Hello all. I'm looking for someone to shoot with. My family is supportive of my photography, but when I ask who would like to come with me when I go all I get are groans and "ah do I have to?" So I'm appealing to the masses for a shooting buddy. This would occur as often (or as little) as possible according to the time that both parties have. I'm open to any type of shooting and will enjoy new challenges. I have tried to reach out to a few people here by PM when I notice if they are close enough to shoot with. Alas I have only had one reply (thank you Coley) and I think that I've made at least 20 inquires, people must think I'm a stalker:(

I live in Orillia Ontario Canada and will travel within an hour and a half in any direction in an effort to meet up with someone. I do travel to Toronto a lot, as among other things I'm also a professional actor and that's where the work is:)

This is not limited to just one person in any particular area, I would love to meet as many people on this site as I possible can. I know that people come to Toronto from all over this great planet of ours and if someone on this site is heading to Toronto in the near future and would like to meet up I'd be open to that as well:)

I'm meeting up with Coley in mid August for some shooting so my calendar is open at the moment.

Hope to hear from someone soon.

All the best to everyone.

MAX!

August is a long way off and I'd love some interaction with others as well.

Hi Max

My outlaws live in Midland and my wife and I usually go up early/mid fall to visit before that leave for the winter. I'm from Hamilton and donít mind some driving to take some pics. Most of my summer is booked for work though. But I will keep you in mind and maybe we can get some pics in. Do you golf?

You might see if there is a MeetUp group near you. Check on //www.meetup.com and you can put in your interest and see if there's a group around you. There's a pretty active group here around Cincinnati.

Scott, great to hear from you. I have loads of family in Hamilton and surrounding area on my wife's side and we visit there often. In fact we were just in that area two weeks ago, and are heading your way again soon I think. Grandma is turning 1000 soon so I think we'll attend. Could make a weekend of it. I'll let you know.

Thank you for the reply. All the best to you and yours.

Where in Hamilton do you live? Grandma is on the mountain.

To be honest Ray she's anywhere between 96 and 1000 years old, nobody knows for sure as she is a real lady and they never tell their age.

She still lives alone and does everything for herself but drive (thank God for small mercies.

Hey Max

I get the same reaction with my family. I know how you feel. I would like to hook up nad shoot with you. Hopefully my schedule would allow some time to do that. I live in Barrie so I am very close. Let make it happen. Any suggestions as to where and when.

Leo that's fantastic. I would love that. I own my own company so getting away is not an issue for me unless were into something that's new for my guys, but as for now were in jobs that then know.

Since your so close we could day trip just about anywhere at any time.

I'll PM you my contact information and we'll talk that's a much better way for me than typing.

All the best to you and yours.

I'm planing a visit to Calgary but not in the near future, unless I fall into gobs of cash:)

But thank you for the offer and when I head out that way I'll post far enough in advance that all the people who like to get out and shoot can get in touch with me:)
