Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
W. W. Winter is a long established photography business in the UK, operating today from its purpose-built studio premises in Midland Road, Derby, which the firm moved into in 1867. The building and contents offer an historical insight into the progression of photography; from total dependency on daylight, the move to early electric lighting, colour film and processing, to present day in which digital photography dominates.
Company MD, Hubert W. King, LBIPP, will be available to reminisce about his career at Winter's beginning in the 1940s and continuing actively in the studio today! Also on site will be artist Debbie Cooper, who is currently working on a project with Winter's extensive archive of glass negatives. Winter's continues to be run as a studio for contemporary portrait photography, and is also renowned for specialist copy and restoration of old photographic images. Available on the day will be; a tour of the premises including the studio and daylight retouching rooms, access to unseen archives (including glass plate negatives, photography equipment and other historical family business treasures), display of images from The Winter Collection, informal talk from owner Hubert King (recipient of long service award from the BIPP). W. W. Winter is a treasure trove of delights for the photographic enthusiast.
