Good morning!Thanks again for all your efforts. What an amazing group of images!
Special thanks to Dennis Ducklow for his thoughtful comments and critique.
Thanks again for your support of the club themes.
Here are the images that received special recognition last night.
Currently, I am in possession of some exquisite camera Leica equipment that was my late father-in-laws’ pride and joy. I was thinking, perhaps, if you feel it’s appropriate, would you be willing to please pass it along to your camera members?
We discussed it as a family and feel that someone of a better caliber could use it to it’s full potential. I took it Kerrisdale store for an proper evaluation and a Leica expert gave me a fair estimate.
My father-in-law was big on capturing moments, and keeping these memories with elaborate photos. He was the one who found those poignant moments with just a click, and now because of his passion allows us to go back and revisit them at any time. He was the one who tried to photograph every second and hold on to the poignant moment that we all enjoy today.
We miss our dedicated family photographer!!

Below is an itemized list of pictures and pricing. We would prefer to sell as a package and are open to some fair negotiation.
Serious and reasonable offers only please.
M9 Leica Digital Camera:
Leica M9 black paint model catalogue number 10704 serial number 4203164 manufactured in 2011-2012, about 31,339+ were manufactured. Good news is that it was in the late stages of the model life and these last few M9 bodies didn’t suffer from the CCD corrosion/ cracking issue. $5000
This full frame, compact, well made precision instrument makes the best of beautiful light when used with a Leica lens. Cosmetically, it is in pristine condition and there is no need for refurbishing. The rangefinder is accurate and the shutter release and metering are excellent. This camera includes a carrying case, an M8 optional hand grip, M9 bottom casing, and mini tripod.
Shutter Count: 332
**Please note: The owner took very good care of this equipment. In fact, it was barely used. He has since passed away.
– Lens Elmarit 24mm f2.8 Asph coded serial 40362552, $2400
– Lens Summilux 35mm f1.4 coded serial 4062626, $5200

– Lens Apo Summieren 75mm f2 coded serial 3995536, $4000
The lenses are clean and clear with no haze, no separation, and no fungus. Cosmetically, they are in excellent condition with no dings, dents nor scratches. The focus and diaphragm are fully functional and have a perfect feel and ease of use, with smooth transition. No visible dust or oil.
I would be happy to send photos to those who are interested.
Full package, camera with lenses: $18,700
It is worth repeating that this owner purchased everything new but barely made use of any of the equipment, thus making this M9 camera and lens package truly a rare find!

How are you?
I have finally scheduled my two Vancouver Street Photography Workshops for 2019:
The workshops will be held from June 14th to 16th and from August 9th to 11th.
These workshops are usually $695 CAD, with an early bird discount of $100 that is available until January 31st, 2019 (bringing it down to $595).
I would like to offer an additional $100 off for all members of your club or organization, bringing the price down to $495 for your members until January 31st, 2019.
If this is something that you feel would be of value to your membership please pass it on. My workshops usually sell out, so I wanted to get these discounts out to all of the groups that I work with first.
I hope everyone is doing well!

Hi Friends, I’m still enjoying our memories of Barkerville. And, I have to tell you, when people ask me about how it went, I either show them our book or the 10 pictures from each of you that we shared on our last night. The response is incredible, people pause, study the images, and take their time to think about each one and then respond thoughtfully. Your images really do have impact. Shortly after our workshop, I made a presentation to Lois’ club on making double exposures. I showed many of your images from our last night and the response was the same. People are amazed.
And just today, Bea’s partner Detlef wrote on Facebook, “My wife Bea attended 2 of Dennis Ducklow and Chris Harris’ creative workshops and walked away with absolute excitement that re-ignited her passion for photography.”
Chris and I are so grateful for your responses to the workshops and for the images you are making. We feel privileged to be part of something very exciting.
Attached is a pdf that tells about our workshop offerings for 2019. Included at the end is the story of our Barkerville workshop, written by my daughter, Zoë. Have a look.
We’d really appreciate it if you would help us share the word about next year. Please forward this to your clubs, your friends, and anyone who might be interested. Unfortunately, the Gabriola workshop is full but the others still have spaces. And if you haven’t already, check out our newly updated website. Thanks very much. Keep shooting. Stay in touch.
