    Hi, My name is Stefan and I live in Antwerp, Belgium.

    I graduated as a photographer back in 1993.

    Meanwhile I have been maintaining and upgrading my darkroom with items ranging from a Focomat IC to a Cibachrome processor but due to my other great passion, graphic design, I am not constantly active as a photographer.

    I use various formats between Viewmaster and 4x5 inch.
    Recently I worked a lot on reversal developement of black and white film (FP4).

    My great pet project is about making daguerreotypes using the Bequerel technique. At this stage I finished building the equipment but this seems to be a small step compared to actually making images.

    Best regards,

    DimDim

    Greetings Stephan and welcome. I hope you'll post some of your Bequerel technique photos in the gallery when you get going.
