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 captured on a daguerreotype 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 tinting is optional and varies in cost depending on amount and variation. Cases as well as other finishing and presentation materials are available depending on stock and can be reviewed on site.
