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 has been a photographer and photo educator for over 40 years, specializing in architectural and landscape photography. His work is represented in prominent galleries and in the collections of major museums across the US.
In the 1970s he lived and photographed for 2 years in upstate New York, creating a body of work published in the book Halcott Center: a Catskill Mountain Valley, with an introduction by Ansel Adams. His other books are a retrospective monograph: Along the Way (with an introduction by Ruth Bernhard), and a Monterey Museum catalogue: Signs Taken for Wonder.
Some other projects he has worked on over the years are “Architecture in the National Parks” (1980s), “Coastside Plant”, a huge construction site in the southwest corner of San Francisco (1990-’93), and for the last 12 years has been documenting the construction of the University of California San Francisco’s Mission Bay Campus. He is based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
