Due to lack of an Arizona regional forum and consulting with Ole whether this was related enough to LF equipment, I am posting this here.
I have a friend in Mesa, AZ with an 8x10 camera and apparently what I call 'artist's block', low activity, self-acknowledged.
I had the idea to ask if there are any other 8x10 APUG shooters here in his area, then ask his permission to forward his contact info...that way I'm not asking you folks for any more info than you already have posted on APUG.
I thought if he had a more active LF'er nearby it would inspire him to get more active. He said he's been asked to show how work and he was a bit embarrassed how old some of it was.
I haven't run this by him yet. I thought I'd test the waters here first.
