    Last night was a lot of fun, and I wanted to give a big thanks to everyone who came out to talk shop and enjoy some great food with new friends!

    I really enjoyed hearing the feedback, especially the enthusiasm you all showed when talking about photography and sharing your Sony stories. Some great conversations were had, some delicious food was consumed, and some awesome ideas were put on the table. This is gonna be a fun year for us Sony shooters! ;)

    Stay tuned to this group, and I hope to meet more of you at our next MeetUp!

    George Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary is always a good spot to test the new[masked] GII and 500mm prime.

    Isn't June 16th Father's Day?

    June 6, 2013

    • Courtney H.

      To make it easier for the rest of the dad's we moved this to June 17th instead... I hope you can join us, and your son is more than welcome to join us as well!

    • Adam D.

      I confused this with the zoo trip. Sorry!

      June 12, 2013

  • Adam D.

    Sorry. I can't fight rush hour traffic out of Vancouver. I was planning on bringing my son and he has school the next day. We would get back too late. I'm looking forward to the next one though!

    How does everyone feel about getting together to talk photography & enjoy some delicious food at the same time?

    I suggest we meet at Kaya Malay Bistro, as they have amazing food and private meeting area we can use. Bring $15-20 with you for some snacks during our chat!

    1063 W. Broadway
    Vancouver, British Columbia V6H 1E2
    Canada[masked]

    By all means, please share other suggestions as the location is not yet set.

    June 10, 2013

    • Rob

      Yes, I'll be coming in from South Surrey and I will need parking as well!

      June 10, 2013

    • Webb Y.

      I am OK with this location.

      June 10, 2013

  • Webb Y.

    Sorry I just saw your Photo Day at the Zoo and signed up for it. So my previous post is irrelevant now. For general discussion about photography, equipment, etc., we can go for a nice fish & chips at Steveston village, or Starbucks coffee anywhere convient to most people.

    1 · June 6, 2013

    • Courtney H.

      Hey buddy great to see you here! Steveston may be a bit far for some but we can see what others may want to do. I have suggested Kaya Malay Bistro on West Broadway in Vancouver but we can always come up with another venue... fish and chips is tempting though...

      June 10, 2013

  • Confusion C.

    Unfortunately, I will be photographing The Palouse, Washington that weekend.

    1 · June 6, 2013

    • Courtney H.

      Sorry to hear you can't join us, but you make me want to setup a landscape outing... have fun and I would love to see some of the shots you come back with!

      June 10, 2013

  • Amit G.

    Yeah..on Fathers day I better stick around at home! I will try to meet you guys on the next meet up .

    June 7, 2013

    • Courtney H.

      Rescheduled t June 17th, I hope you can join us!

      June 10, 2013

  • Courtney H.

    Thanks for the heads up everyone, somehow I didn't realize it was Father's day when I scheduled it. My bad! How does everyone feel about a weekday evening meet up instead? say maybe Monday June 17 or Tuesday June 18. Location wasn't set yet because I knew that people would be coming from different areas of the GVRD. Ideally something along a skytrain line would be a good idea for those of us that are taking transit.

    We can nail down details within a few days of the event is that is cool with everyone. In the future we can certainly host our meetups indifferent regions.

    Suggestions? please share!

      Weekends are best of course, but evenings work as well for me!

      June 7, 2013

    • Courtney H.

      Looking at Monday June 17 in the evening, hope that can work for you gentlemen, we would love to have you join us!

    I might have to cancel if my kids come to town for father's day.

    I'm in Nanaimo, so if there are going to be any shoots here on the island, I will probably be able to make them. Cheers...

      Hi Brooks, thanks for joining... it is great to see some representation from up-island! We will certainly be looking to get a few events going in your area, likely looking to late July/Early Aug for the first round. Keep watching this group!

    Do I to have Sony Alpha, NEX, or RX1/100 Cyber-shot to come?
    I have a Canon EOS Rebel XT. Do I come or not> Do I Bring my Camera?

    June 10, 2013

    • Courtney H.

      Hi Roberta, thanks for joining the group and for your interest in our upcoming meet up. The first meet up will focus specifically on Sony cameras and a great chance to talk to those users who shoot with them. All of our events will center around Sony cameras technology, but will also include general photography topics from time to time. You are welcome to bring your camera but we will not be discussing Canon related functions or the like at this event. I hope that helps!
