Waterford Ultra Large Camera Workshop 2001

Discussion in 'Large Format' started by cesar_barreto, Jan 3, 2001.

  1. 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
     
  2. Ask Fred Newman at info@darkroom-innovations.com; I believe he usually participates.
     
  3. It has not been officially announced yet, as far as I know, but
    participants in last year's workshop received a letter stating that
    next year's would be held June 24--30, 2001.
     
  4. 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.

    <p>

    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.

    <p>

    If you have questions, e-mail Tillman directly.
    tillman@softsolutions.com 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.
