Sleepy Hollow tintypes -Four speak as one


 Four speak as one...

















Tintypes made for TV, in the rain, on the set of the Fox's Sleepy Hollow. For this assignment I used a modern 8x10 camera with a Civil War era lens and precise 1870's formulas for wet plate collodion. These images where used in creating props to be used in episode 109 . If your production needs period photography, I cover 1839 to modern digital photography.

Color photos by Julieanna Moore.
And do Visit my Requiem in Glass at the Cameron Art Museum.

Auction to build new Photo Class room at Penland School



Near and dear to my heart is Penland school of Arts and Crafts. There is an auction coming up
on March 2nd to help fund the new photography studio. If you can't make it to Chapel Hill , you may bid from your home, with this handy absentee bid form. The entire collection can be seen at the sites below. It is an impressive list photographers all with a connection to Penland.


My work in the auction is this view of Clarendon Landing. It was from my Cape Fear River portfolio shown at the Horace Williams House in Chapel Hill in 2012.

Please pass this on to any collector, lover of Penland, lover of photography who might find this of interest .

And if in Wilmington, come see my Greenhouse and The Cameron Art Museum, showing until June and 60 new plates coming this week.
