For those who will be attending the conference:
In conjunction with the View Camera Conference (May 20, 21 & 22 at the Springfield Marriott) the Valley Photo Center will host an exhibition of large format photography. The “Western New England Large Format Photography/View Camera Exhibition” will have photographs from the WNELFP members along with images from the New England Large Format Collective.
A sample of photographers presenting their work is Bruce Barlow, Richard Ritter, Ron Rosenstock, Ted Harris, Andrew Held, Paul Wainwright, Steve Sherman, Jack Holowitz, Bob Hallock, Peter Schrager (peters), some guy named gene Laford (??) and many others.
There will be a reception Saturday evening May 21 from 5:00 to 8:00 pm at the Valley Photo Center.
Hours for the exhibition are: Friday and Saturday May 20 & 21, 11:00am to 4:00pm and Sunday May 22 from 11:00 am to 2:00pm.
The View Camera Conference will have a trade show of many large format products by major companies and presentations by many national and international photographers, along with portfolio reviews and other events. For more information on the conference, please visit www.viewcamera.com
The Springfield Marriott is located in the southwest corner of Tower Square. The Valley Photo Center is in the northeast corner of Tower Square, ground floor.
I hope to meet some APUG members at this event.
I'll be there one day - probably Saturday for the trade show and to see the exhibition. I want to learn more about LF photography.
I'll be coming in from the left coast. I'll be staying at the Marriot.
I'm curious what the story is with the outing on Friday. Does anyone
know the particulars:
Where it's going
When it will end
Is it on rain or shine ( love that New England Weather)
Thanks in advance for any info anyone may have.
Terry-I believe the outing will be in the local Springfield area. I'm assuming it's architectural subject as there is alot of good stuff locally. How-probably a couple of hours-at least? See you there
I think they will have info on several choices to go out to shoot. If I am correct, you meet at 9:00 am at a certain booth to gather.
I will find out more info this weekend.
Thanks for the feedback folks.
I will be off line next week - major plan being to cruise the Maine coast ( weather permiting ).
I will just play it by ear on the Friday thing - see you all there.
It would be good to put faces to sign on names. If anyone is organized enough to put a eyeball to eyeball together leave word somewhere. At other
conferences that I go to there is usually a message board near the exhibits or workshops.
Even if I don't realize it at the time - I'll see you all there.
I'm planning to attend. I hope to put some faces with the names...
If you are still there on Saturday, go to the exhibition reception at the Valley Photo Center (5 - 8pm) it is located in the same complex - Tower Square - as the Marriott. I will be there, probably running around like crazy.
Actually it would be great if all APUG'ers in attendence could meet at the reception. Just ask one of the VPC people for gene... I'm almost infamous! ;)
I'm unable to make the conference, but I am hoping to make it by for the exhibition reception. See you there!
Sunday for me, hopefully with a couple of more New Hampshire LFers
