Photographing the Landscapes of St. Bernard Parish with the 4x5 group from the New Orleans Photo Alliance / by Zack Smith

As a resident of Chalmette and St. Bernard Parish for the last 2 years, I have enjoyed exploring the land and people out here. As you may know I have been documenting The Battlefield Oak at the National Park here for about 4 months, but there are so many other amazing locations to photograph.

Right now there is a not-so-secret group of Large Format Film photographers that have been training their lenses on the lush landscapes of New Orleans, and recently asked if I would pick out some locations for them for their next shoot. I am honored and have already started scheming on some super secret select spots for the April 3rd early morning outing. If you are interested in coming along - send me an email at 

zack@zacksmith.com

and I'll update you on our spots. You MUST have a 4x5 camera or larger and film ready to go!
