Photography mixer

Since this is a new group, it would be nice to get together to have a few drinks and snackies and get to know each other. Find out what your favorite photography subjects are, where you feel your skills are strongest/weakest, and show off some of our favorite photos. They don't have to be from Winnipeg or Manitoba...one of my favorites is posted below. So, gather 10-15 of your favorite photos, stick them in your "brag book" (or iPad or scrapbook or whatever) and get ready to show off your photography prowess!

I'd also like to get together to see what everyone hopes to get out of the group. I have MANY ideas, like day trips to places, or even weekend trips to farther away places...but I'd like to gauge everyone else's thoughts and interests.

I'll hold of setting the location until I find out how many people are available to come, which will dictate where we're able to go (hopefully we'll have a lot of people interested, and we'll need a place that holds a lot of people).

If you know someone that you think would love to join the group, please let them know about us! The more the merrier!

I took this up in Hecla last spring...sometimes you take a picture and then you are completely surprised by the outcome. This was one of those photos for me!

    The mixer was a great idea. Thanks Holly. It was interesting and inspiring seeing all the different photos. (I'm so glad most everyone has his/her photo posted here--eventually I might remember some names!!)

    A great evening - I enjoyed meeting the many who there tonight and seeing so many excellent photos; I think many of you have quite a talent for this. So many beautifully artful and creative ideas and shots. Thanks for booking the King's Head, Holly - a great idea. Until next time....

    Anyone seeing this before you get here...we are UPSTAIRS at the Kings Head on the benches under the window!

    FYI another Meet Up group is booked at the same time there as we are (one which I am also a member of) - Winnipeg Foodies. I can attend two events at once!

    Hi everyone going to the mixer. I'm going to the King's Head shortly after 6 on Friday so that the chef can make me dinner. If anyone else is interested in joining me--come on down!! The food is pretty reasonable, price and taste...
    Sonja, I'm using a tablet to show my photos.

    March 13, 2013

    • Ivor L.

      That's an idea, Elaine, and I may join you for some grub, unless the idea is that we order when we all meet at 7. What's the plan, Holly? We wouldn't want to get HP sauce on our nice photos.

      March 13, 2013

    • Holly T.

      It doesn't matter to me...this is pretty informal...eat if you want when you want, drink if you want when you want. Being camera if you want...all I care about is getting to know everyone...and everyone's $2 meetup fee. LMFAO

      March 14, 2013

  • Holly T.

    Hey folks! Looking forward to seeing you all on Friday! And looking forward to seeing everyone's favorite photos! I have made a reservation at The King's Head under my name, so when you get there just ask for our table and you'll be good to go!

    Something's come up--not nearly as fun and exciting--so I'm bowing out ;-( I hope to attend a future mixer and meet fellow shutterbugs! ;-)

    The King's Head is always good. If you call ahead you can reserve an entire section as they have 4 kind of separate areas

    February 24, 2013

    • Adam C.

      There is a covered, lit parkade right beside the Kings Head. There is also sometimes a security guard in there. If that is full, there is another lot on the other side of Market Stage in front of Smokes Poutinerie. You can also park on the street right in front of the King's Head, as well as most of the exchange district. If you avoid walking through alleys or going too far west (I'd stay east of Hargrave if you're nervous about it), everything is pretty well lit and there's always people around.

    I won't be able to commit until probably the Wednesday before hand. My schedule changes so much right now that saying yes wouldn't be far if I have to bail last minutes.

    February 24, 2013

    • Holly T.

      That's no problem, Stacey...The King's Head doesn't need to know how many people are coming until just a few days before anyway. If you can make it, we'd love to have you come. If not, there's always the next event!

    Another thing to keep in mind is that many places with video will be having the game live. I'm not sure how much of an impact this would have for choosing a location but I thought I would mention it.

    February 24, 2013

    • Holly T.

      I understand. I am also planning on making a reservation sooner rather than later which will ensure us a place that will fit everyone. Most places show the game, so it's something we're just going to have to deal with.

      February 24, 2013

  • Holly T.

    That's a great point....I must have looked at it wrong...I could have SWORN it was an away game. Okay...back to the drawing board. Unless anyone has a suggestion? Someplace big enough for a large group, and convenient for everyone from every parts of the city...

    February 24, 2013

  • Mark L.

    Further to Sonja's concern regarding parking for the Photography Mixer, there is a Jet's game at the MTS Centre that evening. I don't know how challenging parking will be.
