    I'll be there all week too. Doing my usual rounds at Contact. Wish I had more time to have a show myself. Another year when I'm not so busy. (Yeah, right....)

    Regards, Art

    I just met with Simone and Chad from the Lonsdale Gallery... this show has work from Yukon, Nanimo, Oregon , LA, Australia, Texas, Saskatchewan , Michigan, Philly, New York , Quebec, Ontario , British Isles, and elsewhere , I was overwhelmed looking at the variety and process, the show is up for two months and already we think it will have lineups to see it , not to mention being a Feature in Contact.

    the second night we get Brendan Meadows at Liss Gallery , a large show of Lith Prints from digital negatives very fashonistic(is that a word) and the third night Sasha Wolf speaks followed by a Wrap Party featuring a large selection of hand printed Silver Lith prints of Corey Wilyman.
    I think there is something this weekend for everyone... from Phase Demo's , CAPIC downstair talks, various specialists talking about their work and projects...

    Not to mention the workshops at West side studios and the printing workshops at my Lab... All in All its a big venture and I hope to see a large group of APUGers as this is being tailored made for this community.

    Lots of press coming up and lots of feature plugs so hang tight we are just getting started in Marketing this full on.

    Has anyone signed up for the shooting workshops at West Side Studios? I'm looking at either Dead Link Removed or Dead Link Removed. I realize it will be all digital and I have no problem with that, I'll bring my DSLR and maybe the Mamiya as well. I find the description of these workshops a bit generic and vague. Not all that crazy about the images on their websites either. Too much post-processing for my taste. But I'll likely still learn a few things about lighting etc. So ... what are your thoughts on this?

    Chris Gordaneer is considered one of Canada's top Commerical advertising photographers with an incredible background... I do know that on all the workshops you will not be shooting or using your camera, the leaders are taking you from setup to final shoots in all cases and will be using Phase One and Broncolour systems. Westside is a brand of high quality and we imagine a lot of students, assistants and working photographers will take these courses... Chris specializes in Portraits, Liam in Food, and Niki on Fashion.

    Chris has been my friend for over 20 years and a lot of his ex assistants are in great positions all over the world and I still work with a lot of them.

    We also know that a lot of Aussies work is in the Lonsdale show and its good for the international content to spread the word about Photrio.

    This thread is pretty quiet! I'm super excited to be heading to Toronto in a few weeks. It was a tough choice but I ended up booking workshops all three days and I am also looking forward to seeing as many of the gallery shows/openings as I can as well. I got a few prints accepted into the Red Light show which is also exciting (and terrifying).

    Who else is going? Hopefully I get the chance to put some faces to names from people on the board here.

    I delivered 60 pieces earlier today, and I know they are just finished framing the Aussies work... Massive undertaking and still the hang to come.. I am excited to see this show.

    Many people from Photrio in this show as well some from Large Format Photography Group.

    Anthony , I am surprised as well as the quietness on this symposium here, but I know you are going to have a great time, three days full of workshops and three evenings of gallery shows.. with kindred spirits.. you will have a blast.

    I'm quiet because I'm jealous I can't go. :mad:

    Just kidding - it looks like a great event. Hopefully, one of these times, I'll be able to attend one of them. Right now, here in Kyoto, we have Kyotographie going on, and it's been really inspiring to see what other photographers are doing out there. I went to a collotype workshop last weekend which was really fun.

    APUG has lost its luster. Other film sites have more vibrancy, diversity, and genres. Regardless, I'm excited to go to the Symposium, still support APUG, and take loads of shots on film.

    17675 views on the Kodachrome thread in less timeline than the Symposium timeline , Yes I do think this site has changed since the first APUG conference in 2006,

    On a positive note we think we will have a good turnout from the Toronto GTA photo community.. the show at Lonsdale, Liss Gallery and Wrap Party show at 918 all are looking to be packed, I think anyone coming from Photrio is going to have
    a very good time.
    Looking forward to seeing all the members.

    But is that not normal for a film topic compared to a gathering topic?
    I mean, people who for sure will not attent due to distance have likely not that big interest on reading what is going on there.

    And for those of us who really want to go, but can't swing the 10,000 km of travel (in total) and accommodation, it may be that it is just a way of dulling the disappointment.

    I just joined FB this year and have been amazed with some of the groups that I have joined, they have a some of the same people that have left here on them and are very , very active.
    this caught me off guard to say the least. Toronto Film Shooters is one that though I do not participate is quite active, as well there are groups on Gum, PT PD , Digital Negs that I have found very helpful. I hope that the Photrio FB page gets more active.

    I feel there is a very strong history , with a fantastic archive of information, but the activity is not as great as it was and we as oldtimers here should help figure out ways of getting this site known..

    Hence PhotrioSymposium which is directing people here on every marketing blast... Today we sent out AKIMBO adds that has quite a reach as well. Sean will be able to tell me if post Symposium he saw increase in traffic. Thats what we are hoping to achieve
    over the next few weeks.
    Not so sure.. we are actively looking for other locations near you and others to host, the first APUG conference had over 130 visiting members from outside Ontario ,and had very strong backing from the manufacturers. This time we are trying to figure out how to make
    this a long standing tradition in Toronto during Contact so that people know of Photrio and that there is a meeting place of like minds every year or so. Maybe with this in mind you can attend the European event if it becomes available or make a family visit to Toronto one of these years and not only visit a great city but also meet a lot of like minded people.

    btw .. Kodachrome is gone.... the way of the dodo bird.. there are new games in town.
