    A kind and true gentleman, and the rare authentic teacher...only passion makes one as generous as Per was...deepest sympathies to his family, students, and friends.

    When I can be back in Los Angeles long enough or I start working back in Los Angeles, you can join another off roading photographer and me going to Oceano Dunes, the Mojave Desert or the San Bernado Mountains to take photographs and celebrate Per's memory.

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    I had asked Per if I could tentatively register; however, I'm coming from a trip to the Yucatan the week before and arrive home the day before the Santa Fe workshop begins. I really wanted to be able to work with Per again in Santa Fe. I missed the 5 Churches workshop last year too.

    I had sent Per an email a couple of weeks ago stating that I just couldn't work the Santa Fe trip because of the Yucatan trip. I realize a lot of planning goes into these events and participation are key.

    I believe continuing to hold annual workshops in Santa Fe and Tonopah in remembrance of Per would be an idea that I hope others share as well.

    Please include me in any workshop email distribution for future workshops.

    Looking forward to meeting some of you in Pasadena on July 30.

    should it? could it? go ahead with Per in spirit?

    Let me know your thoughts. I was to do some work with Per last Thursday as we planned. We spoke on Monday and he seemed to be on the mend. When I did not hear from him I had this terrible feeling and called and wrote to him everyday ...

    Deeply saddened, Per touched so many of us photographically and as a dear friend.

    I first met Per at the Mt. Shasta workshop several years ago. I felt a connection since he was a recent kidney recipient and I was a recent donor. I had the opportunity to attend several other gatherings with him over the years and just this spring spent a week with him at his home for a darkroom workshop. I have grown to deeply admire and love the man. I was hoping to someday have the chance to travel with him to Denmark. His family lives fairly close to where my relatives came to Utah from about 130 years ago.
    I am grateful to him for his willingness to share his knowledge with us. I will miss him.

    How sad. It's touching reading all the heartfelt praise from those who knew him.
