wet plate photography, also known as wet plate collodion was developed in the 1850’s by british scientist Frederick Scot Archer and was one the earliest methods used for photographic capture.

in simple terms it involves coating a glass or metal plate with some rather nasty chemicals then exposing and developing the plate whilst the plate is still wet, hence the name.

for today a few samples of my recent work, i am often creating new works as and when folk visit our studio, if you are interested in your own portrait created in a style of the earliest days of photography then please get in touch.  There is no theme for the image re costume or setting, just whatever portrays the person as themselves.
