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.

A few weeks ago we got in contact with each other and Marc asked me if i was willing to show him the wet plate process.
Being a huge fan of his work saying yes is a bit of a understatement.....
So for me also it was an extremely interesting day. It's always nice to see and learn how other photographers use the light in a studio.
We made some new appointments so lets see what future may bring....
