Waterford Ultra Large Camera Workshop 2001greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread
Does anyone knows if there will be, and when, an 2001 edition of the well rated workshop on Ultra Large Cameras, held on Waterford School by Tilmann Crane & Co? Here in Brazil we're always late to learn about the news. So I thank for any kind of information about it. Thanks, Cesar Barreto

This years workshop will be June 24-30. Camera formats from 4x10 to 20x24 Polaroid will be there for participants use. Experienced students of Tillman's advanced classes will shlep the gear for you & help with the grunt work. Paula Chamlee, Steve Simmons, Michael A. Smith, Tillman, Lois Connor will all be there helping with hands on shooting in the field as well as with class demo's. Camera maker Keith Canham & Ron Wisner will be there & we are hoping Ron will bring his new 20x24 Polaroid so we will have two or more of them.
Camera handling, from choosing & using, darkroom & display will all be covered. This year there will be special emphasis on making negatives for specific processes with more info on silver, platinum and other alt process neg requirements.
Field trips will give experience on location and the week includes all meals and motel rooms. A nice package deal in a great location. As we speak(word process?) a shooting trip to the Bingham Canyon Copper Pit (Kennecott open pit mine) is being worked on. We hope to get permission for a special shoot & access. It isn't 100%, but it looking positive. We will know more shortly.
If you have questions, e-mail Tillman directly. firstname.lastname@example.org will get you there. He is a great guy & the workshop is a good one. And yes, I am prejudiced as I am part of the staff for it.
