I've been a part of this group for quite some time now, and although I don't share my work much (the work I do doesn't really fit the sharing mentality, as it is mostly project oriented work and not standalone images) I do chime in on discussions and questions when I feel it is useful.
My situation is interesting because I left the states about 3 years ago to teach ESL in South Korea, and left the states without any knowledge or much interest in photography, but found and fell deeply in love with it since moving to Seoul. My first two years was mostly dedicated to digital photography, but I'm happy to say that last year digital was enthusiastically substituted for film and I spent the whole year as a film shooter.
The reason for this post is that I left the states without knowing anyone that was into photography, let alone interested in film. Well, I'm making a rare visit back to the states this coming week and would love to meet up with a few photographers, film or digital, who are from my part of the world.
I live in the Dallas, TX area and although I'll be busy most of the week, I will be free this coming Monday and possibly for a bit towards the end of the week or next weekend. Even if it's just coffee or lunch or something, I'd just love to connect with some people who share this passionate art and make some physical connections with them beyond their profile pictures. I'd even be willing to travel a bit to meet up if I can manage it. It's weird not knowing many photographers back in the states, considering they are the bulk of my friendships in my life now.
If anyone is interested, please PM me or let me know in the comments.
