Idaho City-Again! Workshop

Greetings all. Among the many hats I wear, I serve on the board of the Idaho Photographic Workshop, a non-profit established in 1985 “to cultivate an atmosphere for exchange, learning, and creative expansion in the area of photography, and to provide educational opportunities in photography and related fine art forms in the State of Idaho.”

We’ve got a workshop scheduled in historic Idaho City May 20-22, 2005, (for all those folks who won’t be attending the View Camera conference in Springfield). This class is intended to help kick off a state-wide rephotographic survey that will culminate in 2007, the 100th anniversary of the Idaho State Historic Society.

While not specifically a large format class, the subject matter is universal and the instructors are top-notch, full-time educators Kevin Martini Fuller (a master of historical photographic processes, specifically carbon printing and photogravure) and Willie Osterman, the chair of the graduate photography program at Rochester Institute of Technology and an expert of the rephotographic process.

Following are the particulars:
Date: May 20-22, 2005

Registration Deadline: May 1st, 2005

Place: The historic mining town of Idaho City, Idaho (about 30 minutes north of Boise)

Instructors: Kevin Martini Fuller and Willie Osterman

Class size: 24 students

Topic: Classes will include sessions on creativity and portfolio development, building and using a pinhole camera, and producing contemporary views of historic subjects through the re-photographic process.

Cost: $180 for all three days, $150 for Saturday and Sunday only. Price includes continental breakfast on Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning and cafeteria-style dinners Friday and Saturday night. These meals will be scheduled around the workshop activities. In addition, students will prepare their own bag lunches each day from groceries, which Idaho Photographic Workshop will provide.
