    Norwegian LF gathering

    Around the beginning of October (or end of September) this year a few (or many?) of us LF Norwegians will gather in the fairly remote community of Stryn, Nordfjord. The location is chosen parly for it's location halfway between everything, and that it has some of the most spectacular landscapes in Norway. An example is this picture from last September.

    We hope to bring sufficient machinery and chemicals to develop B&W in any size from 6.5x9cm to 30x40cm (that's 16x12" in English), but probably not colour this time around.

    There will be cameras. There will be lenses. I will bring all of mine, and I have lost count... Most of mine are from between 1870 and 1970, so I hope someone will bring something modern too.

    Accomodation is plentiful, there are more guest beds than inhabitants there. As soon as we have an idea of how many to expect, we will select the most appropriate place and make the necessary arrangements.

    Getting there is slightly more complicated, but we can help. If not, we can at least advise...

    Anyone is welcome; contact me for more information as and when available!

    Oh by the way: It's not a workshop, but a "gathering". So participation is free.

    VA ROLIGT! Sounds great, I am game from the 22nd!
    I will be coming with my Wisner 12x20 and lots of film.

    I am open to suggestions for how to best get there...
    I am in Stockholm Sweden and my studio is right next to Bromma airport.
    I am considering driving if there is anyone whom want to split the gas cost.
    So if there is anyone whom would like to arrive in Stockholm before to maybe shot in the Stockholm
    area and archipelago drop me a line. Lars Åke Vinberg are you interested?

    I might actually pack my 11x14 and go up there!
    (and buy a box or two of slide 4x5 for the color...)

    That would be nice...

    Come on Eirik! Bring her along. I am sure there are hospitals in the area...
    If anything you will have plenty whom can document the occasion.
    A portrait of the new baby at 1:1 on a 12x20?

    Yeah, I tried that one but she gave me a look that told me not to joke about that. A 12x20" portrait would have been neat though...
    I havent forgot your invitation Tedd, I will let you know next time I am around. Maybe I have finished my 16x20-camera by then.
    Best regards,
    Eirik Berger
