Skills to Offer:

I have basic photography skills. I have worked in a black and white darkroom, so I am familiar with processing/developing. I have experience with 35mm and 120mm film. I own a variety of cameras and know how to use mechanisms that are 50 years old. In addition I am a responsible and diligent worker. I can provide plenty of references.

Description of Apprenticeship:

My focus is film photography (but I do respect and appreciate the value of digital). I would like to learn as many skills as I can, including darkroom work. Although I have an affinity for landscape and portrait photography, my main objective is to capture moments of depth and beauty. And this I believe to be the niche of photography in the art world. I am fascinated by how the aura and feel of a photograph is contagious to the viewer. This fascination explains my interest in large scale photography prints, prints that are so big they take up a whole wall in a room. I am interested in using large scale photographs to create a mood in someone's home. Medium and large format cameras provide negatives that excel in this application. My hope is that there is a market for this kind of photography; I would like to learn how a film photographer can get noticed in this digitally dominated field and even profit from their work (if possible, that is).
