This project was based on the Wet Plate Collodion process that was invented by Frederick Scott Archer in 1851. See my Blog for more details on this process.

What I like to photograph

I love to photograph portrait, fashion/vintage fashion and music but I can also produce many other styles of photography such as wedding, family portraits, vintage pin-ups, landscape, wetplate collodion photography images or portfolio building.
