then printed using cyanotype senistiser on watercolour paper. i think most people know that but just wanted to make it clear. My work is moving more into that realm at the moment, Of late i have been trying out Polymer Photogravure, another hybrid technique, which creates stunning prints when done correctly, but can be very frustraiting like most alt processes!

    Just an update. Ian Leake has confirmed that he would like to attend the cambridge meet up. He is going to bring along some of his beautiful platinum prints and talk a bit about the platinum workshops that he might be doing in the near future. I for one have been looking forward to seeing his work.

    This does sound interesting, and a very kind offer of David's - I would definitely like to see your exhibition, David.

    I'm not sure that I can make either of the dates though! If not, maybe the next time. I'll let you know.

    I have no objection to hybrid work, indeed I'd like someone to explain digital negs to me !! (in two easy sentences.....).

    edit- just to clarify, that wasn't entirely serious! And I do appreciate even it were possible to explain in two sentences people may not wish to have such issues discussed (which is a bit different from showing prints).
