    Wetplate/Tintype Help

    I am dying to learn how to develop wetplate and tintype style pictures. I was wondering if anybody on this forum knows a lot about this style. I was hoping to find great resources on the net as well as find some of the best people to learn from. Id love to take a course to get started, even if it meant traveling.
    So if anybody has any great information for me please let me know.

    Thanks so much!

    On the third page of my Getting Started in Wetplate Collodion Photography article you'll find links to resources including many wetplate practitioners. People such as myself, Bill Schwab, Kerik Kouklis, Mark and France Osterman, Will Dunniway, John Coffer, etc., teach workshops at various times throughout the year. I don't know where in Canada you are located but if you are near to Michigan I might suggest the workshop Bill Schwab and I will be teaching to kick off Bill's 2009 Photostock gathering in mid-June.

    The links page also lists quite a number of current wetplate artists online as well as sources for wetplate chemistry, cameras and other supplies.

    I think there's room for 1 or 2 more.

    workshop

    If you are unable to attend a workshop you can order John Coffer's manual and 3 DVD set. Its about as close to a workshop that you can get without attending one and it covers everything you need to get started (and then some). I spent a few days with John but I still refer to the DVDs at times because it is hard to remember everything that is thrown at you during the course of a three day workshop. Robert

    oh thats a good idea too! Ill take a look for sure.

    edit: I checked out his site and he offers a course close to me. Might be a bit of travel but seems well worth the knowledge and experience. Seems like the only way to apply for the course is via mail? Yikes... hope it gets there in time.

    I actually found your site online a while back and considered it! But I think its further away from me. Im in Ottawa Canada. Johns is about 4 hours away and Philly is almost 8 I think. Having said that, Ive always wanted to try an authentic Philly cheese n steak... could be worth the extra drive!

    John's DVD set helped me a great deal, but I still thought it a good idea to work with someone first and went to Kerik for the hands on. He was excellent. Joe already mentioned the Photostock workshop. Just to throw it out there knowing Ottawa is still a long way, but I am in Detroit and would happily do a 1 on 1 day if you have an interest. It is always good to get another person hooked!
