Large Format Photography
(2-Weekend!) Workshop

April 6–7 and April 13–14 / from 9 am to 5 pm each day

Instructor: Scott Stallings

Cost: $365 Members, $425 Non Members

In this unique two-weekend workshop led by Scott Stallings, students will dive into the fine art and technical mastery of large format photography. Large format photography is generally defined as having a film size of 4 x 5 or larger, with the most common sizes being 4 x 5 and 8 x 10. Larger film areas mean the maximum amount of detail and information can be captured.

Most large format cameras can be adjusted to give complete control over focus and perspective, which gives you, the photographer, the ultimate freedom to create. We hope you’ll join us to learn about large format photography, which is the ultimate photographic format.
