    Any LF People in New West Area?

    Hi,

    I'm a recent addition to APUG. I'm an Emily Carr photo grad from the 1980s and would like to meet any large format or traditional film shooters in the area.

    I live in New Westminster (Queensborough). I'm currently restoring an Ansco 8x10 and am hoping to do some POP work and possibly platinum.

    Hope to hear from you,
    Thorney

    Not quite New West., Coquitlam, just across the highway.

    I've was a 4x5 user for a bunch of years, got away from it, and am now back to it with the recent acquisition of a (far more portable) Technika.

    Being somewhat lazy these days, I'm not shooting much, but am finding the Technika has seen me out and shooting more than in the past few years.

    I'm still a silver printer, when I get the time, but have always figured on trying various "alt" processes "later on". So far it still sooner rather than later...

    Do you ever get over to the island?
    I'm Victoria based and use a Toyo 45AII and a Zero 45 pinhole camera. Just love working in 45, but most of the people I know are small camera users.

    Hi Bob and Dave and Doyle.

    Bob, I am from the Island originally (Cowichan Valley) and so the Island is home. I don't get over there much any more though.

    I used to know a photographer named Bob in Victoria - Aristo Skylight studios? Couldn't be you could it??

    Hello,
    I am in Abbotsford and am a 4x5 monorail shooter. I am always looking for more people to go on large format shoots with.

    Hi Thorney, I'm in Vancouver, and am also in the last stages of an Ansco 8x10 restoration. (crusty bellows has been sent down to Western Bellows for a re & re) I'm involved with the photog. program at Langara. I'd be happy to connect with you and others if anyone likes.

    Paddy,

    So we're both restoring the same camera and waiting on Jim for our bellows. Mine is on its way back so any day now I can bolt it back on the camera. Luckily I am just having to clean the wood and not refinish. The brass is being polished by hand but I don't think I'll do the geared rails - I'll clean them up with a toothbrush or something but I don't think they need a polish.

    We'll have to go shooting.
    What lenses do you have? I have a 210 Wide Field Graphic Raptar (New Old Stock never used ) which is an apo that will cover 8x10. I have a 240mm Goerz Dagor that also covers. 305mm and 480mm apo-Nikkors in barrels. I have sets of stops for both and plan to have ND filters put in them so that I can shoot without a shutter. I'm thinking about making an adapter so that my Calumet 400 series mounted lenses could fit the Ansco. Sort of like the Linhof/Cambo setup you see sometimes.

    Do you have woodworking facilities? I need some lensboard work done and don't know anyone. I just take stuff to a machine shop for metal cameras.

    Beau Photo has a camera like ours it is preWWII as it has Agfa-Ansco on it. They have one for renting and another on consignment that is in mint condition with a matching tripod. Not as much satisfaction as having babied one back to health though.

    Cheers,
    Thorney

    Deniz,

    I'm also a former monitor (not the large lizard). Class of '87.
    I've sent you a note via email and hope to get together with the group.
    I shoot 8x10 and 4x5 as well as medium format (Bronica) and 35mm (Rollei, Contax) - and, heresy of heresies a D200 Nikon.

    Hope to hear from.

    Thorney
