    A great loss...Peter and Alice became friends when Ted spent the day at their home to prepare an article in honor of Peter's 90th birthday a few years ago. Both bright, funny, and sensitive people, and the standing joke was how hard Alice tried to get Peter to slow down, and never quite succeeded.

    They routinely fed the wildlife that hung out around their home...I'll be making a donation in his memory to an organization that supports that part of their life together.

    I have owned one of his cameras for 25 years and have always have recommended them. I am not a great fan of glamour photography, but I admire Peter's dedication and talent. RIP

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    what sad news. i hope he is making great cameras and images " upstairs "

    i was lucky enough to speak with mr gowland on the telephone several years ago.
    i had found one of his twin lens 4x5 cameras on ebay and it needed some work to bring
    it back to life. i called one saturday and we chatted for a long time. he had all the lenses
    and parts that i would need to refurbish the camera or if i wanted, he said he could do it for me ...

    he was such a nice guy ...
    silver magnets, trickle tanks sold
    artwork often times sold for charity
    PM me for details

    This is very interesting. A long time back, I was shooting a lot of aerial, and needed a specialized camera for something I was doing, so I called Peter. He had not made an aerial camera, or at least not one that would work for me, but as we spoke, I could hear his mind working on the various design problems that would be involved in making one. I went on to other things and never followed up on it.

    As I recall, I was looking for one that used roll film, and the issue of the self capping shutter was a big part of our conversation. Wish I had left him my phone number! It's fun to see the images of what he did with it, but it would be more fun to have one.

    As an independent he was a genuine innovator and an inspiration to all, I'm not a glamor photographer but I can admire what he accomplished in his lifetime.
