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...

The workshop is being held at Santa Monica College Photography Department on the weekend of October10-11.
Los Angeles Center of Photography, formerly the Julia Dean Photography Workshops is organizing this 2 day weekend of messy, smelly old school photography. Here's a link to LACP!

I am pleased to announce my future workshops at the Harvey Milk Photography Center in San Francisco. The classes will be held on a weekend in January 2016. I will post a link as soon as HMPC publishes their 2016 workshop/class schedule. Here is a link to the Harvey Milk Photo Center: They are one of a handful of places in SF where you can rent darkroom time.

As always, I am available for private tutoring (and commissions) at your studio or my studio.
