I always have been fascinated by photography.
But with the introduction of the digital camera it all became too easy, too predictable …to me.
So I forced myself to go back to the roots of real analog photography.
Not just by making the photograph itself, but by controlling the entire photographic process.

This brought me back to the middle of the 19th century, to the amazing Collodion wet plate process.
And every single day I feel challenged to refine and improve myself.

"Mr Bond......"

Recently Bas Berends and his stepfather Guus Schilling visited my studio.
They were touched by the look of Collodion photography and wanted to know more about it.
Bas is a young but very talented professional photographer http://www.baslab.net/
and Guus loves to play with his guns and rifles (air pressed) for his hobby.

So we sat together and made some plates.

"Guus, alias Mr Bond"
