New member intro - Peter de Graaff

Postby peterdegraaff » 03 Nov 2013, 08:34

Hi all,

Just a brief note to introduce myself. I live near Shellharbour on the south coast of NSW. My passion for photography has been rediscovered over the last few years after some long periods of illness. I was always very interested in photography as a teenager, but could never really afford it, although I have had a lifelong interest in cameras.

I have been teaching myself large format photography over the last 12 months. I have a Toyo 45CF, some Nikkor lenses, and use both colour and b+w film. My interest is in landscape photography, particularly places/wildernesses devoid of people (which probably says more about my own existential angst), so my kit is set up for day trekking. I also use a variety of other cameras in 35mm and medium format. I develop all my own film.

In the future I plan to develop skills in printing photos and learn alternate processes. Currently I use a hybrid workflow. I post on Flickr and elsewhere. I hope to connect with other large format photographers in Australia through this group.

G'day Peter


Frank Meadow Sutcliffe's photographs are "a bridge that spans the widening gulf of time" (Michael Hiley 1979, 5).
