Title: Questions and Survey
Post by: grsphoto on August 27, 2012, 02:42:53 PM
Hello Group

I am a former Toronto based photographer who is now based in Ecuador.

I am thinking of setting up a photo tour business to show off the natural beauty of this country.  ( I would show some images but I am still teaching myself how to shot landscapes to the caliber of this group)

In order to send the business in the right direction I have a survey on my site I am looking for people to fill out.
http://glennspecht.com/cm/component/option,com_jquarks4s/Itemid,226/id,2/view,survey/ (http://glennspecht.com/cm/component/option,com_jquarks4s/Itemid,226/id,2/view,survey/)

I would appreciate any responses, here or via survey about what you want, and need of a tour company for photography.

Thanks


BTW I asked permission before I posted this request...I don't want to piss people off

Well, I tried: Database Error: Unable to connect to the database:Could not connect to MySQL

Not expecting any Swedes, are you?  ;)

Hi Jeremy

Took me a minute to figure out what you were joking about....

No problem with Swedes, or British, or Americians and I am a long way from the Capital and politics.

Not sure about the database error, it is working for me ( the database and website are in Vancouver )

Thanks for responding

Glenn

Just to say to say the site opens fine here in the UK.
good luck.

I am getting some interesting results.

Most of the photographers who have responded are between 55 & 65.

And there are a lot of couch potatoes... they are not interested in hiking any distance.

I am also surprised at how important Hot Water is.

Ecuador is on my list - I have considered it before but security issue had me worried.
I did Peru on my own but Ecuador seemed a bit more difficult.
Going with a group may be the right way to do it.

Keep us informed.

Security is one of the reasons I am thinking about this, but if you have "done" Peru then Ecuador should not be a problem.

Except for the big cities, Ecuador is pretty safe, compared to many parts of the world.

The problem is always when you carry expensive gear... a 500 lens is worth a years salary to a lot of the people.
