Eastgate Photo Shoot

  • February 13, 2013 · 7:30 PM

An evening out in the Eastgate Shopping Centre photographing the mall after hours.

It has been arranged for a group of 20 to be taken on a tour of the shopping centre with the ability to take photos. It is a rare opportunity to photograph a well known location when it is deserted and in lower light conditions. A tripod is highly recommended.

This is a charity trip and donations are required by each member who attends. A minimum of £2, but I am hoping to raise as close to £100 as possible, which equates at an average of £5 per member. All dontations will be given to St. Luke's Hospice, which I hope you'll agree is a worthy and deserving cause.

Please note that this trip is only open to members who have attended one of our previous meetings and spaces are strictly limited. Anyone who has expressed an interest in going on the discussion thread and personally has been automatically RSVPed (cos they're keen and want to go!) Replies are on a first come first served basis. If there are 20 people already RSVPed, please don't RSVP as it will be cancelled.

One proviso from the management of the centre: Any photographs taken within the centre must be approved by their management before commercial use.

Please ensure that you arrive in plenty of time as admission after 7.30pm cannot be guaranteed. The assembly point will be confirmed nearer the date and will be confirmed by email.

    Absolutely fantastic night. Really was a privelige to get to wander around a deserted shopping centre, snapping away!

    Thanks for all who attended. I will be making a trip to St. Luke's tomorrow to hand over the envelope and get a final total for the donation. Looks like we've got a winner!

    very enjoyable, made a nice change, big thanks to Owen for organising, even if he couldn't keep us organised! ;-)

    Owen, Gezz won't be able to make it now, so if you have a waiting list?

    February 11, 2013

    • Owen M.

      That brings us down to the 'official' 20, so I'll leave it be. Thanks for letting me know, Steph.

    Reet-o! The final arrangements have been made and I can confirm that we will be meeting in the Asda car park by the travelator and leaving there at 7.30pm. If you're late, you won't get in! An email has been sent to all attendees and a map and directions has been put in the file section.

    The main reason for the Asda meeting is that the car park is free and it's not that difficult to walk round to the entrance that we have been instructed to use.

    Dear Owen, please let me know if anyone drops out as I would like to come along if possible. Many thanks Sandra

      It looks unlikely I'm afraid, Sandra, but I'll bear it in mind. If everything goes to plan and we raise enough cash for St. Luke's, I'll be angling for another visit later in the year around November.

      I've also got a couple of things lined up (in principal but not yet confirmed) for May and June. Special places with our own unique access. More to follow soon!

    The final attendees have been added. It makes a total of 21 but I think I can get away with it! Check the list on the right to see if you've been confirmed (you should also get an email)

    Edit: If you wish to apply for the last four places on this trip, please reply in the following discussion post:

    It will help me better respond to the RSVPs. We have a good selection of members with varying degrees of experience attending.

    If anybody already RSVPed in for yes cannot make the evening, please use the same discussion thread to let me know as soon as possible so that I can reallocate their spot
