    Bob,
    Who is still doing it. Tri color has (I believed) stoped, Titan or Pastel?

    Tri-Color has stopped most from what I hear (not checked directly). Titan and Pastel are both offering color services, only Pastel is still offering B&W. I spoke with Jerry at Pastel. He recently replaced all EK color processes with Fuji - had some difficulties with EK, so far is pleased with Fuji service.

    Portfolio Center was a great school to attend if you were interested in a career in advertising photography. You shot only 4x5, learned how to build props and style all your shots. I was majoring in food photography so styling was a big deal to me. I learned how to put lipstick on the tomatoes and all kinds of "yummy" tricks. It was challenging, but worth the expensive price tag. Thanks for the info on Virgina Highlands. My friends tell me the same thing about traffic and prices.

    Best,

    I think Neil was hitting on several people in the region to teach or work ther in the summer.

    Do you know Craig Tanner?

    I've heard good and bad things about the Portfolio Center. I think a lot of the emphasis is working with digital now which makes sense for commercial work.

    No, I do not know Craig Tanner, but I did have a "Craig" in my photo business class at SCA. The Craig I knew was teaching at Showcase a few years ago. From SCA/PC/PPA I knew Kevin Hyde, Kathy Wolfe, Kevin Ames, Jim DiVitale, Ray Ellis, Gemma Gatti and a few others, but it has been a while since I spoke to any of them. I left the Atlanta area in '99 which was two years after I closed my studio in Marietta for a move to the Miami area. I had my fill of commercial work and we decided on a move for my husbands career which turned out to be a good decision. I miss Atlanta and my friends there. We hope to move back to Georgia within the next few years. "You never know what you got until it's gone" as Joni Mitchell's song says.

    Give me a call (860-267-4617). I've been running E6 for 25 years. Also custom B/W hand processing and printing, and traditional color printing.

    Labs are changing their services all the time, and from what I have heard recently, PhotoPro down in Miami is considering dropping their E6 in 4x5. My own lab Chromatek in Fort Lauderdale seems to be chugging along and their work is good but they are the last left in town that I know of. They still enlarge optically too. I'm wondering if it will ever get to the point that you will have no choice but to send your film to the manufactuer to get it developed. There's got to be some critical point where chemicals will be stopped being produced for distribution.
