Default Camel meetup #1

Someone has floated the idea of a PhotoCamel photography meetup. Who's interested, and any ideas as to location?

I'm up for Seattle. Don't live there, but I like it there. Maybe the wife will be busy that week, and I can show up all by myself

But if any outsiders come here, they'll want to STAY!

I can understand why people would think of the Northwest first though. After all, where else can you get the scenic pictures that you can get in Oregon. Shoot, even Washington has a few good spots to take pictures at.

So obviously Oregon would be a prime choice to meet.

California has a lot of great places to take pictures of too, but if dates work, I can fly up to OR or WA......

Well, yes, but it's NOT Oregon.



I like Idaho and want to get up to some of the great areas it has in the Northern part. But there is one thing to consider for those that might fly in. Flying into Portland or Seattle will probably be cheaper than just about anywhere else in the Northwest... not to mention both places have direct flights from most areas of the country. So keeping it near a major airport city might be a good idea. Or any part of the country one is held, keeping in mind the best places to fly into and ease of driving too should be kept in mind.

I took one trip to the northwest, and it was beautiful. I particularly remember being impressed and surprised by Idaho's beauty. I was thinking potatoes before I got there.

But what are some good shooting locations there? How about heading to yellowstone? Rain forests?

There's a possibility we will be doing a west coast fly-drive in early summer which will cover places like Yellowstone and/or Yosemite and the other landmarks along that route. Nothing confirmed yet though. If it coincides with a meet then that would be cool.
