Re: Alternative Photography in the Digital Age

Dear Edward,

I don't think it would be too ambitious to try and organise an international event on this - after all one RTPS member has previously done so. As I expect you know, Terry King, Randall Webb and myself were sitting together  in a talk at the RTPS quite a few years ago one evening when an old advertising photographer called Steinbock gave a talk on gum bichromate, which started all of us on different paths. It's a story I've told a number of times, but I don't think Terry mentions it on his web site http://www.hands-on-pictures.com/

I have just taken over as President of the Richmond and Twickenham Photographic Society, which is about to celebrate its 120th anniversary

I am a keen alternative photographer indulging in gum, cyanotype and platinum

I do some heavy processing of digital photographs, which I print out in my inkjet printer as large negatives (I can get to A2 and slightly larger)

I then print onto watercolour paper using a light box I've built myself

Can I ask everyone a simple question?

Would there be any interest next year 2010 in a conference or some other "get together" on the topic of "Alternative Photography in the Digital Age"?

If so, what sort of size of an event should I aim for?

What would be the best time of year?

I am keen to try to make it international, am I being too ambitious?

Thank you all in advance
