    You might want to check out the book "Simply" by Peter Dombrovskis (West Wind Press, 2006). Great shots of the Tasmanian landscape using a Linhof Technika 4x5.

    Are you in Sydney? Take a trip to Point Light Gallery to see some real life prints! Point Light is a spiritual home for many interested in Large Format and alternative processes.

    B&W - Richard White's work (and recent excellent book) - http://www.richardwhite.com.au - His site doesn't do justice to the quality of the prints

    Colour - Mark Humphries - His book "Wilderness - The essence of a wild land" - published a while ago now. Stunning back country large format colour from Tassi. 4x5, stripped down linhof tech camera.

    Colour - Chris Bell - His book "Primal Places: Tasmania" - I believe all shot on 4x5 also.

    Peter Dobre has photographed pretty much most of SA, he's got a whole bunch of books out. Does 617 count as LF? He's also got an m645 1000s on his gear page no less, not even an AF.

    When I was in both Canberra and Fremantle, in their respective 'local markets' there were galleries of landscape photographers, lots of 617 shots in there (even one of them had a shot of the photographer with his Technorama IIIs). Different guy each time, but same concept. Wherever you are, I'm sure you could find your local 617 guy at your local markets...
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    f/64 and be there.

    Lots of good workshops and supplies. Also an annual large format get together called The Gathering.

    Ken Duncan and Peter Lik etc have a lot to answer for. 617 is really a pretty accessible and impressive format.

    Another plug for Peter Dombrovskis — his postcards, though dated and many with obvious technical flaws, are still available but thinning out.

    There is also Harry Nankin's early work. His coffee-table book, Range Upon Range, published in 1987, has inspired a generation of any format of photographer, but especially those with a love of the high, open spaces and hidden treats of the Alps. Long out of print, your library should have access to one. Even though almost 30 years have past, the beautifully studied images in the book transcend time and moment to transport you to another place. And it's just as well the photography had the right impact on the reader. Unfortunately for Harry, the book was overdue, costs blew out, he lost a battle with the mortgage of his house and a few years later, left LF photography. He has been involved in offbeat and unusual alternative methods of photography using natural light for at least 15 years now.
    “The photographer must determine how he wants the finished print to look before he exposes the negative.
    Before releasing the shutter, he must seek 'the flame of recognition,' a sense that the picture would reveal
    the greater mystery of things...more clearly than the eyes see."
    ~Edward Weston, 1922.
