I've been active with Meetup Groups for several years. Currently organizer of Philly Video Pros. I work as a freelance news photographer.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you describe your photographic skill level?

8-10 I've TAUGHT photography. I've written reviews of photo gear, software, books and workshops, and occasionally do presentations to groups of photographers.

What kind of activities would you like to see this group organize in the future?

I can't provide an answer to the question as it's worded other than to say, let's emulate the NY Photo League, which, frankly I never knew existed.

Were you referred to this site by an existing member of this group?

No. I got a notice from Meetup HQ that this group had formed.

Are you passionate about your art, and are you committed to utilizing your talents in order to facilitate improvements to the living conditions of those less fortunate?

Very much so. I'm doing it already. My friends think I'm Don Quixote.

Would you be willing to volunteer your time as a member of our Leadership Team in order to advance the cause of this organization?

If I HAVE time, yes.

    Philadelphia Photo League

    Hello Bill. I loved the meetups I had before with you and Joe then it got dissolved. ever since then I've been looking for one but no luck. I just applied to join for Philadelphia Photo League but not sure what it is all about. Group sounded like more of an charity than photo group. anyway, whether you remember me or not, please let me know any photo walks or photo meetups you do so I can come out and join you. thanks, -eric

    Bill, Thanks for being so welcoming! I think I'm really going to enjoy the association with this group! By the way, I write a blog called "Tales of Relentless Pursuit." I post a story each week--mostly by fellow photogs, but my own stories too. It started as funny true stories,but we've also had poignant tales and even fiction!" And of course there are always pics. The link: http://talesofrelentlesspursuit.blogs...­­
    I'm ALWAYS looking for new authors and new stories. (hint)

    Hi Bill,
    Is anyone else having trouble uploading their photos?I've been trying all afternoon and can't upload mine.(I've tried the new uploader and the old version.The new one doesn't work at all and on the old version the photos start to upload and then when it says" done" they don't show up (no matter how long I wait).This is the first time I've tried uploading anything to the new group and never had any problems previously. Can you help? (They are in JPG format and are less than 10 mb)
