Introduction

I'm an ad agency exec and photography enthusiast. Started the Flickrites in 2005 - we had 2 people show up to the first meetup! Within months, we swelled to 1800 people and multiple meetups per month. Very very proud of this group!

What do you hope to gain from this group?

What I've gained from the group is the satisfaction that we've had countless events, lots of learning, and at least three marriages come out of our efforts. I'm no longer involved in the group but very very proud to see it continue to grow!

What is your Flickr name and url? What got you started?

Hearing about it from a lot of people I respect...all positive. 'Flickr is CRACK,' they told me. They were right!

What are your favorite photography subjects?

Macros, portraits, landscapes.

What do you love most about Flickr? Hate the most?

LOVE: the community! Flickr peeps generally have an awesome, friendly vibe. HATE: the fact that Yahoo has relaxed its standards and how much porn and how many pervs have gravitated to Flickr. :(

Do you shoot primarily film or digital?

Digital but getting back into film with some older cameras from the 1950s.

What Eric Weaver is saying about this Meetup Group

I am continually honored to be a part of this group of positive, fun and funny people. Our group keeps growing in size and closeness, and I am proud in the extreme.

    Thank you so much for creating such a great group. Did you ever think that it would end up this great? I am so glad that I listen to KOMO. What better way to discover Seattle and surrounding areas than to do it as a group? Looking forward to many more Flickr Meetups. Thanks...Jenni
