I'm offering this on Kodak Endura Metallic paper which is the closest look I can create, to the look of the original half plate Ambrotype. This image was created with the Wet Plate Collodion process (not an app or photoshop trick) on a windy winter afternoon at the cove, just before sunset.

  Greg Eavey shapes fully rippable art one board at a time and is  at http://eaveysurfboards.blogspot.com/  and on Intstagram @eavey_surfboards .

   Print sizes start at 11x14 ($72) and many options are available.

Tintype Portrait Day at the Burgwin Wright House

This 1847 dagurreotype, showing the view of the Burgwin Wright house and Saint James Episcopal Church, is by an unknown artist and is in storage in the Amon Carter Museum of Fort Worth Texas. This is one of the oldest know photographic artifacts of Wilmington .
     This Sunday you will have the opportunity to add to the photographic history of the Burgwin Wright House, by having your very own tintype created in the gardens of the BWH.  The Tintype's known heyday dates from the the mid 1860's thought the 1930s and is your chance "to be in your own art" that is fit for a museum. ( the Cameron Museum of art owns 300 of my Ambrotypes in "The Requiem Glasshouse") (same process as making a tintype but on glass instead of Jappened tin).
    We will collaborate and come up with backgrounds around the gardens and using my 1860's lenses
and Cameras photograph you and your loved ones. The process is called Wet-Plate Collodion because its all done wet and happens before your eyes.
   Contact Christine at the Museum for an appointment. 910 762 4523

If you prefer a more rustic location, I will be set up at the Fort Anderson Brunswick town NC state Historic site on Saturday April 16th. It's a living history event so bring the family to one of the most interesting places on the Cape Fear River.

Who knows, you may see the ghost of "Old Bogey".... The Union decoy ironclad used to expose the Confederate gun positions in January 1865. Come out to Fort Anderson and Jim Mckee will tell you the story as well as many others housed in this collection .
