Art is about making a difference, one person at a time. I’m here to teach people how to photograph using a large format camera and hand craft a photograph in a darkroom. This process reinforces the traditional photographic experience and questions our disposable culture of imagery.

Wet Plate Collodion (Tin Types)
Join us for an in-depth workshop on the wet plate collodion photography process. In the 1850s photographers couldn't buy their photo film; they had to make their own. Early photographers invented a process for producing a negative—essentially, making film from scratch—by applying collodion to glass. Wet plate collodion became extremely popular: it was used for portraiture, landscape work, architectural photography and art photography. Today, the 19th-century technique of wet-plate collodion photography, and the tintype process in particular, is undergoing something of a renaissance as digital photography prompts people to explore older analogue methods. Discover the beauty and rewards of large-format darkroom photographic processes. We will explore the technical and aesthetic sides of wet plate collodion using a 4x5 inch view camera, studio strobe lights, and darkroom chemistry to create unique portraits.
