All about us

We are both living history interpreters and photographic artisans based in Northwestern Nevada. Our goals and interest are multi-faceted in that we utilize multiple formats, both within living history and in professional techniques. Our primary format is what is known as wet plate collodion photography although we also utilize film and digital processes as are needed. We are ever expanding our abilities to both learn and teach this wonderful artistic genre.
