Photography is my passionate hobby and when I am not at work as a GP, I can be found creating unique pieces of art with the Wet Plate Collodion process.

‘Wet Plate’ photography was invented in 1851 by Fredrick Scott Archer. It produces a one of a kind image on either a piece of glass or metal, using silver and light. It is a demanding, lengthy and expensive process, however, the final rendered aesthetic is unique.

These archival hand crafted images are made with my home built Mahogany and Brass large format camera.  The process is a labour of love and the amount of personal effort that is put into making these images is actually energy sapping, however, when I look at the photographic plate I have just made all the effort and energy radiates back at me.
