    Hi, Im looking for some known photographers still using the Pentax 6x7 or 67 or 67II. I know two of them Nobuyoshi Araki and Todd Hido, are there any other P67 photographers ??

    me, I use two 67II's and most of the lenses made for it. I guess you don't know me but someone here must. Many shots on my site were made with this system, click on them to see details.

    Hehe nice photos in black & white. I just got myself the Pentax 67 and looking for some info's about other photographers using P67. Wondering why the P67 isn't so well known around and people prefer Mamiya RB67. I had RB67 and wansn't so good for me. The P67 is new for me and don't have any feeling's for now but looking forward to work on it. Give some more names of photographers uisng P67.

    Totally off topic, but on your site, under new work, the one that's shot at Sault St Marie, Ain't that Mackinac Bridge and Mackinaw City / St Ignace instead?

    Chris Wilson (Travel67) shoots with a 67, though he shoots a new Pentax 645D as well.

    His site is worth a look.

    I think James Kay may still shoot the 67.

    Yup. You'd think I'd have it right since I grew up 15 miles from there. Oops. Thanks for pointing that out.

    Many fashion photographers used a pentax 67 , I think that the mirror bang gave a slight vibration that created a distinctive look, as well it looked like a big ass 35mm

    I have one of these cameras but only use it on tripod and with mirror lockup. But it really is a nice camera to use and gives excellent results.

    Hmm... from work and home it works for me. Weird. Try googling Travel67, the first results should be his sites - Here's his blog, but these days it is mostly related to his 645D - http://travel67.wordpress.com/.

    His Flickr photostream: http://www.flickr.com/photos/13377977@N04/ (I'd start from the back as that's where his 67II photos are these days).

    He is photog based in Japan and does a lot of Japan vacation, life and style shooting.

    Bruce Weber.

    shoots Ttri-X and Portra IIRC.

    he's the guy who shoots for A&F, Calvin Klein, Polo, and among other "hipster" brands, and long-term higher-end fashion. In my mind, a true icon in the fashion shooter world.

    I agree, I don't know how she got such sharp stuff from an airplane. Must have been some gyro thing.

    Alison Shaw used to use one. I think she's gone digital now, though.

    Peter Lindbergh used and I believe sometimes still uses a Pentax 67, as Fashion photographer he had to go digital unfortunately. I also believe his work has suffered since he went digital. Too much color which is not his forte.

    Indeed Hasselblad 501 and Pentax 67 for him. He was a master with B&W film, seems he is struggling a little with that digital hasselblad...

    Mario Testino used one for most of his career. Not sure if he went totally digital, looking at his style he might be:wink:
