    Oceano Dunes Get Together In Honor of Per Volquartz

    I'm in the planning stages of doing a get together for Oceano Dunes In Feb 2012 but I want to see the interest in this before i do a full blown get together, any interest please feel free to chime in on this and I am doing this in honor of my very good friend Per Volquartz, as most of you know he suddenly past away in July of this year and since i will be in California and having never been there before I was hoping to get a bunch of us together to swap stories and images and etc. This is open to all formats including 35mm and of course larger, I will most likely be bringing my Mamiya RZ67 and my 8x10 Burke & James.... I will also be showing the last images me and Per had worked on in May after the Tonopah gathering.

    Hope all is well with everyone and the dates are going to be Feb 24,25 & 26

    Thanks again Ted also if someone can repost this at APUG it will be greatly appreciated

    Put me on your list... I love the Oceano Dunes and really enjoyed everything I learned from Per.

    Joseph Dickerson on these boards would probably want to attend also.

    I would like to go. I didn't get a chance to know Per as well as some of you have, but he did help me out a couple times regarding locations and other things. It would be cool to be a part of this memorial gathering. Thanks.

    Ted,

    I too would like to join you. In the short time I spent interacting with Per I found him to be so kind, helpful and modest; a man of exceptional worth. Seeing his last pictures would be an apt memorial.

    Hey everyone seems like we have alot of people interested what I would like is for people to email me at the following address slvrgltndrkrm /@/ aol com with any questions or anything else you might need!

    @ Asher the images I will be showing are the images Per helped me on these are not his last images but they are mine and his direction gave me the great images I have and most are studio work we did together in his studio after the Tonopah workshop, I feel very honored to have had the time to work with him on these images he helped me create some spectacular images I must say!

    Thanks anyone interested please send me a email this is not going to cost anything except for your time and energy! Per gave his knowledge freely and without a thought and I hope to start a new way of continuing his work!

    Thanks Ted

    Re: Oceano Dunes Get Together In Honor of Per Volquartz

    Some ideas have been thrown my way about places to stay near Oceano Dunes

    So the ideas are that if we have enough people get together we can as a group do the following:

    Rent a condo on the beach in Pismo shared costs equally to everyone
    A Hostel owned by an Enviromentalist great guy by the way and camp at the places near the dunes with an RV or somethibg like that but any thoughts or concerned would be greatly appreciated!

    Let me know

    Thanks Ted

    Sorry, I will not be on the West Coast then. 10 February to 12 February would be better for me.

    Did someone say road trip?
    A chance to hunt images and maybe a few deer?
