Europe Photobloggers » The story

The idea behind Europe Photobloggers was born out of a desire to connect with other like-minded, camera crazy, web inclined, creative types.

An initial e-mail exchange took place between Chrys, Brandon, Fredrik and Lorissa, then opened up to additional photobloggers through a Yahoo! Group, and then later replaced by a Wiki.

Not long after, some 50+ people were meeting face-to-face in London at the well known Troubadour – not just one night, but two. The group connected alright, over drinks and talk of focal lengths and apertures and crop factors. Together we pulled off a gallery exhibition, print swap, give-aways from our generous sponsors, photo walks throughout London, and a brunch on Sunday afternoon. Afterwards everyone met back online, telling stories and posting photos on their own photoblogs and on Flickr. There it was. Seed planted.

Who is keeping the community alive now?
Alfonso, with the invaluable support of Barcelona Photobloggers and all meetup attendees.

Our goal is to provide an online meeting place where photobloggers can connect and participate in the annual Europe-wide meetup which takes place in a different city each year.
