Recent head count was more than 16,000. That puts Malaysian Fotopagers to be the most dominant in numbers. If non domiciled Malaysians are to be included we could probably hit 20,000.
The AGM was held on the 4th December 2005 at Taman Warisan Pertanian, Putra Jaya. Spirits were high and there were plenty of fun. For once we dropped our working files and conversations became centered on cameras and what makes good shots. Food was aplenty but failed to distract the participant’s attention from cameras and photography. Without doubt, these were a bunch of die hard photographers, amateurs and professionals. Many exchanged shots of one another. For the day, the photographers became models, albeit unpaid ones. Even the background musics were drowned by continuous camera clicks and flashes.
The AGM was smooth and easy. Posts were filled up without fuss. For me, this was my first time attending a Malaysian Fotopages gathering. It was also the first time I met faces that I knew by names before in the net.
A lot has to be done to bring the numbers in. To the new Committee Members, I wish them a productive year ahead. Good Luck.
