    Greetings again,

    We've had a very good response to the workshop with Per Volquartz scheduled for some time in September.

    So, for anyone who isn't quite sure yet... we're instituting a definitive cut-off date of July 30, 2006. Get your names in to me asap..

    After the above date, we won't be accepting new attendees. :>|

    Thanks

    Cheers

    Re: A Workshop with Per Volquartz in Vancouver, BC...

    I spoke with Per a few months ago and was hoping you would get a workshop out here in western canada. I live beside banff national park which is great but i have 2 questions....is there a specific date as i am a wedding photographer and most weekends are booked already. and secondly, why the city of vancouver for a bunch of large format photogs? hookers and the needle trade in the east end or over-crowded stanley park? Right across the straits lies victoria and the area has sooke and 3 great beaches and semi remote areas within 40 minutes....and great gardens for the flower freaks.....chinatown, old victorian homes, close to long beach and tofino......please consider southern vancouver island. or heck, come to the rockies. I am already booked into Lake Ohara, the jewel of the rockies, for 4 days in late sept. lots of great places in british columbia.......
    and maybe some of you can come over here to visit after the workshop.....love to help anyone out....

    Re: A Workshop with Per Volquartz in Vancouver, BC...

    Hi Richard,

    Thank you for your input.

    Frankly, Banff and The Rocky Mountains would be great places to shoot. Likewise for Vancouver Island and Lake O'Hara. La Connor isn't too, too far away from here either. Likewise, Whistler and Squamish would be beautiful places to photograph as well.

    However, we had to have a starting point and Vancouver is that starting point. At this stage of the game, we're still in the midst of discussions and have asked for input from the LF community here in Vancouver to suggest some shooting locations.

    We'll be exploring more options as we progress through the planning stages!

    Cheers
    Life in the fast lane!

    Hi Richard,

    LOL... no, no problems at all!

    Life is too short to worry about stuff!

    I know there's some great shooters out in the Banff area. I use to get out that way at least once a year for a management course at The Banff Center. However, I've not attended over the past several years. However, one never knows!

    I'm sure there are some guys that will want to head out that way after the workshop since they've not been there before. So... who knows? You might just get a knock on the door!

    Cheers

    Re: A Workshop with Per Volquartz in Vancouver, BC...

    Greetings again,

    The official dates for the workshop have now been set for:

    Friday, Saturday, Sunday September 15 - 16- 17.


    However, that said, Per has kindly agreed to stay around for a few days after the workshop and for those who have missed a day for whatever reason... you can do a make-up class!

    We are still looking for location suggestions so if you can help... it would be much appreciated.

    If you have any questions regarding this workshop, please, don't hesitate to contact either Per or myself.

    Thank you.

    Cheers
    Life in the fast lane!

    Re: A Workshop with Per Volquartz in Vancouver, BC...

    Greetings all,

    Well, we're not that far away from our workshop and Per is working hard to put together a program that will maximize the benefits of the experience.

    So, due to the level of interest we now have two sessions for this workshop. The first is from Sept. 15 - 17th and the second session will run from the 18 - 20th. Would you kindly let me know which session you'd like to attend. As it is at the moment... we have approximately 30 attendees and our goal is to have 15 per session. I'm hoping there will be some flexibility in scheduling here.

    I am in the midst of scouting out locations for us to shoot at. If there are any local attendees that have ideas as to the best locations... please let me know asap. We already have a bunch of places in mind but we're always open to more.

    For those of you who would like to join us for dinner on the evening of September 17th... please let me know that you will be attending. As soon as I'm apprised of the numbers... I will be contacting the owner of this great little French bistro to see if they can put together a fixed price menu. Alternatively, we can also pick ala carte from their wonderful menu. They've been voted the best bistro in Vancouver for the last number of years and is highly regarded. Here is their website:

    http://www.bistropastis.com/main.cfm

    We will be meeting at a small breakfast cafe at 7:00 AM each morning of the workshop. I'm still working on this so I'll let you all know the exact address as soon as I confirm with them that it's okay with them. I'm sure they'll be expecting us to imbibe in breakfast each morning... their pancakes are absolutely terrific. So, I'm hoping we'll be able to support them on this end of things.

    Lastly, due to the legal formalities that we all have to live with these days... I'm attaching a Waiver of Liability Form for your signature. PLEASE READ IT THROUGH COMPLETELY. If there are any questions, please, do not hesitate to contact either myself or Per directly. We will require this form to be completed prior to accepting your participation in the workshop. Please remember that this is a workshop that Per and I are putting together in the interest of helping people learn about Large Format photography and photography in general.

    I would very much appreciate your confirming that you've received this email. Please respond by sending me your name and address along with a telephone number.

    As soon as I have a full response from you, I'll be disseminating everyone's names and email addresses to all the other attendees. Then, if there are some of you that live close to one another and want to tee up transportation etc... you're more than welcome to do so.

    Remember... some areas that we'll be going to will require that you bring mosquito/bug repellant. As well, please bring proper attire so that you won't be cold. Remember that this will be mid-September and the weather (although "usually" nice) can be on the cooler side.

    I'm looking forward to meeting all of you folks and think this will be a great event.

    Cheers
    Henry

    Oh how I wish I could go... I've been to a few of Per's workshops and have loved the time spent with other LF'ers shooting and talking.
