Yosemite Spring Photography

Calvin Bradshaw  (@calvinbradshaw )  

Now in my late 40’s (well OK, very very late 40’s!). I have been an amateur photographer for about 25 years. I have shot a number of weddings, lots and lots of portraits sessions, pets, cars, and landscapes etc.  I just love experimenting with light, and am always learning and seeing new ways to shoot and capture images.  I’m a Canon shooter, and often head over to Ken Rockwell's page for some no-BS advice and inspiration, so it was awesome when i stumbled upon this tour! -- I just had to sign up.

I have an IT outsourcing company in Australia, and live in Brisbane (but travel to Melbourne frequently). 

I am married with 2 sons, 11 and 12 years of age, and have a Golden Retriever ( )

I work hard, so I reward myself with conference trips like this one, and always sneak in some photography!  After this Yosemite trip, i am driving on to Las Vegas for a conference for a few days, then maybe Death Valley, then maybe even back to Yosemite to shoot the lunar rainbows next weekend (

Looking forward to meeting everyone!

Don Gardner:

I am a 73 year old retiree living in Sun City West AZ, which is an area  rich in resources for landscape photographers. I started my photography career in High School using a Sears Tower 6x6 camera and of course the obligatory Speed Graphic for school functions.  

It was great when I got my first Pentax Spotmatic 35mm, which I used many years until Digital arrived. I have owned more digital cameras than I can remember, each better than the last.  Most recently I have purchased a Nikon D810, which I find to be a super Landscape camera, and may be my last digital camera. I can't really see going beyond 36mp, but that's also what I said at 24mp.  

I really love to shoot slide film.  Currently I have a Bronica SQ 6x6, a Fuji G690, the Fuji G617 pictured, and a Chamonix 4x5 with mosty Fuji lenses, and of course a Nikon F4 which mostly stays on the shelf. I shoot Fuji Provia and Velvia as well as Kodak Ektar. Some of my photos can be seen on Flickr, if you do a search for fujifreak, they should come up. 

I promise I will only be shooting digital this weekend, unless I'm asked to drag out one of my film cameras. It might be cool to have a 6x17 panoramic shot of the group with half dome in the background.
