    Large format at Jan. 6 hearing

    I noticed a gray-haired photographer milling around the witness table with 4x5 film holders sticking out of a jacket pocket and carrying what looked like a Linhof or an old Speed Graphic in one hand. He also had a digital camera or two around his neck. Would that be photojournalist David Burnette? I remember reading somewhere that he still shoots large format on assignment. I did a double-take when I saw those film holders poking out of his pocket.

    Might have been Frank Thorp V, a photographer for NBC news and the husband of reporter Hallie Jackson. He's a younger guy though, I don't think he has gray hair.
    He's been shooting a lot of film, along with digital, for a few years and uses a Speed Graphic at times.

    I saw Frank there for sure. I didn't see any other LF photographers. Speed Graphic with leatherette. He has another with fully refinished wood. A great guy. Recently a guest on the Large Format Photography Podcast.
