Personal laptop computers with Photoshop and Quad Tone Rip, coating devices (brushes or rods), papers, chemistry or anything that you would like to try are welcome!
The maximum number of participants is limited to four so there will be plenty of one on one instruction for each individual. Location is at the instructor’s home studio in Broomfield, CO.
Jeff’s interest in photography started in 1994. While fulfilling his artistic needs with canvas and oils Jeff decided to start photographing subject matter that he wanted to paint. About a year later Jeff developed his first roll of black and white film and since then he has never looked back. Currently, Jeff works primarily with large format cameras printing in silver, platinum / palladium and wet plate collodion making black glass ambrotypes.
After immersing himself deeply in the art of platinum / palladium printmaking Jeff has decided to share his knowledge and skills with others to share the beauty of creating this incredible medium. “It goes far beyond the final image, working with this printing process is art in itself and I wish to share this not only with my images but deep within the core of the process”.
Jeff’s images have appeared in numerous juried venues and institutions including The Center for Fine Art Photography, The Center for Photographic Art, Colorado Photographic Arts Center, Black and White Spider Awards, PX3 Prix de la Photographie Paris, Black and White Magazine, View Camera Magazine, as well as numerous juried art festivals.
