Thread: Politics in Photo Societies

    Intesting topic...
    The reason I haven't joined any clubs / societies is precisely because of the politics there.
    Have always wanted to contribute back to society, teaching, volunteering etc but I have been holding back to join to the society because I've heard a lot about the politics that goes on inside..

    Sad... but that's life..

    Humans, society and politics are all part of an equation. But not all politics are bad, though perhaps most are. It all sums up to the motive and intent of the parties involved.

    When photographers want to enter politic they form a society.

    Some office bearers went into the annual meeting with their Chewbacca for a show of strenght.

    And most standing for re-election are ex-Jedi with a few clones thrown in. But when they lost they retired to The Dark Side.

    It's just human nature. TS, don't be too bothered about it. I know which society you are referring to

    One year some members of Old Republic were not elected and a Rebel Alliance was formed to undermine the reigning Empire.

    The Light Side of the Force eventually won power with the help of Droids and Ewoks.

    The photographers who are interested in politics are power-thirsty Jar Jar Binks with DSLRs hanging from the necks.

    last year i joined a bunch of like-minded photographers around my area. the original idea was casual get-together, chitchat, sharing, makan, etc.

    by the time we completed 2 meetups within 1 month, they were talking about electing office bearers thats when i decided to get out.
