I came across this other post by Per Volquartz regarding the Mt Shasta Free Workshop. I am taking the liberty of copying and posting since it covers a bit more information.
Looks like this will be a great event for photographers who work with large format cameras! (Or for serious photographers, period!)
Best news is that its FREE!
The Mt. Shasta Large Format Workshop in Northern California
Monday October 6th through Sunday October 12 (You can check in Sunday afternoon, October 5th after 3PM)
Exact place to meet and places to stay etc. will be emailed around August 18 or so...
Place: Mt. Shasta, Northern California. Environmental portraiture (daylight / night time electronic flash), composition, improving and developing your personal vision, marketing, website building, guerilla marketing using the Net and no money, contrast masks for printing, selling your work, and much more... (incl. the usual stuff such as view camera usage, zone system, processing, Pyro, mounting / matting of prints, etc...) Sponsored by Photo Vision Magazine http://www.photovisionmagazine.com
"So, what's the big deal about another Free Workshop and what's in it for me?"
Well, first of all our Free workshops enable photographers to learn and interact with professionals who have years of experience in large format photography - without you having to empty your piggy bank. (All you have to do is get there, bring film, and pay for your own food and accommodations = motel or camping...)
You will find that our Free workshops are a great way to learn from others who like yourself are dedicated to - and love large format photography.
Part of the time at our workshops is spent shooting in spectacular locations; part of the time attending presentations covering everything from technique to image content.
One of the best aspects of our Free workshops is the friendship you establish with others from around the state or country.
This will not be the last workshop you ever need! On the contrary!
Hopefully you'll get so fired up about photography that you'll be out shooting whenever you can, visiting every photo exhibit in your area when the opportunity arises, and participate in every workshop you can possibly make it to. (And check out new posts on Photo.net at least twice a day!)
The more you think, breathe and live photography, the better your vision gets!
At the Mt. Shasta Workshop you will get to know a variety of photographers who serve as instructors, either for several days or for a single presentation. So far the list includes Harvey Spector, Donald Miller and myself. In addition we will have others who will be there to help with logistics etc...such as Frank LaHorgue...
We are trying to get more photographers / artists to participate and should have a longer list for you in August!
If you have in depth knowledge about a photographic subject matter or a unique technique that you would like to share with others please let us know. We would love to have you give a presentation to the group!
So far Photo Vision Magazine has offered to sponsor this event and will offer free magazine samples to everyone. We have contacted a great number of manufacturers / distributors and hope to have a good list for you in August as well!
Make plans to participate in this great workshop in October. Tell your friends about it! Come for a day or two or stay for the whole week!
It will be great - and how can you beat the price?
So, let us know if you can make it! (The more the merrier - AND the more the easier it will be for us to get serious sponsors for this and future Free workshops!)
