I proposed this earlier, and seeing how nobody really made aynthing out of it, lets try again? How would be interested in say a weekend throughout southern Alberta shooting and what not? Sheldon proposed spring would be best...any oppinions?

My Ideas:

Friday: Meet in Calgary, arrange P/U's, hotels etc..shoot downtown in afternoon and then dinner, than some night life (could be interesting on a hockey night)

Saturday: Southern alberta (Lethbridge etc.. - Sheldon's territory)

Sunday: Banff and Rockies

Any oppinions on if this is too much? I'm open :D

Hmm......could just be me, but that seems like a lot of traveling in just one week end. Although a southern Alberta POTN meet would be nice to see at some point. Lots to see no matter where you go........Medicine Hat area, Cypress Hills area, Roucky Mountain area, etc.

And waiting until at least spring is most preferable in my mind if I were to participate.

As mentioned on other threads, I would be interested. I think one full day or even one overnight would be enough. I have no preference to time or location. If there is a time someone would like to commit to, just let me know and I will see what is on the agenda. Being my own boss, I can get time away from work most often but there are a few critical times on some projects that might be a bit tough, plus I have lots of time booked for ski trips, canoeing and hiking up to next fall already.

Just noticed the other thread shortly after I wrote in this one. So I'll watch both I guess.

Seeing as it seemed the last one got lost (or atleast I thought it did) lets make this the planning thread - who's got ideas?

I'm pretty available if I have due enough notice, although during the week I'm at school and March 4-9 i'll be on a 72' schooner out west - any other time works for me :)

Well, even being a newby to photography I'd really like something like this. I'm in Calgary. Banff would be amazing too. Personally I have to avoid March if possible due to a night class. (Tuesday nights, and all day Saturday. My finals are in March)

But yeah, I think it's an excellent idea. Might even give me a good chance to meet with more experienced photographers and learn tons of stuff you just never read about in books!

A full day trip would be great, maybe an overnighter. I would be game for anything and other than a few set events with a bit of warning I could make myself available almost anytime. I think the first thing would be to set a date, the location(s) could be figured out after that.

Right now I have nothing in April or the first half of May. I could swing something during the week easily too.

We will be doing a weekend ski trip near the end of March, date not set yet. It is dependant on a couple other families.

Let's see what others think.

Hi All, small intro is due: retired for one year now (I’m sure you guys wouldn’t like it :rolleyes: ). Always had a camera of sorts and then purchased the Canon T70 just after they became available but really began playing/learning digital in the last four years, started with a very small Olympus (great snap shot camera) then improved to the Sony 828 (exceptional but for the fringing problem) and shortly after retirement my good wife gifted me with a 30D to which I’ve added some pieces of glass; Canon EF-S 17-85 IS, EF 70-300 DO IS USM and a couple of Sigma lens, EX 105 DG Macro and a 50-500 APO DG HSM not mentioned some other various and sundry photographic accouterments. That’s the glass but wish I could use some of my old T70 glass, that old 50 always took a good photo. Averaging a little over ten thousand photos per year now and always happy to find a new opportunity to pick up the camera to which my family has responded by calling me Papa – “ratzzi.” Nothing is sacred. Hence this first post in this forum of POTN. I would enjoy going to Calgary for the photo opportunities and to meet fellow POTN’ers also the Bow River or any river with trout is a big draw for me. In addition to the camera I’m addicted to fly fishing. My preference is for a warmer weather time frame for any “Clave” in the Calgary area I’m fairly sure my calendar will have an opening set aside.

Man the photographer captures a moment of light in God’s creation and then believes he has embellished it.
