Hi there and welcome!

As you're 'local' how about coming along to our next meeting:

Bristol U W Group

...it's this Tuesday and you'd be very welcome.

A good mix of experienced and newish photographers and lots of advice available!

If you'd like to come send me a message.

Welcome Wacky!

I'd recommend the Bristol UW Photog Group, too. I always enjoy my visits there - very friendly and welcoming lot. Talented bunch too.

I am speaking there at the March meeting - if you are there say 'Hi'.

:D

Indeed; two of our members were immediately behind Alex's second place in the Annual British Society of Underwater Photographers 2007 Annual Open Portfolio - and one or more of the Bristol group invariably appear in the other BSoUP annual competitions. We do have some exceptional talent - but also plenty of enthusiastic 'aspirers'!!!!

Looking forward as always to Alex's presentation on March 11th.

Was nice to meet you tonight if you ever take up UK diving give us a shout.

As a ttal coincidence i had already been to one BUPG evening and tonight was my second. Hadnt been here for a couple of days so was a bit confused when ralphy introduced himself as the guy from wetpixel. Now I am all caught up though.

I will be there in March Alex so i will make sure i say hi.

Good to meet you last night & I hope you enjoyed Alan James' presentation.

UK diving is on the agenda for this year, I'm re-locating to Devon (I'll almost be a neighbour of Peter Rowlands!) so no reason not to get into the sea there. :D

See you again in March.
