    A workshop with Jim Galli and Per Volquartz

    Tonopah is an old mining town located in a part of Nevada, which is wide open and full of photo opportunities!

    Interpretation of a scene, using the zone system, use of equipment, feedback on your personal work (portfolio and prints) and offering information about how to write effective grant proposals are just some of the items covered in this workshop.
    Jim's knowledge of lenses is legendary. Per Volquartz will show you how to analyze and simplify image content of a given location for maximum impact.

    This is great! Please mark me down as a high probability yes! I need to verify my schedule and most importantly get authority from my better half.....it is imperative that PAX is maintained on the home front! BTW, Jim, I look forward to seeking you in Winnemucca over St. Paddy's Day Weekend at the Shoot Out...I will buy you some Cornbeef & Cabbage to celebrate the Holiday! Jon

    Just a bump to the top of the list, as this gets closer. I'm hoping to be there!

    Per and Jim, I am not going to be able to attend as I hoped. The positive side is that my daughter is expecting my first grandchild Thanksgiving Day. Maybe I can attend next year. Best wishes and good light. Jon

    The weather in Tonopah in November...

    Its clear, pristine blue sky, snowing, bitter cold, warm, windy (like last year's one night sand storm), calm (like after last year's sand storm!)

    - will let you know after the workshop!

    We will have a great time in an incredible place...
    If its cold you can always snuggle up to Jim's brass lens collection...

    Actually the weather can swing wildly that time of year. It can be indian summer, or 13 inches of snow. Actually, the snow would make for better pictures. I'll take most anything short of high winds. If the winds are unbearable we'll get real creative about indoor work. Portraits up in the studio with an 11X14 and 18" Hyperion or 22" Petzval. That sort of stuff. Find out who has the keys to the Mizpah and go irritate the ghost up on floor 5? Probably need a Holga for that.
