This is a very exciting week for me! Not only have I finally launched my website and blog to showcase the fruits of my favorite hobby, but I will also have the chance to meet up with others in the Brussels region who are as into photography as I am (if not more so).
First is a meeting of the Viewfinders Club, an English-speaking photography club that meets near Merode. I only learned of this club as their season was ending (and my house was full of guests) so I am very much looking forward to meeting with the other members, learning new skills and tricks of the trade, as well as new places to photograph.
On Thursday, I will be at the Tri-Mission Info Fair where I will be manning a booth for the Tri-Mission Photography Club (perhaps the first order of business should be to adopt a new name!). Why two clubs? Well, some in our community may not be ready for a full on commitment to the already established, local club. There are some who are shy about their photography skills and a post community specific club may be just what they need to jumpstart their hobby and get them out and about. If nothing else, it’s a great way to see this fabulous place we are posted to while meeting others who are in the same boat career-wise.
Of course I will also be displaying some of my prints at the Info Fair as well! I won’t be able to sell there, but at least I’ll get some exposure for my work.
For those of you in the Tri-Mission and US mil community, I hope to see you all there. Don’t forget to stop by and sign up for the club!
