There are many, many processes in the world of Wet Plate Collodion photography and at every stage there are potential disasters lying in wait. It’s the exact opposite of iPhoneography but just like iPhoneography it is a means to an end. Great images, great art.

As a small boy in the 70’s I once spent a day out and about shopping with my mum dressed as Dr Who. Well, actually it was Tom Bakers Dr Who. I was probably around 10 or 11. I didn’t know it then but that was my introduction to Cosplay.
Your swaying arms: Deacon Blue One day I can see us walking Arm and arm in sheltered Kelvin Way Talking and tripping and teasing And heading for the best part of the day When your head will fall softly on our pillow No fear will make you cry or turn grey We will wake so […]
I still live on Jocelyn Square, nothing much has really changed
I still think about you, but only when it rains

As well as the black v white solarised nudes i’ve been doing I also had an experiment trying to capture motion. This week I’ll post a series of images from that project.
The latest PIXELS publication is available to buy now. Part of the proceeds will go to a breast cancer charity. I’ve bought some of the previous P1XELS publications and they are really nice. High quality printing and some great artwork inside. Well worth the money. I sent mine as gifts to friends. This is […]
So I have plans for some photoshoots this month. Quite a lot of ideas actually. Of course as is the way with me i wonder whether my ideas are beyond my capabilities. So, in order to make sure I don’t waste a pile of money hiring locations and models I decided to try out some […]
I spent a few hours today trying to find an old image i took in february 2009 with my old DSLR. My wife wanted to use it for some purpose or other. I opened up lightroom for the first time in about 2yrs to try to find it but to no avail. Dug out […]
So nearing the end of the year I am starting to think about plans and projects for the future. Some strange serendipitous stuff has happened these last few days. My wife bought me a couple of books for Christmas. One a book of images by Helmut Newton and the other Annie Leibovitz latest […]

I have been asked in comments section on original post about “the girl who likes hats“, how I took and post processed the images. So this is a very short piece about that. First off. My mum is old and frail and can’t stay standing for long so I had to use a comfortable low […]
