Victorian Photography Workshop

Travel back in time to learn a Victorian photographic process.

In this class, Gregg McNeill will be showing you how to make an Ambrotype, or positive image, on glass. You will be working with both a Victorian-era camera as well as more a modern one. For this full-day course, you will shoot different sized plates and each participant will go home with several images that they have made.

Places are limited to four for this special hands-on workshop and is not to be missed for those who love photographic techniques, history, or a combination of the two.  Tickets are £180 and all supplies and lunch are provided.  Purchase your tickets via Eventbrite or purchase at the museum to avoid Eventbrite fees.

Gregg McNeill (Darkbox Images) has worked as a film and digital photographer for over 25 years. His passion for photography was reawakened after discovering the 170-year-old Wetplate Collodion process in 2014. Exposing an image onto a glass or metal plate always involves a degree of luck and improbability; because each collodion image is utterly unique and different elements can affect the image. Gregg has several years of experience in teaching others this fascinating photographic technique.
