    Melbourne APUG Get-Together Soonish

    If I had been a bit more organised I would have tried to organise an APUG get-together to coincide with the Camberwell Photography Market. But I wasn't. However, since it has been a while, who is interested in catching up some time soon, say in the next week or two??? There may even be a couple of interstaters who can or will be in Melbourne soon anyway, so it could maybe be a bit later than that. So, who would like to catch up soon, when and where? I think around the CBD usually works better, but all suggestions will be considered.

    I would be interested, Easter is next weekend, perhaps as ANZAC day falls on a Saturday we could meet then, and catch a game of swy on the side?

    Whatever.

    Nick, regarding LF people, perhaps a get together of LF photographers could be a worthy thing for a separate meeting. Generally speaking LF requires a minimal amount of walking around, not always though. Plus you usually require tripods, which without a valid permit, are illegal in Melbourne.

    Failing that you need to have tripod insurance if you don't have the permit, I kid you not!

    For some time I have thought that there are more than a few LF photographers in Melbourne, but newcomers have virtually nowhere to go shop wise to figure out what exactly LF is.

    I thought we could have a ½ day meeting somewhere, where people with LF cameras and other equipment would front up. Whilst people who are thinking of LF one way or the other, could rock up and ask all the questions they can think of. Or something like that.

    Could be some interesting LF trading and/or bartering, on the side as well

    Mick.

    I'm game!! Hey Mick - since when were tripods illegal in Melbourne - last time I was bothered by an overzealous security guard (whilst setting up a tripod and Graphic View opp the QV centre), I emailed the Melbourne Film Office, and they indicated that amateur photography of any kind (and I DID specifiy my setup specifically) was welcome and supported - in fact, they complained to QV management on my behalf... That was only a couple of years ago.

    Marc!

    Marc, for quite some time, maybe around 10 - 12 years you have needed a permit to use a tripod in the CBD.

    Whether or not they enforce is another matter, although when CHOGM came to town anyone with a tripod was banned from the areas deemed to be a security risk, unless you were with a television station, they have insurance and were allowed.

    Perhaps if you look up the city council regulations yuo may find the proper reference. I know that one of the camera clubs I belonged to in the 90's obtained a permit for a camera club shoot in the CBD back then.

    Mick.

    As a new comer to LF, all my learning has been web based. Would like to get together with other LF users in Melbourne, or out of Melbourne. So count me in.

    Yeah, I wouldn't mind a LF get together, best after Easter for me.
