Because I have to be "that guy", I am making some new rules for our meet-ups. These take some time, effort and sometimes money on my part. All of which have been wasted lately.
First- For a meet-up to actually happen, I need at least 5 people confirmed. If we don't have at least 5 people, invite someone-wife, husband, friend, co-worker or class mate. Less than 5 confirmed people, I will call off the meet-up.
Second- Show up if you have confirmed. Not showing up after confirming is disrespectful and irresponsible. I know things happen, but please email, call, text or change your reservation. If you no show twice, I will ban you from the group.
Third- I will not even entertain the idea of re-doing a shoot because of failure to show up. Rain, wind, heat and bad light happen. Those challenges are to be learned from, not ran from. I will only reschedule a shoot if it was a total hit.
I would really like this to be a learning environment for all of us and for this to happen, there needs to be more participation. Lack of participation or interest shows that there is no need for a West County Photo Group, and the group will be canceled in September when the renewal fees are due.
I would like to thank those that have made such an effort to bring ideas, tips, questions and answers to the group. Keep the ideas flowing and the passion alive.
