Just signed up today!

Some VERY interesting stuff going on here....keep it coming!

I'm a panorama shooter, almost exclusively in fact.......I know the subject well but always keen to learn more. That's what I find so interesting about photography in general......the more you learn, the more you find there IS to learn!

Photography's my job, 99% of my work is panoramic. I use film exclusively (apart from web design) and shoot mainly 60 and 70mm film. Believe me, digital is years away from replacing film for panoramas, even stitching can't compete with the speed and output quality of film.

In my home darkroom I enlarge colour and B&W negs up to 14 inches long with an enlarger I modified. I built an extra long roll easel for production printing panoramas, I regularly print 3 - 4 foot long panoramas in runs of up to 500 prints.

I'm on the web here www.bigshotz.co.nz

Welcome to the site Clayton. I have seen your website a few times when searching NZ domains for interesting photography sites. Your work looks awesome. I'm an NZ resident living in Auckland (Whangaparaoa), so let me know if you're ever in the neighborhood, would love to see a few of your prints :smile:

Sean.....email me your address and I'll post a few prints to you, you can return the favour sometime.

Today reading through the forum I discovered you were the proud owner of the giant enlarger from Tauranga.....well I seriously considered buying it but lucky for you there were too many obstacles in the way for me to make the deal work. Great to see you bought it, are you using it?

Around the same time I found a De Vere 8x10 vertical enlarger with colour head for a good price so jumped on it. It came from Auckland so like you I had a big freight bill to pay. I ended up spending a lot more than I paid for it getting it running but the effort was worth it. I shoot some 8x10 but tend to crop the format down to 4x10 or less.

Are there many LF shooters up your way?

There are a number of 8x10 shooters down here!
