Hi, I'm new to the Bay Area and interested in photography and Urban Exploration. Found your meetup group through a google search, and would love to join!
Are you willing to be part of a group where we watch out for each other? Some people are tempted to go off on their own during a meetup. This is not acceptable because in the past we've wasted time searching for people. Photo of yourself required.
Perfectly willing to stay with the group at all times.
Can you remain calm in a dark abandoned building? Are you fit enough to run with the group and walk along uneven surfaces if the terrain requires it? If not, you shouldn't join this group.
Are people afraid of ghosts? :) I think I can handle a dark abandoned building.
A meetup consist of a field shoot and Show & Tell where we relax at an eatery to show a few of our recent photos. It is a chance to learn from each others efforts - hits and near misses - and get in the practice of talking "photography". Comment?
Meeting new people is a major reason I got into photography. Sounds great.
