Hope no one minds me posting this here, if so feel free to delete the topic, if it's missing I'll know why :)
So, the reason for this posting is to let anyone in the group that happens to be in Bend, Redmond, La Pine, Sisters, and other nearby areas (closer that PDX anyway) that I'm trying to organize a more local group.
Not to take away from this group of course, and I think joint meet-ups would be a blast, but for the average saturday or sunday it's a bit much to travel to Portland for the afternoon.
The group I started is not strictly strobist related, however since there is not yet a strobist group in Bend I figure we can handle that too. The main point of the group is to simply get together and learn from each other, network with friends, have a good time, silly stuff like that.
The group is Bend Oregon Photographers (I know, real original name)
If you live in the Bend area please feel free to join in and help get stuff started. Seems I managed to recruit 6 members besides myself, and I know 2 of them personally so I'm hoping we're off to a good start.
I live in Bend and have only been in Oregon for 2 years now and have finally found some spare time to get out and actually enjoy the area.
Thanks for your time and hope to see some new faces :)
