Dry Plate Photography is Back!

 Dry Plate Photography was developed in the second half of 19th Century as a safer more transportable alternative to Wet Plate Photography. Because of that it became popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and was used for a wide range of applications, including portraiture, landscape photography, and scientific photography. It remained the dominant photographic process until the introduction of roll film in the early 20th century. The process survived on through the 20th century until now because it enchants you with its unique aesthetic qualities, its ability to capture depth and dimension, its softness and subtlety, and its historical significance.

As a photography enthusiast, I know that the process of creating your own images using traditional techniques can be both rewarding and fulfilling. That’s why I would like to share my experience and passion from hand coating thousands and thousands of Dry Plates so far.

This workshop is designed to cater to your specific needs and interests. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced photographer, you’ll benefit from personalized instruction and guidance from myself personaly. I will provide all the necessary materials and equipment for the workshop, so all you need to bring is your curiosity and enthusiasm for Dry Plate Photography & with my help you will leave with fresh knowledge and beautiful Glass/Tintype Plates. As this is a private workshop, the number of attendees is limited to 2 persons, ensuring that you’ll receive personalized attention and support.

To secure your place at the workshop, please get in touch thru phone or email. I’ll also need to know your level of experience in Dry Plate Photography, so that I can tailor the workshop to your needs.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I look forward to sharing this unique experience with you!

Just come back from a private two day workshop with Nejc at Zebra dry plates. Although I have some knowledge of early analogue processes, there is always more you can learn. My time with Nejc was no disappointment, nothing was held back and coating and using my own plates was extremely enlightening. Nejc is a great host and tutor, my only regret was not being able to spend more time with him, but you have to come home sometime! I recommend anyone with interest in older photographic techniques and processes to seek him out.

I had great fun and with Nathans expertise and knowledge learned everything one needs to know about Dry Plate Photography. Beauty and fragile nature of Dry Plates enchanted me to the point that I finally got enough courage to dry and make some on my own! Thank you Nate 🙂

Hat down to Nejc for sharing his expertiese. Its beautiful to see someone with such a passion and dedication for his work. Since I have seen his Youtube videos I had a wish to visit him and his container darkroom one day and was supper happy when he said he is willing to make a private workshop for me. I have spent two super busy and information packed days in the Zebra heqdwuarters had lots of fun and foremost learned sooooo much. Thank you once more and see you in Spain one day!
