I hope this is the right place to post information about workshops (if not, please remove and let me know and I will repost).
Tim Parkin and Dav Thomas are running one day workshops in the UK aimed at getting people started with large format photography.
Attendees do not need to have cameras as they can try out any of the range of cameras available (Chamonix, Linhof Technikardan and Technika, Ebony, Toyo).
Film will also be supplied and attendees will have their photos developed and sent on to them after the workshop has finished.
The next workshop is on the 22nd May 2010 and based in the Peak District.
