    A Toronto Area gathering 7pm Saturday Jan. 29th.

    The time seems right for another Photography Gathering and you're invited. In fact everyone who wants to come is invited.
    I realize many people aren't in this area but who knows you could be working in Toronto during January.

    These gatherings are very casual and open to everyone who appreciates photography. We usually get about 20+ people.

    This is a chance to get together, see my new camera, meet some new people who have an interest in photography, and as always bring some prints and show what you've been shooting/printing/working on.... whether it's large format, rangefinder or digital, maybe you're printing in platinum or shooting with a Holga.... you're invited. This is an important part of the social so please try and bring a print or two, but if you just don't have anything... well come anyway.

    The cost of the evening social is $10 to cover the pop and pizza. Please RSVP by email. to "skeoch@sympatico.ca" just so I have an idea of the numbers.

    My studio is in Burlington, Ontario at 3123 Walkers Line.... just take Walkers Line north from the QEW past Dundas St. to the edge of town... I'm on the right hand side across from the cornfield, which is covered by two feet of snow.... the building looks like a commercial townhouse.

    If you want to see photos from the past gatherings go to "gatherings" at my website... www.bigcameraworkshops.com.

    I'm am maybe this time around. They are a nice night that I do like to attend.

    I think I may either be camping with my son, or off to see a theatre production with my wife. The socual life has been hectic this month; I have yet to firm up January yet.

    I'm afraid I can't make it now. My wife's cousin is having her birthday party that day even though it isn't her birthday... I will try for the next one. Sorry about that.

    Seriously, and it isn't even her real birthday. Her real birthday is near Christmas so she moved it. Honestly, I'm not making this up! I'm not even going, I'm home with the kids that night...

    Might be able to come out after all, will call it closer. That is if I'm still welcome after poo-pooing Canadian retail prices...

    I really wish I could be there. I'd love to meet up with everyone. Hopefully some of you can make it to Photostock. (Toronto is actually a lot closer for me, but I'm not available this weekend.)
