Simon, Andrew and Yevgeni venture out on their first LFPP outside broadcast. Unfortunately Erik couldn’t get a ticket across the Atlantic so we had to use a naked female shop dummy as an able replacement.
After two previous attempts we arrive at the wonderful imaginarium where Dave eats, sleeps and breathes creative photography.
For part 2 we are mostly in the darkroom where the magic is revealed and the Tintypes of Dave come out pretty darn well.
What a brilliant day we had and both of us are hooked.
Things we chatted about on the show:
Dave works closely with Jeff Perry who has helped him bring his photographic equipment vision to reality and Andrew will be using his 4x5 back and wetplate insert in pt 2
Dave goes out of his way to shop locally where he can for his film and chemical supplies.
RK Photographic is a long established high street retailer originally based in Potters bar, North London they recently relocated to Letchworth.
Kevin Lunham operates Wet Plate Supplies from Ramsey (down the road from Andrew) and is a brilliant place for all you may need for wet plate and your alternative photographic process.
Process Supplies in London – Founded in 1928 PS are one of the oldest photographic supply companies in Great Britain and still run by the Willes family in the same Clerkenwell premises.
Dave Burnett – the guy that shot the 2012 Olympic Games on a Speed Graphic with an Aero Ektar lens and took the photographs that led Dave into LF photography.
Dollies Little Follies make accessories and home décor with very much a quirky twist – perfect for Dave as he brings his vision into reality.
