Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
David Burder FRPS, FBIPP, BSc, and Terry King, who was made an FRPS back in 1982 will be running a a very special workshop on 21 and 22 September 2012. David G Burder will be running the hands-on daguerreotype part of the workshop while Terry King will lead an exercise in making heliographs using asphalt in the way Nicéphore Niépce made the first extant photograph of the view from his window at Chalon sur Saone in 1826.
Not many people have done this!
David is Director of 3D Images Ltd in London, and holder of a dozen 3D imaging patents. He is a Fellow Of The Royal Photographic Society, and a previous recipient of several RPS awards, including The Saxby award for 3D imaging. Terry has been making alternative process photographs since the early seventies and has many exhibitions and articles on his work published. He founded the Alternative Processes International Symposium.
David is one of only a handful of practising Daguerreoptypists/ lecturers in the world today, David appeared on BBC TV, as well as in in The Guinness book of records, for creating the Worlds largest Daguerreotype. (having first had to build a 2 metre tall camera to house the 24x48 inch plate holder.)
He also created the worlds first 3D Lenticular “Dag”, as well as re-discovering the fabled true colour Daguerreotype process. David has given several “live, hands on” demonstrations of this procedure at several RPS events.
As he wrote in The Daguerrian annual, “in making Daguerreotypess, I have created many smells and met many new friends”.
David will take participants through the many aspects (some safe, some dangerous), of Daguerreotype imaging, the cameras and actual hands-on production of an actual Daguerreotype image. It will be a very interactive experience.
This is a rare opportunity to see a Daguerreotypist at work.
The cost for the two days will be £400. The workshop will take place at Terry’s studio in Richmond. See www.hands-on-pictures .com and http://www.hands-on-pictures.com/page8/page15/page15.html
