A daguerreotype is a true photographic object; it has weight and presence, each image is entirely one of a kind. Holding a well made daguerreotype is a unique experience, be it a modern image or one created 160 years ago. Using modern materials, and having the accumulated knowledge of the past to aid in their preservation, daguerreotypes I craft today can be safely assumed to last for a number of centuries.
I am pleased to offer workshops in both traditional and Becquerel methods of making daguerreotype images. Workshops are scheduled on one by one basis and prices start at $850 for a one day Becquerel moethod workshop.
Below are examples in three groups of my daguerreotype work and at the very and a short video with brief explanation of the process.
Persons wishing to have their likeness daguerreotyped, are encouraged to get in touch via email listed on contact page. A moderate deposit is required at the time of booking. Prices for plates sealed via modern methods are: $450 for 1/6 plate, $650 for 1/4 plate, $850 for 4x5in. Hand coloring option is also offered. Cases as well as other finishing and presentation materials are available depending on stock and can be reviewed on site.
