"Clubs and Workshops in Limburg"



Are there any in the Limburg area for an English only guy? I really miss my club that was stateside. I especially miss the shooting type workshops. I wish there were something similar in Limburg area.

Thanks in advance for any direction!!

Hi Charlie,

I don't know about english clubs and Workshops in Limburg. But I think a some of the dutch Nikonians speak english too.

I can't get much info from your profile and image gallery, but maybe you can shoot with one of more Nikonians together. I'm living nearby Rotterdam. That's about 2 hours drive from the south of Limburg. In the middle it's only one hour

Maybe not exactly what you are looking for but it can be fun. And Nikonians is like a 'club' too.

Regards, Marco

Thanks for the reply Marco. I have just joined Nikonians and am going to a NX2 workshop in Seattle while on vacation stateside. I suppose I need to post more and get a few shots online. As I get older, late 50's here, I seem to enjoy getting the shots more. When I lived in the Seattle area, I loved doing the landscapes. Maybe I will try my hand at shooting the kids playing soccer err football, just to keep skill levels.

A lot of photography is seeing it before its taken, a skill many of us wish to develop. I am semi retired, so have time during the week or weekends to shoot. There is a wildlife park in Gangelt which is a stones throw away. I have yet to visit Africa, but do a bit of traveling, most recently Myanmar. I will try to post and give you an idea of what I have tried in past.

A guy on Depreview.com sent me a list of Dutch photo clubs. I may just have to forge ahead and try to attend some meetings. One on one the folks in Limburg are kind and speak English very well.

Thanks for the reply and I hope we can shoot sometime.

Hi Charlie,

I'm shooting railways in Limburg every year. That's the museum railway ZLSM. They have a railway between Schin op Geul and Simpelveld. Beside trains, I think the area has a lot of landscape possibilities too. And Ihat's not to far away from your location either.

We can meet some time and do some shooting together. That will be fun

Regards, Marco

Hi Charlie, I am new on the Nikonians site just running through some of the topics I saw your question. I don't know if it's to late but I will answer. Thera are a lot of clubs in Limburg that can welcome you as a member and I think that English will not be a problem. In the link below you see al the Limburgian clubs with links, I hope this will after all help you.

Just a short note of thanks for the listing. In particular I am looking for a club that has monthly or semi monthly competitions. With that list, I am sure I will be able to find a club.

Thanks again,
