Hello, American in Brighton.

Discussion in 'New Members Introduction' started by Nicky The Expat, Sep 7, 2015.

    Hello all!

    My name is Nicky, I'm a 30 year old American expat living in Brighton, UK, married, mother of two, and hobbyist photographer. I've been exploring for a number of years now and now that I'm SO close to finally getting my UK driving license, I'm looking to find more locales to photograph. Understandably such communities work on having credibility with the members in order to obtain location information for current sites, so I wanted to introduce myself, post about some of the locations I've been in, and ask you all what can I do as a means of establishing myself as trustworthy?

    My first explore was the Shoreham Cement Works in Sussex but I haven't any of those photos any longer sadly.

    My second was the infamous Hellingly Asylum, now nearly completely torn down:

    My third was Potter's Manor near Crowborough (now under development sadly), where myself and a friend shot a dark and gritty Red Riding Hood set:

    My Fourth was this amazing manor, sometimes called Furhouse or Bull Manor. I doubt anything will ever top this amazing house!

    My fifth explore was a set of abandoned greenhouses outside of Ditchling:

    My latest explore was just last week on our holiday to Wales when we spotted the abandoned Gwrych Castle near Conwy:

    Looking forward to getting to know the community and finding out about many currently explorable locales around the South East!!

    Hello & Welcome along!

    The preview shots look good so far. The best way to get yourself known around the forum is to post reports from the place you have visited and before too long you will be out exploring with other people from the forum.

    First thing to do is post full reports of the previews you have posted so far (I would hold of posting the 'dress up' shots though as there are not many people who would be too interested in those, people on here prefer seeing more of the buildings people visit.

    Is it worth doing reports on places from years ago, especially those that are no longer available? Happy to do it obviously but wouldn't want to be promoting outdated information!
