A Tintype Wedding in the Hills of North Carolina

A Wet Plate Collodion photography produces an image called a Tintype. Icy drizzel gave way to sun on this January afternoon. Jennifer and Jons timeless style was a great match for the tintype.
 If you find yourself planning a wedding, or a reunion, at a log cabin in the woods, we should talk.

Tintype Portrait Gallery Day is Coming to Salt Studio/Gallery

 Thank you Trinty Gallery of Raleigh ( for a fun afternoon of timeless portraiture. Rain, sun, overcast , setting sun, gave us revolving conditions all day with babies and dogs... but with the help of my good friend Julieanna, (fig.2) we some how made 20 some unique portraits on a Sunday afternoon.

   Coming this Friday to Wilmington's Salt Gallery/Studio, (a pure photo gallery) I am exhibiting a small collection of prints and plates from the Requiem Glasshouse. Also there will be a number of plates from the river. (Cape Fear that is). It will be a stellar evening of seeing killer photography in Wilmington. See Brownie Harris's 45 year Retrospective at the Wilma Daniels Gallery (if you don't see anything else, see this!) and at Amce Art , see Gary Breece, William Fredrick, Arrow Ross and Barbara Synder in an amazing collection of Vision and content.

   It was said clearly by Chuck Close, that Photography is the easiest medium to be proficient, yet the hardest to have a clear voice. I think Friday night will show you several clear voice/visions all within a few blocks.

 AND don't forget on 9 March you can star in your own art right here at Salt! Tintype portrait day 10-5. Call Kelly at 910.367.5720.

Wet Plate Collodion at the Virginia Highlands Festival

 Through generous support and interest in Abington's culture and art, Cary Street Partners invited me to the Virginia Highlands Festival. I judged a Photography show and lectured on my work in historic processes and demonstrated the Wet Plate Collodion process with the help of my new friend Bruce "Amodel"Large. Who supplied the shots of me at work.

That's Hannah behind the camera, she won the peoples choice award and dang nearly won the show, all at age 14. She's cool.
  Me on the shutter, Bruce looking real, and a modern "Photographic Van" in sunset orange, between us.
 I finished the day with a trail run in the afternoon rain.
 That happens a lot lately.
Visit southwest Virginia if you can.
By the way, its the land of O Winston Link...
