Hello again. We are looking to add people willing to contribute as event coordinators in the various hub cities around the Netherlands. Our members are scattered across the country, but mostly concentrated near major cities, Amsterdam, Den Haag, Rotterdam, Utrecht, etc.
It would be nice if a couple people near each major city could volunteer as Event Organizers in their area. This will help bring Meetups as close to everyone as possible, and also provide several options for events to keep people snapping shots. Also, if we have a few people in each area planning events it is less likely to become a burden or too time consuming to bear. Even if you just want to organize a photo-walk around your city from time to time, we could use your help and participation.
You don't have to commit too much time, even if you only have one or two ideas for an event. Also, you can always contribute ideas for Meetups and Photo-Challenges if you feel you are unable or unwilling to put the time in to organizing events.
Please reply here, or contact me or Karno directly if you are interested in helping out.
Hope to hear from you soon!
P.S. Those I "drafted" already as Event Organizers already are welcome to continue in those roles but please do not feel obligated to continue.
This is a group for anyone who likes taking pictures and wants to learn more and enjoy the company of others with the same interest. All skill levels and equipment are welcome; point-and-shoots, lomo, DSLR, film - anything that gets you excited about working with photography.
Equipment doesn't matter
Failure is good.
Photos are neither good nor bad, they just are.
Everyone can be a teacher and student at the same time.
Satisfaction comes from starting and finishing projects.
Please feel free to suggest Meetups. If you have any questions, please message the organizer or anyone on the Leadership team.
Ask questions. Answer questions.
Find someone (or something) who inspires you.
Take lots of photos.
Finish what you start.
Meet with other people and talk about your best photos.
The forums are available for friendly group discussions and this Meetup group is organizing Meetups across the Netherlands in order to bring people together everywhere there is an opportunity to learn and have some fun.
If you live in the Netherlands and want to participate, if you are just planning to visit and want to meet with people who know the area. Come on in and enjoy.
