This year's Wet Plate Collodion Portrait Workshops will be held in the Scottish fishing village of Dunbar at McArthur's Store on Cromwell Harbour on the 16th, 23rd, 24th June 2018. Watch the film to see where you'll be spending the day...
The Wet Plate Collodion Portrait Workshops are professionally run and now in their sixth year - they are supported by and subsidised in kind by the local community, Archifringe and Dunbar Civic Week so partcipants pay by donation, which is then gifted to the RNLI and the Dunbar Harbour Trust. We have day long courses available on the 16th, 23rd and 24th June - five places each day and these always sell out quickly.
As the workshop leader, I gift my time and expertise to the community in which I live. For details please email me and I look forward to seeing you on the harbour in June!
I work with film and photography to explore communities undergoing significant transformation and to consider the relationship between individuals and their landscapes. I studied architecture at the Glasgow School of Art where I developed a focused interest in photography and filmmaking: my work is guided by my knowledge, skill and experience as a property professional, the work rooted in people, place, land and heritage.
I am currently artist in residence at Kaunas Photography Gallery, Lithuania, supported by Street Level Photoworks, Glasgow. I am founder of photography platform Documenting Britain and artists' moving image project Filmpoem.
