Meet up at The Photography Show in March.

Recommended Posts

Alamy has a stand (or booth for the American contingent) at The Photography Show at the Birmingham NEC in March. If anyone wants to meet up, post your intentions here and we can arrange something. I'd like to meet some Alamy heads to put a face behind the names. :D

I'm planning to go on the Monday. I usually book into the pro talks in the morning so would be around after 1pm. Up for a coffee meet up. Then I'll look around at things I don't need !

Cool - I'll be there Monday and Tuesday for the pro conference and Saturday at opening time for some pics.

I would love to be there but circumstances are preventing it. Sorry gents, and/or ladies as well.

Not sure which day I'll be going yet. Didn't realise that Alamy will be there - if they've been in previous years I must have missed them (must pay attention).

Understood. :( if I were there, it would be so for me.

For those who can attend on Monday, we'll say 1.15pm at the Alamy stand. For Saturday visitors where?

Probably Mexico City.

But might take day off & fly over & back.

Can someone set up trampoline.

Will use it to parachute in & jump back up later...

I usually go up to Birmingham for 1 or 2 days as well.  Will join if the times work out! Didn't know Alamy had a stand. Yay, will be nice to perhaps meet some of them f2f. We could do an alamy contributor flash mob.:D (ok, calm down, just kidding)

I’m planning to go on Monday. 1.15 seems a good idea for me too. Will try to remember!

Is that an official photocall? Can you give us an ETA and exact geodata for where in the NEC you'll be landing so we can get the cameras ready and the captions written?  :D

Change of plans.  Any nearby field.

Large personal collapsible uber drone, converts to bicycle.

Operated by me as hobbyist lifting me as "cargo" hanging underneath,

(not in seat) hoping it circumvents commercial license requirement, reduces overhead...

...or just carry on with MEX roam-around...

Hi Michael, 

 

I need and want to go, if only I get my sensors cleaned, but living in West Cork makes it all but impossible as it would involve an overnight stay. Shame.

I'll absolutely give you a shout next time I'm up there.  I need to go to shoot some stock.
