Stupid idea?

I have had a really stupid, nay, crazy idea! What if, say a few or even a group of photographers in the same area get together and network. I was thinking, you know, about helping out each other in marketing, lighting techniques, business promotion, collaboration to enhance profitability that sort of thing?

Course we could just forget about that and just use the forums for bitching but if you are interested in my idea then email me direct.

isnt that what all the localised meets, studio days, workshops and so on, are for?
Modesty is just arrogance in stealth mode

If people in reality are anything like the moaning old hags you get on the forums on a daily basis then no, it's not a good idea.
When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

If you made it a profoto appreciation group, I am sure Red checker would join in a precise flash!

Perhaps if you stopped sniping at other members and concentrated on your own business you might not get negative feedback. When you look at the scores Red Checker has 32 positive and no negatives and yours are?
Perhaps being a member of a profoto appreciation group might be something you want to consider?

It's not such a crazy idea.  I regularly meet up with photographers who share similar interests.

If you ever come up to the frozen wastes of Scotland we do this with the SCN.

Thank you for your input, (not) in my experience Red Checker is perfectly able to look after himself, and is indeed a profoto fan. I have one negative reference, which frankly I see no reason to defend. I fail to see what business it is of yours.As I am an elinchrom man myself,I fail to see why I would be interested in profoto appreciation. Are you judge and jury on this site, and what,precisely, are you inferring?
