Wet Plate Collodion

Three years ago I delved into the realm of wet plate collodion photography….and it’s awesome.

The wet plate collodion process is said to have been invented in 1851 and requires the photographic material to be coated, sensitized, exposed and developed within the span of about fifteen minutes. It is worlds apart from using traditional film or digital.

So why bother using a photographic process that is over 150-years old? Because it is really, really cool…..that’s why.

I have many images to share and will be updating this page soon….stay tuned.

Panama City Beach Surf Report

Being landlocked in Tennessee my growing up years I always dreamed of surfing. It only took 11 years after I left Tennessee, but I finally moved to a place I could surf! The first thing I did (after getting married my beautiful bride at St. Andrews State Park) was buy a surfboard. After a couple years, I finally got to the point to where I could sit in the lineup with the surfers I aspired to be as good as. If you are coming to town and want to give surfing a try, check out the surf reports below and see if the waves will be good during your stay. If you would like some recommendations on where to get a board or surf, contact me and I would love to help you out. See you in the lineup!
