    Workshop 2017

    Hello can anyone advise on worthwhile workshops in the Fall of this year where LF is used and there are darkroom facities available and naturally good instruction. I am not inexperienced but work in isolation and would like to travel to the US to gain more knowledge and learn

    Thanks for any ideas
    Peter

    The best possible LF workshop on the East Coast USA would be with michael Smith and Paula Chamlee, near Doylestown, PA. The problem is in scheduling it, as they are on the road most of the time all over the world.

    John Sexton has workshops, with darkroom , have to sign on early to save a place for workshop. Look him up in google land to find his site. I have taken his printing class and highly recommend it.

    The "best" workshop is one that covers the subjects that interest you, meaning there is no one best workshop. Find an artist whose work you admire and then contact them for workshop information. It also depends on where you are interested in visiting. For my money, doing a private one on one workshop with someone like Alan Ross at his darkroom in Santa Fe New Mexico would be where I would look. Yes it is more expensive but Alan will tailor the workshop to cover topics that you want. In addition, you can go on field sessions with Alan. You might photograph in the morning, develop film in the afternoon and print in the evening. Also, this type of workshop can be fit into your schedule depending on the artists availability.

    All the suggestions here are great, just do some research.

    There probably is no more knowledgeable, or better technician working today than Alan Ross. He is, or was, the official printer of ANsel's negatives. His own images are truly outstanding, and he doesn't have the huge ego of many workshop providers. He is a pleasure to be with.

    Another vote for Steve Sherman - he focuses on one on one instruction now and can cover anything from film development to split printing -see here:
