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.
I currently work with a variety of photographic mediums, using 35mm, medium and large format cameras. I am proficient in digital photography, black and white film photography and Wet Plate Collodion.
‘Wet Plate’ photography is an antiquated Victorian photographic process, invented in 1851 by Fredrick Scott Archer that produces a one of a kind image on either a piece of glass or metal, using silver and light. I make these archival images 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.
