    Hello from New England!

    Thank you so much for this website. I sort of accidentally on purpose discovered it through a friend and I must say that you have one of the more eclectic collections of people and images around. I am most impressed at the talent and knowledge.

    I'm an aging baby boomer from New England who mostly works with equipment made when glass, metal, and leather were not materials to be shunned for their weight. I dub around with my 4x5 Speed Graphic and several lenses, my Rollei TLR and my Rolleiflex SL35 system with some German glass and a handful of older Supertaks that I use with the M-42 adaptor.

    My work is about 50/50 color and B/W; although since coming to a house with no basement my beloved darkroom is now packed mostly in boxes until we get a chance to expand it I've been doing more and more color.

    Architectural and landscape and "found object" still lifes are the most fun for me - I'm still kind of shy around people despite shooting quite a few weddings and similar "events" and two years as a working news photog many years ago...

    I'm currently living in New Hampshire and working in central Massachusetts but have lived and shot all over the east coast and a few places out west...

    Welcome Andy. Always good to see another large format shooter. I've seen some awesome photos from your part of the country and I'm looking forward to seeing some of your work.

    BTW, I am from the opposite side of the country from you; Kaneohe, Hawaii (about 15 miles from Honolulu).

    Welcome Andy!

    Aging boomer??? There is no such thing!!! Aren't we all forever young???
    I love that area of the US! My hubby used to work in Pittsfield (guess where!!) many moons ago & he took me there a couple of years ago. What a beautiful area! My favorite time there is fall, when everything is colorful & the air is crisp! Hope to see some pics!

    This is a great place, I'm sure that you will find a thing or two to interest you!

    Andy,
    As another New Englander, I welcome you to this wonderful site.
    Where abouts in New Hampshire do you live and where do you work. I am originally from a small town in north central Mass and most of my family still lives up that way, so I am very familiar with the area.
    Are you familiar with the Western New England Large Format Photographers group? If you e-mail me, I can send you some info.
    Enjoy your visits to APUG.
