long time ago, I founded my first Travel
Photography Forum, a Yahoo
Club. This group currently has more than 3000 members but has become
a bit too quiet for my taste.
It's still a very good place to ask for practical advice, but ever
since Yahoo changed from the "Clubs" to the "Groups" format, the number
of contributions has dramatically decreased.
Of course, the group archives are a treasure trove of good advice!
Also, a few new active members might bring the old spirit back to life,
- maybe you'd like to participate?
Recently, I looked at Flickr, which
maybe is the web's biggest image pool.
Within a month of creating a Travel
Photography group there, more than
500 members had joined and thousands of photos posted to the group
This certainly is a very active place, although it does not have the
advanced e-mail facilities of a Yahoo group. Like at the old forum,
you can ask for travel and photo advice, post your photos for discussion
or tell us about your latest trip abroad.
I'm also trying out another format,
a fully-fledged phpBB
Travel Discussion Group, that has advanced ways of
editing your posts and is much more structured than the other pools. Currently,
you can't upload photos to that forum, but you can insert photos stored
somewhere else (e.g. on Flickr).
So, if you are interested in travel and photography, I'd be happy to see
you at one of the above groups!
It's a good way of meeting other photographers and exchanging tips and
