    Master Darkroom class 2009

    The Darkroom Master Class in 2009
    A Private One day Workshop with Per Volquartz

    8:30AM - 7:00 PM now available every day of the week, except Sunday.

    Please schedule your Master Class 45 days in advance.

    Includes Portfolio Review (of your prints and of images on CD), creating expressive prints using one of three Durst enlargers to print YOUR archival silver-bromide print, using water bath development to control highlight densities in your prints, use of selective bleaching, effective toning for print color and archival print stability, proper washing and drying, mounting and matting (we will mount and matte one of your prints using Bainbridge Art Care mount and matte board), and spotting.

    In addition you can have your camera / lens shutters tested electronically for accuracy.

    We will measure D-max and highlight areas on your workshop prints as well as prints in your portfolio (Using a professional Macbeth densitometer).

    Includes all materials, refreshments and a light lunch.

    Now available as a gift certificate!

    Instead of getting your usual shirts and socks for Christmas why not tell your spouse, better half, friends or parents that you really would like to take this workshop, which will enhance the way you look at photographs and the way you make your own expressive prints.

    Cost: $225.00 if purchased as a gift certificate during 2008. (in 2009 the cost will increase to $250.00)

    Use a credit card to purchase this Workshop (through Paypal). Please email printsales (at) volquartz.com for information. Make sure to mark your email MASTER CLASS 2009.

    Hopefully...

    The tuition of this darkroom workshop will be the best way you have ever spent money on photography!

    I would love to come take one of your darkroom work shops. Is this something that's a private thing? I have three things I need to do in LA.
    1. Renew my Swedish passport
    2. Visit fellow APUG member Guillaume Zuili
    3. Take your work shop

    Need to plan this out some time. So I get one full day for $250? Private? Or with others? Any specific dates, or just schedule any day?

    Thanks,

    - Thomas

    In this darkroom class, would we learn how to develop B&W film?

    Thanks!

    I just took this workshop last month and I can't believe what a difference it has made in my printing techniques. Actually, it has made me realize that I didn't really have a technique. It's almost embarrassing how much I didn't know.
    Per is a wonderful & gifted teacher and very patient (he only made me stand in the corner twice - just kidding!). His passion for photography is infectious and you will find yourself not wanting to leave. An extra bonus for me is that I've now been able to print negs, that I thought were unprintable, and have them end up with that famous glow that Per is so expert at accomplishing. I highly recommend this workshop!!!!

    4. Visit your new friend Matthew after the workshop

    I highly recommend Per's instruction...but not his food
