    The Tonopah Workshop.
    With Jim Galli and Per Volquartz.

    It will happen again May 2 - 6, 2011

    Witness - and photograph the decaying buildings in Tonopah and Goldfield (the former home of Pat Garret, the sheriff), plus Jim's secret sand dune area and hoo-doo place.
    Photograph inside and outside in the old Tonopah Mining museum, the home of the great silver mining boom around 1900.
    Look at prints, drool over old brass lenses, enjoy the great nothingness of Central Nevada...

    Live and breathe photography for 5 days and evenings, with discussions and presentations at night. - Perhaps after a margarita or two at the local Mexican palace?

    Tonopah is half way between Las Vegas and Reno, close to the backside of Death Valley.

    Price: $169 per person.

    To sign up please email Jim Galli at jim.galli@frontier.com

    Please write TONOPAH TEMPTATION in email header (think about Jim's brass lenses of course)!


    :tongue:


    14 people max...

    Based on my research, good wine cannot be found in Tonopah. I just checked by calendar and the dates are unfortunate, it will be difficult for me to make the royal wedding and Tonopah...must choose...OK, Tonopah it is.

    Mike, participation in a Tonopah workshop might result in the revocation of your artistic license.

    Mike I can't make it to Tonopah this spring, other plans have been made that I didn't know about even though my boss told me several times. Have a great time there and say hello to everyone.

    Wish I could come, if for nothing else than to see how Jim's lens eating car is coming along. But, alas, the timing is all wrong (mine, not the car's - or is it?)
