An Incredibly Organic Process – Toronto 2012

In August 2012, ten people met in Toronto to celebrate one of the most magic ways of making photographs: with a 4×5 (and an 8×10) camera, using film. They spent three days to learn and explore every facet of the large format, from portraiture to landscape and architecture, from tilt and swing to rise and fall, from push to pull and from beginner to expert. This is the full version of the video.

How flexible are you? Toronto meet-up TONIGHT!

NewImageYep, short notice, but let’s say it’s a test of how flexible (or how young) you still are.

It’s pre-workshop night and that can only mean one thing: let’s drink! (or eat, or just hang out)

I have made a reservation at 3 Brewers, 275 Yonge Street, Toronto, for tonight, 7pm.

Please RSVP! Click click here to let us know if you’ll be there, so we can make sure we get a big enough table.

Hope to see you there!
