Wet-plate collodion is a beautiful photographic process that has made a remarkable comeback in the past few years. In this hands-on two-day workshop participants will learn the basics of making Wet-Plate Collodion, Ambrotype and Tintype positives, including history, mixing and handling chemistry, exposure and development process, and troubleshooting techniques. Everything needed to make wet plates will be supplied.

About the Instructor: Jeff’s interest in photography started in 1994. While fulfilling his artistic needs with canvas and oils Jeff decided to start photographing subject matter that he wanted to paint. About a year later Jeff developed his first roll of black and white film and since then he has never looked back.  Currently, Jeff works primarily with large format cameras printing in silver, platinum / palladium and wet plate collodion making black glass ambrotypes.  Jeff’s images have appeared in numerous juried venues and institutions including The Center for Fine Art Photography, The Center for Photographic Art, Colorado Photographic Arts Center, Black and White Spider Awards, PX3 Prix de la Photographie Paris, Black and White Magazine, View Camera Magazine, as well as numerous juried art festivals.
