Only two short videos - I remembered a much longer segment from that program being online.

The language barrier and cultural differences are difficult to navigate when dealing with something like this. I'm not sure of all the methodoligies/approaches of "marketing" myself/services in Europe either. Live and learn, huh?
I need help, so if you have access to, or know about facilities for a workshop in your area (or a centralized location in Europe), or are willing to assist in helping me with this, please let me know. It will work out, just new to doing all of this here.
You can stay up with the latest info on my site, www.wetplate.com in the forum section.
OMG! You've cornered both the www.wetplate.com & www.collodion.com domains! Good score!

Germany (Europe) is great. As I said in the other post, it's going to take some assistance to do what I need to do here. Chemistry is not a problem here. I'm brewing a nice big batch this next weekend, kein problem, kein angst.
It's funny you're asking that. I'm headed to Koeln (Cologne) this weekend to pickup some lenses. I'm sure I'll put some up on the forum, I bought a half-dozen nice ones - mostly Petzval style... we'll see. My other life will consist of hitting these flea markets and shops. I'm close to France, it seems between France and Germany, I'll have about anything I want as far as wet plate gear goes.
Morever, I can already see how beautiful the light is here and am VERY excited to start making plates!! Soon, very soon!

I thought so, too, but after speaking with kerik and zebrahead, it seems much more accessible than I first thought.

The time is actually the worst for me right now. I'm majoring in cinematography and am Director of Photography on two separate short films at one time right now. There are weekends where I shoot two 20-hour days in a row:o

He has a new book out taking you from the raw materials to the finished product... ambrotype, collodian negative or tintype. It is well done and has good illustrations. You have to contact Quinn to purchase it. It is what he has been using as a syllabus for his workshops and filled out to make the full book.
If you are looking for more info on the wetplate process Quinn is a good source.
