    Is there any chance that you can digitally record your talk and have it posted somewhere for download\streaming playback?

    I live too far away to make it.

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Richard. I'll make a point of seeing the show. I still have a couple of Fred's video's and a collection of his newletters. These were a very important influence when I was first starting out in large format photography.

    Take care,
    Tom

    If I was in the US, I would gladly walk from Washington to Vermont to catch this! Fred Picker did more to help me in large format photography, both technically and aesthetically, than any book, teacher, or guru I ever encountered. He was a superb teacher and he created great products that made life much easier for photographers who like to develop their own stuff and to help them realize their visions. I would certainly urge anyone who can go to to this to do so.

    If there is any way we can access the lectures, program, and anything else through movie or audio files, documents, etc., it would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the heads up! I will try to make the show/lecture on August 17, or at least the show sometime in August, looking forward to it!
    Cheers, Krystyna
