Wet plate collodion works made in the Chicagoland and on location.
Creating wet plate portraits using a Deardorff studio camera made in Chicago, I utilize a variety of lenses with this piece of photographic history to capture modern portraits of contemporary Chicagoans. I do travel with my set up and am able to create unique one of a kind events for special occasions. All the chemistry, camera modifications, framing and finishing are done by hand. My goals are to create authentic photographic heirlooms that add to your family history, as well as one of a kind events to educate the public on the history and magic of traditional photography.
