Our recent workshop in Flagstaff, Arizona was very successful with a great group of hardworking participants.


Join Rod and Randy in Tucson, AZ on March 22-23, 2008, for a weekend of refining and learning Large Format Photography with the Arca Swiss Camera System.

The unique qualities of Large Format Photography will be explained with a hands-on approach in several locations around Tucson, Arizona. We will work with buildings and abstract, as well as, close-up subject matter.
On our other day we will work on landscape in desert/mountain areas weather permitting. We may also visit an air museum with many aircraft on display.

At all of these stops Randy and Rod will be working with everyone on an individual basis to refine their technique with their camera on an image they would like to make. The workshop is limited to a maximum of 12 participants.

While there will be an emphasis on the Arca Swiss system, all brands of large format cameras are welcome, as well as, anyone thinking of moving into Large Format photography or entertaining a change in cameras.

Randy Efros began his career as a Fine Arts Photographer over thirty years ago.
A native of Arizona, Efros traveled extensively in The United States and abroad seeking a wide variety of subject matter for his work. Working both in color and black and white, what is now a large body of work best termed ‘abstract’, has resulted in over thirty one-man shows and 13 portfolios.
His photographic talents early on brought him to the attention of the Weston family and resulted in him working closely with Cole and especially Brett Weston. He currently collaborates with Kim Weston on several workshops as well.
