For everyone who wants to learn and to share their talents.

Why Williamsburg? 1-they want our business as not too many people are vacationing, 2-Lovely history there, don't have to buy a ticket to be outside and walking around, great little town, lots of places to shoot, 3-several airports close, 4-Virginia Beach and Norfolk are about 2 hours away at the most for beach photography, 5-many places to eat and have classes.

No date set yet, but would be in the fall when leaves start turning.

No money is to be collected, but picking a committee as POTN activities, even if we don't use the forum name, should be done this way and with participation from everyone.

Last time it worked well as local POTN members made contact with stores, and checked out the hotels for meeting and housing, got freebies and models (not at the same time) :) and other stuff. We can discuss this as we get closer.

Classes were organized and not-organized, and meals were paid in advance and not paid in advance. It worked out great. People shared and we had lots to talk about and laughs. Sharing is the key and we bring all the equipment we need.

The nearest airport is probably Norfolk, Richmond, or Virginia Beach. I say 3 days, Thursday, Friday to Saturday, some leaving Saturday evening.

But as all things POTN, we need participation. If you are interested, would love input. I may move this thread to Activities forum later, but wanted to get it started here. Don't flame me.

Nearest airport would actually be Williamsburg/Newport News. Used to be Patrick Henry Field, hence the PHF airport designation if you're looking for flights. And Virginia Beach is only about an hour to an hour and a half away.

I'd definitely consider coming up for a day or so...

Thanks. I forgot about Williamsburg/Newport News. Would love to have you come. I think I will need your help to get freebies and some suggestions for meeting places.

I'm good for September, but not the last weekend. The wife and I will be in Martha's Vineyard for our last "just the two of us" trip before the baby arrives.

I would be VERY Interested, but the dates will make it or break it for me.

Opposite of ImagesByInku, the ONLY weekend in September that would work for me is the last weekend. The first weekend in October would be ok. BUT if you want peak fall foliage, you will need to shoot more for late October... See HERE (external link) for a Foliage Calendar.

I'm subscribed to the thread, It's only a 9 hour drive ($180 in Fuel round trip)... I could probably find someone to carpool with... Yes, I'd be very interested!
