Charles P. Farmer Workshopgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread
Greetings to All, I recently found a thread under the workshop category suggesting that folks who have atteded large format photography workshops share their thoughts on their experiences...So, here is mine. Chuck Farmer recently put on a week long program based at Gerry Spences Thunderhead Ranch in Dubois Wyoming. There were 6 participants of varying levels of expertise and widely scattered orrigins. Simply stated, this was as extraordinary experience. The facilities and amenities at the ranch were superb, going far beyond what one might dare expect. Chuck is an amazingly patient and competent instructor. He spent the entire week helping all of the participants at their appropriate level and, to his great credit, did not expose a single sheet of film the entire trip, this has been unheard of in my previous experiences! The days were spent shooting and there were topical discussions, portfolio reviews, or highly pertinant and useful lectures every evening. There was an endless variety of great things to shoot including vast(really!!) landscapes, old buildings, an old town, and the Tetons ( my favorite). I can do no less than offer this workshop,and Chuck, my highest praise and strongest recomendation. I would, and will, do it again. Thanx Chuck!!!

Thanks for the comment. Actually, the spot where unsollicited workshop comments should be posted is not this QA forum, but the Workshops page.

Way to go Doug!!! I too will attend this workshop again. Chucks workshops are a real quality experience. As an instructer Chuck is simply the best. Cann't say enough about Gerry Spences Thunderhead Ranch and the fine staff that looked after us. Hope to see you there next year.

Now I can't wait! I'm taking my first workshop ever next week - Chuck's Zion workshop.

Thanks for the info. I sometimes visit family out in that country, so it might be interesting to try to arrange a trip during a workshop.
