The very first meet was on August 22, 2004. There were posts prior to that date, with the organisation of the meet to be attended to and such ...

but to some discussion and images that were posted following that very first meet.

Ahhh - the memories ;)

It's about time we had an "I remember when" thread - thanks for starting it!

I remember it wasn't all that long after I bought my D70 and I was looking through the DPR forum and came across Gary's thread seeing if there was interest in a local group - it was the right time, right place, and I've not looked back since :)

Didn't make the very first meet (in Circular Quay as Gary says) but did get down to the Brighton le Sands meet, which was rather different - no-one knew anyone, and certainly no-one had any idea what this group was to become!

Over the ensuing years I've made many great friends - some of which I now classify as my very best friends - and had some great times. These days, meets are like a family gathering - one where everyone gets along though - it's a bit like we're long-time friends meeting after a time of absence.

Long may it continue!

12th September 2004 a day not to be forgotten (at least by me) - the day when I came in as member #59. Where did those three years go :roll:

Friends, peers, fun, laughter but above all comradeship in the best hobby in the world (next to marriage, that is) :wink: :lol: :lol:

Yep - caught a post from Gary on dpreview and joined on 22 August. Member #39.

I must say that being a member here has been very rewarding - both photographically and personally.

Member #326, just a newibe really, incidentally that number was also my HSC aggregate in 1979, what a totally useless piece of information, except for the fact that my two best friends in the same year got 325 and 327 respectively!

I must say the D70 camera was revolutionary in it's day, it was another class of camera.

Enjoyable post!

I joined about a year after this has started, but got to mention, this is the greatest thing I ever experienced in photography community up so far. I learned so much here that I wouldn't if I didnt join. Simply the best!!

And this site is not that colourful nor attractive in its design (just very simple), but I keep visiting on weekly if not daily basis. Something I just can't stop doing... Maybe I'm addicted :roll:

I have been around for since 8 june 2005 so that is just shy of a year after creation.

I remember reading about the first AW diner and thinking that this was a community unlike the other forums I was reading.

Looking at that old post I have one question
Whatever happened to Birddog?
For those of you who who don't know who I am talking about he is the man who introduced us to the special individual known as Poon.

Oh and does he still hold the record for most posts?

This is certainly a great post. Thanks for the history lesson.
Like most who have posted I am a regular visitor but not as regular a poster. I am still wanting to crack that 1000 post mark..... one day.
For me this is the place of learning and sharing. I can look back to the day I joined (7th March 2005. #540) and see now how much my photos have improved since then.
Many thanks to Gary and all the other Mods who keep this site going for our enjoyment, education and friendship.

Member 316 here.

I stumbled across this website after I was gifted a D70 for Christmas.

While I spent time here it was fun, the people helpful and supportive and a fun bunch to meet up with. I remember after the first Anniversary gathering my husband told me I had hooked up with a great crowd of people...and he was right.

But unfortunately I am rarely here anymore...raising family, not time to do the photography I want got in my way. Occasionally I drop in and check things out, and it is good to see the familair faces still here, and the amazing work they are now producing.

I still have the D70 with no real plans to replace it.

Postby Geoff on Thu Nov 08, 2007 10:05 pm

I was very enthusiastically and excited to be the 3rd member (1st after Gary and Leigh) on the forum. I was at the right place and the right time, which happened to be online (on dpreview) when I saw a post made by Gary about his desire to start up an Aussie forum...and I'm still here, and loving it. Whilst my life has become somewhat more crazy (busy) my input here has reduced somewhat but what has been said before this post is so true. There is an amazing amount of camaraderie and friendship on this forum - which has kept me close by! I'm proud I was one of the first few, and still look back at the very first 'mini meet' with great fondness :).

So, let me make this a small plug to book in for the dinner on the 8th of December if you're in Sydney, they're always a fun night :).

Wow this is a trip back down memory lane. It is interesting to read your first few posts again, see the first ever pic you . I am member 200, joined in late 2004 after owning the camera for a few months ;) I think I was probably a lurker too :P

I know that I loved the community (and still do) the willingness of sharing from the other members, the criticisms that were un-biased and helpful. It is funny that all of that is still here today. Somewhat of a testament to the Moderating team and the Admin team and of course my fellow members!

Great work guys, I am happy to still be a part of this great community!

As an accompaniment to this thread, this is my second post here - I thought some newer people might be interested in the story behind some of the people here.
