Profile photos

Hey SBP,

This is your friendly assistant-organiser here to remind you that you should try to upload a profile photo. Now, I know that for most photographers, having pictures taken of themselves is something akin to dropping that fabulous lens you just saved up to buy, or having someone steal your camera bag out of your car, but it sure helps us get to know each other if you post some kind of likeness of yourself in your Meetup profile.

I've met a fair share of you and none of you look like monsters (so far), and I'm sure that once in a while you've gotten your camera out and taken a Myspace-style self-portrait, so I know they're lying around! If you haven't done that, you could always offer to model for the group and get a nice number of good photos that way (thanks Sridhar for my current profile photo!).

Deciding to not have a profile photo isn't the end of the world, and of course you would never be kicked out of this group, but it's really nice and helpful if you do have one. It definitely helps with figuring out who you are at events.

Just a suggestion from your friendly neighbourhood assistant organiser.

Keep shooting,
