Large format cameras require a disciplined approach to photography that, by itself, will help you develop a thorough understanding of the medium. Under the tutelage of an instructor the caliber of Mark Citret, you will learn the how the differences of lenses, filters, exposures, and film development can be manipulated to achieve your vision, and how your choices will constrain your results. This is the newest alternative media.
This course is open to both experienced and beginning large format photographers. Cameras and lenses can be rented independently of The Ansel Adams Gallery through organizations such as Calumet.Mark Citret
was born in 1949 in Buffalo, New York, and grew up in San Francisco. His serious involvement with photography began in 1968, and he received both his BA (1973) and MA (1979) from San Francisco State University.
He has worked on several extended photographic projects over the years. From 1973 to 1975 he lived in Halcott Center, New York, a farming valley in the Catskill Mountains. In the mid 80s he began a project with the working title of “Unnatural Wonders,” which is his personal survey of architecture in the national parks. Most recently, he spent four years photographing “Coastside Plant,” a massive construction site in San Francisco. Since 1986, when he moved to his current location, he has been photographing the ever-changing play of ocean and sky from the cliff behind his house.
Mark has taught photography at the University of California, Berkeley Extension since 1982, and the University of California, Santa Cruz Extension since 1988. His work is in many museum, corporate, and private collections, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, New Orleans Museum of Art, the University of Arizona’s Center for Creative Photography, Bank of America, Pacific Bell, and Hewlett Packard.
For the last twenty years he has had an architectural photography business in the San Francisco Bay Area, photographing for architects, builders, and architectural magazines.
