    Thanks for the good word, Jim.

    My focus is on giving the participants a solid practical footing in this incredible process in a relaxed fun atmosphere. And it is hard to beat being in Yosemite in the Spring during the week.

    I also give a shorter version (weekend) in Newport, Oregon in May for those who live in the mountains and wish to travel to the sea instead. But the longer Yosemite workshop affords us the time to dig a little deeper into the process and do a little more fine-tuning and experimentation.

    If anyone is interested in more information on my carbon printing workshops can contact me here or at vgh7001@humboldt.edu

    I can vouch for Kim Weston's Nude in Platinum workshop. It was fantastic! And, of course, being on Wildcat Hill just can't be beat. I'll never forget making my first platinum print in Edward's darkroom.

    have you seen the price they pay for electronics? they probably siphon off the top of their electronics fund...

    BTW robert's educational workshops are top notch.
    My YouTube Channel has many interesting videos on Soft Focus Lenses and Wood Cameras. Check it out.

    Highly recommend Tillman Crane's Platinum/Palladium workshop. He lives in Maine but does workshops elsewhere too (I attended one in Florida). You will leave with some great prints and the ability to replicate the process at your home.

    Also 2nd the recommendation for "Vision & Techniques" workshop with Michael Smith & Paula Chamlee. Its not restricted to AZO/Lodima enthusiasts for it also covers how to explore a scene - the vision thing. And the darkroom techniques are applicable to all traditional B&W printing.

    I'd like to second the comments about Bruce Barnbaum and Don Kirby's workshops. Bruce's darkroom workshops (I can't speak about his field trips) are full hands-on. You work, think, and talk non-stop from breakfast until late at night. If you need kind words and have your ego massaged, it isn't for you. But if you want to think afresh, get really serious about what you are doing (on everything from composition and set-up of the camera to mounting the final prints), and come away with more hints and practical advice than you ever thought possible, then Bruce is for you. He is a world-class teacher and his book, The Art of Photography, is excellent. And he continues to be available to help and advise those who have done his workshops.

    Don Kirby is also a superb teacher and an inspiration. He is not high-octane like Bruce, but a real gentleman and highly experienced in getting across both the aesthetic and technical aspects of his craft. I did one of this Anasazi/Grand Gulch trips and it was one of the best weeks I have ever spent. Unfortunately, I don't think that he and Joan are doing field trip workshops in the canyons any more. But check his website, or send him an email. Cheers, Dave

    Very true. Actually, I don't think good education can ever be a wasted investment for the people with the right mindset. At the very bottom level, it is a great entertainment. Much better than anything we can see on TV or at the games of any sort.

    I added this little web page to my site, describing a bit more of the "what and where".

    Ken -- the picture of you with your view camera -- either you or the camera is pointed the wrong way!
