This blog covers some of my endeavors in the field of photography education, in particular, workshops in historical photo processes (tintypes and ambrotypes). Currently I am teaching workshops several times per year in San Francisco and Los Angeles, CA. I am available for private lessons/tutoring at your location or my own studio in the North SF Bay Area.

Coming this fall/winter Wet plate collodion photography workshops in San Francisco and Los Angeles:
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! http://www.lomography.com/magazine/319988-remembering-pain-in-self-portraiture-an-interview-with-michelle-rogers-pritzl
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...
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.
