Mayhem # 558643
I am a photographer using the 19th century wet plate process. I produce tintypes, ambrotypes and glass negatives. I have been pouring collodion plates for 12 years. In 2005 one of my Civil War Reenactor portraits appeared on the cover of National Geographic Magazine. I’ve done commercial work for various companies including Jack Daniels and my work has appeared in several historical documentaries. I shoot mainly portraits and my fine art work hangs in many private collections.
The wet plate process is very difficult to master but as you can see by my work I have a good handle on the process. I currently live in Southwest Virginia but travel often to Kansas City, MO where I have a wonderfully lit studio to work out of in the Crossroads District. I am on the road a lot shooting on location.
If you think what I do would be beneficial to your portfolio please contact me.
Most of my work is with the 19th century wet plate collodion process, however, I also shoot digital using Canon equipment.
