Riccis Vallederes and Jonathan Canlas produce beautiful work...as does Polly Chandler....and Susan Burnstine. I just recently started stocking up on Polaroid Type 55 and some Impossible Project film. People have been digging the type 55. Riccis just bought an 11x14. We discussed film types and he's going with Ilford HP5. I scan most of my 4x5 as opposedto doing darkroom work. Clients think if's cool.

Which portrait on your web site, or in your portfolio, is one of those you cited that your clients will pay 3-5x for? I've asked twice, still waiting for a response. You claimed that your clients pay 3-5x the cost of one of your D800 portraits for a 4x5 film portrait. You won't answer my question by proceed to discuss what OTHER photographers (not you) are doing and what film they are using.

You made a serious claim, now stand up and defend it.
