North Wales Weekend @ Ogwen Valley Bunkhouse
Oct 11 – Oct 13 all-day

A while back I was approached to see if I would be interested in going
up to North Wales and taking some photographs in some of the Big
Chambers in the Slate Mines. Some of which have not been photographed
for a very long period of time and even then it was with Magnesium
Flares etc. Of course I jumped at the chance but also realised this was
not something I could undertake on my own. So far I have recruited a
good team of photographers with 11 confirmed participants and 1 other
person who is yet to decide. To accommodate everyone I have booked a
Bunk House in the Ogwen Valley for the weekend 11th -13th of October
2019 that sleeps 14 people. So I currently have 2or 3 vacant places for
the weekend. Cost wise it is £17.00 per person per night. So if you
would be interested in helping out with gear moving, light holding etc
and the opportunity to see some of these chambers lit up as they have
not been for a very long time and bag yourself some photos then please
let me know. We are also planning on undertaking some 360 Degree
Photographs and taking lots of lighting. This is going to be a pretty
unique opportunity.
