I'm very keen to experiment with Strobist style lighting specifically for model photography but I can't find a suitable Strobist group in my area.  There are a couple of  Strobist groups locally but they don't seem very active and to be blunt their meets appear to be rather dull and unattractive.  They're also not specifically aimed at model photography. I think I've tracked all the other local groups so please don't use this thread to recommend any of them.  The idea is to start a new group.

So I'm keen to meet up with a few other keen Strobists and budding Strobists to mutually share ideas and discuss the possibility of getting some meets together.

Reply here if you're keen to establish a group.

Models are very welcome to show interest as we'll definitely need your skills to make this work.

I am near to Shrewsbury so Birmingham is easy by train for me. I would be very interested in getting involved with this proposed group

I've long been a Strobist, and like you, haven't really found many like minded group. I'm happy to meet and share ideas. If we need a place to meet up, I'm happy to offer my studio in Saltley; the area is full of potential urban industrial locations, and very close from town.

I often work in Birmngham - I'm based in the East Midlands but it's pretty easy for me to get over to Brum and the surrounding areas.  I'd be interested in modelling for this

I am Birmingham and this is an area of work I am very interested in learning and developing. I have a number of suitable locations available in the Walsall, Wolverhampton area as well which may help.

Look forward to hearing more, but would really like to be involved.

Briefly my idea for the group is for it to be pro active with all members taking an active part.  Experienced and beginner strobists are very welcome and the essence is to learn, share and help each other

I've posted about this group on 3 different sites and the response has been very good so I feel it's time to get a meet together and discuss how the group will function. I'll post details once I've selected a venue.

The first meet will allow us to get to know each other and plan our first group shoot and lay down a few basic ground rules, and to share ideas and information. I also plan to set up a flickr group for discussions and to show off our images.

More information soon.
