Announcing an Arca-Swiss Tech Camera Workshop – April 2015

Join us April 23rd – 26th 2015, on location in Charleston, South Carolina for a unique experience to shoot with Arca-Swiss tech cameras and Phase One Digital Backs. The workshop is a cooperation with Digital Transitions and Rod Klukas from Arca-Swiss USA. We plan to photograph in a beautiful antebellum plantation and along coastal beaches with the location guidance of Charleston Photography Tours.

Arca-Swiss will have technical cameras, Rm3di and Factum, M-line view camera, and the new Universalis camera for medium format and DSLR use. For existing Arca-Swiss customers – learn new techniques, see accessories like e-module or the new Dex shutter system in use, and improve your digital workflow.

Sutro Baths SF Large Format Photography Meetup 6/10/2012

I am meeting the SF Bay area Large Format Photography group for a Meet-up at Sutro Baths on Sunday June 10, 2012.

The Baths
Sutro Baths opened March 14, 1896 with a $1 million pricetag — an extravagant public bathhouse envisioned and developed by the eccentric one-time mayor of San Francisco, Adolph Sutro. After working its way through its many lives (Playland, 1960s ice rink, etc..)— burned down while being demolished on June 26, 1966. In 1980 the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) bought the land for $5,500,000.

Sutro Baths is on the ocean on the far west edge of San Francisco, just north of Ocean Beach and south of Land’s End. It’s immediately north of the legendary Cliff House.

We are meeting in the parking lot at Cliff House at 10:00 AM.

I will have the Arca-Swiss 141 4X5 Field Camera, D4, C1 Cube, and Z1 tripod heads, plus other accessories. If anyone is interested, I will also have the new RL3d 4×5 technical camera for demonstration.

Please contact me if you need more details, otherwise, hope to see you there for a great day of photography!

New England Photography Workshop, October 5-8

New England Workshop, October 5-8

Just a quick post to let you know I’ll be attending the Capture Integration workshop in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire. Base camp will be the luxury Historic Mount Washington Hotel.

Capture Integration sales and technical reps Dave Gallegher, Doug Peterson, Steve Hendrix, and Chris Snipes have organized one of the best landscape photography workshops to date. In addition, 6 hours of Capture One training will be provided during the event.

We’ll have lots of Arca-Swiss equipment for attendees to demo during the event. Representatives from Leaf, Mamiya/Leaf, and Phase One will  be attending, as well as presentations from Rodney Lough, Jack Flesher, Guy Mancuso, and Robb Williamson.

This is a rare opportunity in a beautiful setting for a workshop experience. Fall color should be prime!
