    Does anyone know of a good pro portrait photographer in Vancouver or Nanaimo?

    I always liked Don MacGregor's work:

    I don't know what sort of workflow he uses now, but a long time ago I used to do proof prints for him, and his negatives at that time were great to work from.

    Too bad you just missed Callow, although those crazy cross processed colours would make any portrait look like it was painted by Dali!

    Toronto portrait photographer David Beckett makes regular trips west for his Vancouver clients. Black & white medium format and a masterful printer.

    If it's really Nanaimo you're interested in, Sly is there and may know someone or possibly does portraits herself. Also, Victoria is only an hour away from Nanaimo, Vancouver much further.

    Did Callow escape from Vancouver?

    You must be traveling out of range, Cheryl, 'cause I been emailing for a week, trying to give you some work. Thought I'd try a public plea.

    Charley, thanks for the post here! What is your e-mail address? I'll send you a note, while I check me e-mail and find out what's going on. Can you tell me which address you sent to? I have a few that all forward into one, so it would help to know which one you're trying.

    Apologies for the difficulties.

    - CJ

    Would an experienced pro from Vancouver Island do, who only shoots film? (near Nanaimo)
