Group DescriptionThis is the group to discuss upcoming and past meetups of the Birmingham Flickrmeets Group.
Regular Flickrmeets take place on the second Sunday of each month and usually involve a walk around town. Flickrmeets are open to all!
Flickrmeets are all inclusive: film, digital, SLR, compact, toycamera, TTV, vintage... whatever you shoot you'll be more than welcome.
Meetings generally start at 2pm in the summer and noon in the winter, but times may vary, so please look for the discussion thread to confirm the correct time and meeting place.
Around these meets members are encouraged to organise their own, often based on a theme or around an event but really anything goes. Keep an eye on the discussions to see what's coming up and if you have an idea start a new thread.
The Black Country Flickrmeets group also runs meets and there's a significant overlap in members.
We very much hope you will post your shots from the meets to the pool, but please tag them with the appropriate tag for that meet. Photos not taken on Flickrmeets in Birmingham (UK) will be removed from the pool.
We started in May 2006. A list of all our past flickrmeets can be found in this thread

Group RulesMembership and meetings:
Membership is open to everyone. You don't have to turn up to meetings to be part of this group , but we very much hope you will.
We have had very lively, friendly and enjoyable meetings in the past and do not want to spoil this success. Inappropriate behaviour at meetings or inappropriate use of photographs taken at meetings will not be tolerated. If anyone experiences such behaviour they should open a thread or email/flickrmail at least two active admins.
Note that meetings are held in public places and it is normal for members to photograph each other as part of the activities for the day. Whilst it is impossible to prevent occasional photographs being taken of any individual member, the number of these should be reasonable. If you have requests on the use of photographs of yourself, you should bring them to the attention of the individual(s) concerned (who will respect your views) or one or more of the admins.
The group pool:
Photos posted to the Birmingham Flickrmeets pool MUST be taken at one of our Flickrmeets, and tagged appropriately. (See the discussion for lists of meets and the tags to use.). Photos not taken at a flickrmeet, will be removed. Repeat offenders may be banned from the group.
