Workshops in December 2017 and an anniversary!
It hardly seems possible, but it's been ten years since I gave my first wet plate collodion workshop in Los Angeles (December 2007).

Julia Dean Photo Workshops is now called Los Angeles Center of Photography, and our workshop is now held at Santa Monica College Photo Department. I have three cameras instead of one...I live in Northern California and give workshops in the Bay Area as well! 

And you can still try out a difficult, smelly, messy but fun technology that is over  150 years old. Here's a link to my next workshop in Los Angeles and a few photos from workshops past....

Here's a great interview with a fellow educator, who also was my workshop student a few years ago...There are some folks working in antique photographic processes who almost seem resentful that others are joining their exclusive "club".  I'm going on 8 years of working in the wet-plate collodion process and still get occasional snark from one of those 25 year vets...However, I am really happy to see others not just picking up but mastering pre-film photography. Congratulations, Michelle!

Workshop #1 in San Francisco, Jan. 16-17 2016.

My first San Francisco Wet Plate Collodion workshop was a success, though it was the first time in 8 years of workshops that it rained! So much for shooting in Duboce Park!
We moved the cameras inside and used some strobes in the studio (and did a few 30 second exposures next to the gallery window). Stay tuned for news about my upcoming SF and LA workshops...
