Default Hello From Yorkshire

Hi All

Where do I start...

I am a keen photographer based near Leeds In West Yorkshire (Although I am from Aberdeen) I have a degree in Photography and worked as a professional for a few years until quitting 2 years ago

My passion for photography is still strong and in fact thats the reason I quit doing it for a living, I was finding that my passion was slowly being drained away from me.

I mainly shoot people but like to experiment in other areas too... headsots being my main forte

I have quite a few cameras currently including, Canon 1D, Canon EOS 3, Mamiya 645 AF, Mamiya RZ67 and various polaroids although I mainly use the RZ with a polaroid back these days

I am now getting into Wetplate Collodian, i have always been fascinated by the look of these plates and can't wait to get stuck into it

My garage is going to be converted into a dark room soon and I will be experimenting heavily with the collodian process

Look forward to gettng into the forums here and see what everyone is doing

I think i have gassed enough now

Steve

Hi Steve. Building a garage darkroom myself as we speak. It will be interesting to hear about the wet plate collodian when it kicks off. Good luck.
