    I am currently working as a contract wedding photographer for a small wedding studio in south-central Pa. I have experimented with photography, in many roles, since early 1965. I have worked as a stringer for several small newspapers doing mostly college level sports photos; portraits of children; scenics and other outdoor-type photos; ran film processors of various types, worked as a film and print retoucher in B&W; currently doing the wedding thing. I recently "discovered" LF and hope to become somewhat proficient by the end of the year. I currently shoot with Hasselblad, Nikon, Crown Graphic, Calumet, Canon digital and a whole host of refurbished vintage cameras. I process film up to 4x5 in a Phototherm processor. I am always in need of cheap 4x5 film to experiment with along with info on best place to buy cheap chemicals. I hate ebay, but don't see an alternative at the moment. I thirst for knowledge and hope that I can provide some info in exchange. In an unrelated theme, I have a Master's degree in Business Administration, a BS in Business Administration and an Associate degree in Aviation Technology. Thanks,

    Welcome to APUG!!!
    Hm... a contract wedding photographer.... "Hey I got a contract out on the Smith & Kelp wedding. Who wants to shoot them?" haha :wink: Sorry... my sense of humor gets the best of me once in a while.
    Sounds like you have a slew of cool cameras! If you have a thirst for knowledge, this is one great place to slake it! Welcome!
