Workshop: Daguerreotype workshop using hot mercury processing

David Burder FRPS, FBIPP, BSc, has one place left on his very special, hands-on, workshop on 6 April in his North London studio. 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 with course members taking away up to three Daguerreotypes made on the day. Stereo Dags will also be demonstrated. This is a rare opportunity to work with a Daguerreotypist.

The cost for the day will be £350. The workshop will take place at David’s studio in North London. Contact for further information and for Workshop booking.

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 RPS Saxby award for 3D imaging.
David is one of only a handful of practising Daguerreoptypists/ lecturers and has 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, which basically re-writes the early history of colour imaging. David has given several “live, hands-on” demonstrations of this  procedure at several RPS events.

As he wrote in The Daguerrian Annual, “in making Daguerreotypes, I have created many smells and met many new friends”.
