This is an initiative that I'm setting up for photographers who might want to do stuff but might have reservations about doing it on their own. Examples that spring to mind would be things like night shots or isolated ruins.
I'm not fully sure of how it will work but the loose idea is as follows:
Here is a google map with the locations of people who are willing to be photobuddies. You put a placemarker on the map for yourself and your boards.ie userid and, if you've a twitter id, maybe that also.
In general, I think the quickest way of contacting people here will be via PM or, probably, twitter, hence contact details.
Think it might also be useful to have a label on twitter and it looks like no one is using #photobuddy.
So you could do something like "going to Skerries to take photographs of boats after dark, need a #photobuddy" if you didn't know who to contact or:
@someboardsuser going to Skerries to take pictures of boats after dark, want to come?
That's the idea anyway. I'm open to ideas. Map should be updatable by all at this stage too.
