    Favorite ULF photographers

    I was talking wit someone the other day about favorite photographers. I realized in our discussion most of the photographers we talked about were LF photographers but not many ULF photographers were mentioned (Michael Smith was one). Now that I am in the rank of ULF I am curious to know who are your favorite ULF photographers? Historically and present day?

    Shimon and Lindemann had some serious fun with their 12x20:

    Alas, Julie Lindemann passed away back in 2015. John Shimon continues to hold the faculty position that they shared at Lawrence University in Wisconsin.

    EDIT: Yes, that's a 5x7 Gowlandflex that John is waving around.

    Watkins was perhaps the most brilliant ever in that category, in terms of compositional skill - well ahead of his time. His competitor Muybridge also did some amazing things (so did his defense lawyer!!!). I love Julia Cameron's prints, but never thought of her as truly ULF; wonder just how large she did shoot? Vittoria Sella was the champion when it comes to sheer effort and danger; much of his work was downright stunning too. Oldies but goodies.

    Clyde Butcher also uses 11x14 and 12x20 ULF cameras for his work.

    Julia's first camera was a 10x12 and later on she used a 12x15 camera.
