Winter - 2006
2007 Looks like a great year ahead with
several shows and workshops being scheduled and a promise of travel and
the opportunity to make some great new photographs.
My first scheduled show of the year opens on Friday, January 19th at
John Kitt's 422 gallery in Phoenix.
The show features some of my big color photographs, some 16x20 and 20x24
black and white photographs, and my newScotland Platinum Portfolio.
There will be a second reception on February 16th. So if you are in
Phoenix come join us for the fun.
On March 23-25 I
will be co-teaching an Arca-Swiss Workshop with Rod Klukas.
These are always great workshops for beginner or veteran to add to your
view camera skills, have some fun, and make some good images. Contact
Rod at: 480-206-4770/800-777-6627 to sign up.
On April 19-22 I will be co-teaching a special Platinum Workshop with
Kim Weston at Wildcat Hill in Carmel.
It is always a joy to work at Edward Weston's famous home where Kim, his
wife Gina, and son Zach now live. For more information and to sign up
On June 15-17 I'll also be co-teaching a Large Format Workshop with Kim
working at Wildcat and the Carmel area. 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.
On July 19-21 I'll be in Santa Fe, New Mexico for the APIS (Alternative
Photographic International Symposium) put on by Bostick & Sullivan. Kim
Weston will be one of the speakers at the event. Register at
www.bostick-sullivan.com or call 505-474-0890.

As we enter the New Year I want to thank everyone that made 2006 a
terrific one. Thanks to Juan Garcia and John Prouty for a great job
remodeling my darkroom and making it fun to work in, John Kitts and 422
for making great frames and giving Phoenix a place to see great
photography. Thanks to Rod Klukas for his vast photographic knowledge
and friendship and for teaching large format photography at Scottsdale
Thanks to Martin Reekie, Kim and Gina Weston and everyone that attended
the 2006 Weston/Efros Scotland Workshop at Hospitalfield and
participated in the Scotland Show at 422 in November. It was a great to
see such fine work being produced by everyone. Thanks also to Martin
Reekie, Malcom Thomson and Colin Ruscoe for their help at the workshop
and for sending some truly great prints for the Scotland Show.
Thanks to all the people that bought my photographs, attended workshops,
took private tutorials, or visited during the past year.
And thanks to Sue for her love, support and companionship, and for
bringing home Buddy, our new 100lb German Shepherd to liven up our home
and provide us with lots of exercise.
Here's hoping that you get out and take lots of photographs this year.
If you are ever in Phoenix please call and stop by and see us.
