    Not from the northwest, but I believe that if you PM Sean he will set up a new regional group. I am surprised that there isn't one since there are plenty of folks here from that area.

    There is a whole group of APUG members in the Seattle area involved in building their own LF cameras - here is the ongoing thread (although there have been no posts since February):

    We're actually defunct. Barry Young and I are the only ones left. As it happens, Barry lives in Tacoma and I live in U.P.

    Please feel free to IM me and we can get together with our large cameras. I have a 4x5 and an 8x10, plus a nearly finished 8x10.

    Alaska is home to the rugged individualist, you don't need us.

    i no longer have a 45 anymore..mostly shoot with my old beat up F2 nikon and a few good lenses..lol o F5 when feelin brave. but compared to haulin a lf around mt rainier-a ol F5 is light. hahaha!! but i am still interested in a local group and all apologies to those folks up in alaska! when i fisrt wrote this i was naive to think that alaska is not part of the northwest. as of right now i have tues and wed off if that helps-it changes once a month or every two months largely depending on when our shift bid at work happens to be going on. waiting to hear from ya all soon!

    Hi everybody, I too live in the Pacific Northwest (US that is) and would also like to know of like minded, film based photographers in this area. I live in the National Scenic Area of the Columbia River Gorge in Southwest Washington (Washougal is the closest town, Portland Or. is the major city). My wife and I moved here over ten years ago and I must say that as far as photography is concerned, it is a great place to be.
