Large format black and white portraits
Since starting the Dark Silver series, many people have expressed interest in the process and the images, but due to cost and technical concerns I haven’t offered this service to the general public. However, since seeing a renewed interest and appreciation of traditional film photography, I am offering large format black & white film portrait packages on a limited basis.
If you would like to sit for a portrait session with the large format view camera, please contact me with the form below. Sessions are usually limited to the studio due to the size of the camera, but more complex sessions can also be booked for location shoots. Portrait sittings are an involved process, with careful camera set up and lighting, and the creation of a dozen or so exposures. Then each sheet of film is processed by hand in my exclusive darkroom. After reviewing the proofs, final toned enlargements on real fiber paper are printed by hand one at a time to archival standards. Sizes vary from the original negative proportions up to 20×24 inches.
This is a one of a kind portrait session, with heirloom quality prints; complete packages start at $500. Contact me for more information.
