    Someone in the NJ/NYC area for wetplate portraits

    My family usually has an annual potrait taken but this year I would like to try something different, i.e. a nice wetplate photo for the wall. So for any of my fellow Apugers in the area that have the ability, PM me some info and we can start a discussion.

    Thanks all,
    Neil

    A good friend of mine does this... Eddie Gunks, a long time member here.
    Anyone can make a Digital print, but only a photographer can make a photograph.

    I mentioned this to a friend of mine who does outstanding wet plate in NYC, he said he would be interested in doing it. He is very talented and skilled in W/P. Shoot me your info in a PM and I will get it at him. He is no longer involved on the forums.

    I've got a wet-plate studio a block from Penn Station at 263 West 30th and I could shoot even a large group. Gregg may have mentioned me. I can be reached at 917-575-4697. Ambrotype and tintype as large as 20x24.

    Sincerely,

    Ken
