On June 8-10 I'll be co-teaching a Large
Format Workshop with Kim Weston in Carmel at Wildcat Hill, Edward
Weston's famous home, where Kim, Gina and Zach now live and carry on the
Weston tradition of hospitality. It is always fun to work with the
4x5 or 8x10 camera, so bring yours or borrow one of our Arca-Swiss
cameras for the workshop. You will enjoy taking photographs in the
beautiful Carmel area and learn more about your large format camera.
Enrollment is limited to six people, so sign up now by contacting:
On July 19-21 I'll be in Santa Fe, New
Mexico for the APIS (Alternative Photographic International Symposium)

other alternative processes. Register at

Please continue to check the "Workshop/Tutorial"
section of this website for any new workshops or to make plans for your
very own private tutorial. We can help you make your photography better
and you'll have fun doing it.
A new section titled "Snapshot Diary" is being added to
this website soon. You will be able to see snaps of the places and
people I've seen while out photographing, as well as workshops,
tutorials, show openings and other events.
Since the beginning of 2007 I have been using the Arca-Swiss 8x10 as my
main camera and have really enjoyed working with the larger negative
again. It is so nice making lush black & white 8x10 contact prints and I
am also able to make black & white enlargements using a Durst 8x10
a color head. While I have made thousands of black & white images using
several camera formats over the past years, I have not made very many
8x10 black & white negatives and I'm excited by the challenge. I have
always used the 8x10 for my color work in order to capture more tonal
information by using the larger color negative. Now I'm doing it in
black & white and having fun making silver, POP and platinum prints.
As always, please let me know if you are ever in the Phoenix area and
want to visit, look at prints, or go photographing.
