There is a site, called meetup dot com or something, with a lomography group on it, getting virtually no traction. I’m wondering if enough local lomographers in Auckland would be interested in getting together. As we are a small community we could find strength in numbers.
We could do what meetups do and find cool places to go, but we can also enable ourselves to do more. We could swap film, I don’t mean in the traditional sense, I mean expired film we’ve acquired, to get more variation in our collections. We could pitch in to bulk buy from ebay.com lowering the cost of importing film and getting it cheaper than we otherwise can. We can stop bidding against each other on trade me and help each other, share large batches etc.
If you are interested, comment here. I’m not sure how the group currently on meetup will go, but we can at least watch it or sort something out.
With anticipation of putting some faces to names, Adam signing off!
JUST ADDED! I’M STARTING TO GET REQUESTS FOR THE FACEBOOK GROUP, PLEASE PRIVATE MESSAGE ME THE NAMES YOU’LL BE REQUESTING UNDER OR OTHERS NAMES YOU’VE SENT THERE SO I CAN INITIALLY SCREEN NEW MEMBERS.
