TT Berlin Photography club photo meet up

lol, no guaranteed sales though, just a customer wish list.

This is a useful link for agencies http://www.cepic.org/english/index.php, use the 'Look for Picture Agency' search for whatever you specialise in, but also do some further checking up on how good they are at making sales

Thanks for that link! I had no idea where to begin other than emailing random agencies and waiting for the reply which so far has been 'we are not accepting new photographers at the moment.' I'll give it a try...

Ahh - I love flea markets - let me know if you want company. I don't like shopping, but ADORE the flea markets - because you get a wide range of crap, crap and more crap!!

if its not too late (I'm not good with mornings either) we're heading off to Mauer Park in a short while, probably there about 12:00ish - you can always call my handy if you're around.

 

Otherwise, what about next weekend, who's around? Weather forecast is looking up, ok its usually wrong, but lets be optimistic, how about planning a trip out? I'd vote for either coast or Quedlinburg.

 

Dunkin' - I'll pm you some stuff later on agencies when I get time.

I am planning on going to Mauerpark this afternoon as well (prob about 2pm depending on the weather). I have never been there, and will be bringing my camera. I would also like to catch the karaoke there. I will give you a call when I am there.

 

By the way, I am meeting a friend at 12.30pm for Dim Sum at a restaurant near Savigny Platz. If you would like to join, contact me.

I'd say the weekend of the 7-9th of August is the one to go to the coast- perhaps Rostock since the ships come into harbor in the afternoon.

The reason is because that's the weekend of the Hansesail.

For this weekend, (1st and 2nd August) I'd suggest Quedlinburg if you want to go somewhere. :)

that sounds a good plan to me Rose - so anyone up for Quedlinburg this weekend? Saturday is looking the best day at the mo but probably best checking that nearer the time. I think about 3 hours by train from Berlin.

Quedlinburg looks great, but I'm in Prague again this weekend. I noticed Q'burg has the UNESCO designation on the website. I recommend all UNESCO sites as future photo trips (start Googling). Over the years I managed to hit most of the ones in Czech. UNESCO sites tend to be well preserved or restored architectural / cultural gems. It's a good way to weed out the more boring towns. Anyway, I'll be back into the trips again soon, dontcha worry.

 

I too am also interested in the Mauerpark karaoke on Sundays and I'm waiting for a Sunday that I'm not out of town or it's dumping rain. I would like to photograph the event AND get my Elvis freak on. I also recommend that Lolo attend and give us his rendition of 'Fairytale of New York.'

 

And yes, Callie, please do pm me about agencies!

Pig, look forward to meeting you at a future event!

 

Dunkin' if you're doing your Elvis impression I will definately be there, as much as I hate the flea markets - managed to get around both Mauer Park and Ostbahnhof in under an hour on Sunday! Quedlinburgs UNESCO status is my main reason for wanting to visit, I like to hit all UNESCO sites - have been planning on doing the Modernist housing estates around Berlin at some time too, if anyone else has any interest http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/1239

Will pm you asap.

Lolo's version of "Fairy tale of New York" has the use of Scumbag and Fagot in it about dozen extra times. I would be very interested in Quedlinburg.

I'm interested for sure - and since I've been before, I may not take half as many photos (ya right) as I did last time. I'd prefer Sunday, but could maybe work it out with saturday depending on time (I need to go to the post office for a package that's been there all week).

I am planning on attending this event in Rostock. I have a car and willing to drive. It appears to be about a three hour drive so I might spend the night. I would like some sunset/sunrise shots. I have no idea if hotels will be reasonable, etc.

Don't really mind which day we go, but at the moment the weather forecast for Quedlinburg on sunday is not so good, so would prefer the sunny saturday - but that could change yet, so lets check on it again tomorrow.

Train options - there is one leaving Berlin Friedrichstr at 9:07 (departs Wannsee at 9:30 if thats easier for you Rose) arriving at 12:23

The return either 17:33 or 19:33 look the best options.

All trains need a change at Magdeburg - there is a direct service, one a day, but it leaves Berlin in the morning at something like 7:15, so not so good.

Hi all,

Ok so I'd say plan for Saturday then - if I can make it to the post office tomorrow night, then I'll let you know. (post office here doesn't open until 9am and it'd be pushing it to make it to wansee by 9:30) If I didn't make it tomorrow night, then I'd rather get the package than have it sent back to the US, unfortunately, and since I've been to Quedlinburg - it's not a "have to" see.

ok so forecast is still looking best for saturday so I'd say go for that - hope you can make it Rose, unfortunately the trains don't go so frequently so we can't really get a later one.

 

So:

Callie

Serennissima

Lolo

Jade

Rose???

 

This is the train we need to catch:

Kinda doubt I'll be going tomorrow, as much as I want to - work's going badly today - super busy. No way to leave early to make it to Post...

thats a shame Rose. Well, if there is anywhere you recommend we see, let us know. I've printed off stuff from the UNESCO website and a stadtplan.

I'd have to say walk around the entire outside of the monestery. Also, if you go into the churches (some may be open) climb up to the pipe organs - and look closely. All along the walkways and on the organs themselves are signatures and dates of the years the people played them. Otherwise, there's lots of hidden "nooks" and crannys that look like alleys but open into crazy little coves.

That's too bad. We had a great day photographing lots (and lots!) of mediaeval and renaissance half-timbered buildings, and there were surprisingly not too many tourists about for a lovely sunny Saturday in August. Recommended for anyone who wants to get a flavour of what a German town was like in the Middle Ages. Quedlingburg even has hills, and there is a lovely view of the town from the cafe terrace on Münzenberg - especially with a glass of Schwarzbier in one hand and a camera in the other!

Many thanks to Callie for organising the trip and working out the logistics of the train connections!
