We are proud to offer workshops in Santa Fe, New Mexico this summer. You do not need to bring any special equipment as we have cameras and plate holders available for students for use during the workshop, along with an impressive collection of brass and modern lenses. You can bring your own camera with plate holder, if you wish.
The workshop is designed to let participants make a lot of plates in a safe environment, as repetition is the best teacher in this wonderful process. We will be making wet plate collodion images both in the studio and the field, and learn to use natural and artificial lighting. We will also discuss chemical mixing and handling, silver bath maintenance, chemical safety, ambrotype vs. tintype. This is a great way to bypass the majority of the hurdles that most self taught collodion shooters inevitably experience.
Come spend a long weekend in Santa Fe with us, make some new friends and grow as a photographer and artist.
*Cancellation Policy: $100 non-refundable fee for cancellation.
**Minimum class size of 3 required, maximum of 6 spots available. In the event we don't meet the minimum class size, refunds will be issued in full.
This promises to be a great time, hope to see some of you there. If you have any questions feel free to call Leigh, Melody and Dana at Bostick & Sullivan toll free 1-877-817-4320, or drop me a PM and I will gladly answer any questions you may have.
Highly recommended. Dana is a great teacher and hoot to be around in general.
