On a Chester Zoo meet last year I met Steve, Marcel, Matt, all Admin/Mod wallers, IanC_UK, and Cripple (Sam). Apart from that I haven't met anyone personally at all. We should try to put that right in the coming year, but you know, if we can't do it, it isn't that important. What's important is we continue to post our shots here. Sometimes they'll be great, sometimes they'll be not-so-great, and sometimes they might be crap, but keep posting those pics, that's what's really important.

I used to go out shooting with Steve, which was part of how this site came into being...

But then he upped sticks and moved to Germany....I think it was something I said...

Like CT says, we met up at Chester Zoo last year, and I've met up with IanC_UK, Matt, and a few others a couple of months ago at Donna Nook (organised through these forums). Occasionally go shooting with Jonny, but he has L glass so it's hard for me to resist the urge to mug him for it.

Personally I'm more of your social shooter, and prefer to go shooting with other photographers, which is why I like the meetup type events....good fun to chat with likeminded people.

I disagree.

I post on a couple of forums other than this one, and there was this guy who I absolutely and utterly hated, and he hated me. We would always disagree on forum discussions and every thread we were both in would end up locked.

Then one day we both ended up in the same room with a bunch of other people and we actually got along great. Shook hands, had a few pints, talked about all sorts.

Meeting people in person can really change your attitude towards them. In my experience, its always been for the better.

I have met Arkady via this forum as he lives in the same town as me (and he's a big pussycat really ). The only person I know personally is Rickmezza (Hi Rich ) as I'm very good mates with his wife and used to be one of their neighbours back up in Yorkshire.

I don't know anyone personally but this is the friendliest photography forum I have visited (not that I visit many) and the only one I post with regularly. Would love the opportunity to go on a shoot with someone who knows what they are doing....hoping Arkady makes it back from the jungle safely so he can keep his PROMISE of coming up north for a street shoot…..don’t see why all those southerners should be the only ones to benefit.

Yep, it's curious how we can form the totally wrong image and opinion of a person over The Internet. I've long been an advocate of using a personal pic as an avatar, which gets the message across that you're responding to the post of a living breathing person, not some bot programmed by Bill Gates, and avoids a lot of the personality clashes you get on some boards.

For some reason many people are loathe to post a personal pic, but I suppose they're not all as good looking as me. I'm not practising what I preach at the moment, so I'll have to give it some thought.

I'm worse than the lot of you, I went to a forum meet (Donna Nook) and didn't meet anybody!! lol

...I made the mistake of taking the girlfriend who, after a 3 and a half hour drive, didn't fancy walking another mile or two out to the sand banks where all the others were having fun

We've decided that next time we'll spend the night up there so we'll have a bit more energy on the day... it'll be sod's law that the weather will be crap though

As CT has already said met up with CT, Marcel, Matt, Steve and IanC, on the Chester Zoo outing, I also know Phase_K (He introduced me to these forums) although he has not posted in quite a while.

I think the days out are really good as you can go out and take photographs with people who share the same passion for it. If you can make one of them I highly recommend attending.
