this month i am working on a new series of wet plate works for fortingall art in july, more details published soon.
last month saw me working with Jo Cound and Jamie Grant to kick start The Silver Alchemy Collective with our first exhibition event, ‘A Portrait of an Artist’ project for Platform 18. the event ran from 24th to 31st March to showcase creativity across Perthshire and Kinross. silveralchemycollective.co.uk
‘The Art of Photography’ exhibition at Frames Gallery in Perth was open until early march. Primarily an exhibition of the work of Perthshire Photographic Society with guest photographers Simon Jauncey and myself. framesgallery.co.uk
my own works exhibited were a collection of framed wet plate negatives plus some Platinum/Palladium and VanDyke Brown prints.
january 2018 : work in progress this month for exhibitions in feb – Frames Gallery in Perth and march – Platform 18 so my current focus is new wet plates and alternative prints for sale.

december 2017 :
In late November I had some wet plate negatives included in the magnus jackson exhibition in the perth museum and art gallery. since then i been fortunate to have worked with britonnie fletcher, one of the fellow ‘collodionists’ exhibiting work the same event (pure co incidence). i attended a platinum/palladium printing workshop at stills in edinburgh which was excellent so platinum/palladium printing will be my next main project, as soon as funds allow.
alongside fellow analogue photographers jo cound and jamie grant we have successfully reserved a place in next years platform event that showcases creativity across Perthshire. this is a 1 week event in march so we will all be working away in creating works for this event. details to follow soon..
this is traditionally a quiet time of year for paying work and our customer framing so a time to kick back and do some personal work alongside doing a few 1-2-1 training workshops.
we are blessed to live in a stunning part of the world with areas such as rannoch moor and glen coe in easy reach so i am currently planning some wet plate work in a few remote locations – working title is ‘the highlands’ which is awaiting cash, weather and time, same old story !!
and if that is not enough there is always some spare time to take advantage of the scottish highlands scenery and weather for some less alternative photography.
i will be sharing some of this work over the coming months.
