About the Course
This group provides a community setting for practicing your skills in handmade photo processes including platinum, cyanotype, gum bichromate, etc. The Handmade Photo Group meets on Mondays at Photoworks, for printing, sharing technique, and critique. Members provide all materials. More info: firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
Mac teaches Historic Photo Processes at Photoworks.
These processes include:
gum bichromate, cyanotype, VanDyke, palladium, and carbon printing.
In addition to building the occasional camera, printing frame or other useful photographic gadget, he also creates books and presentation portfolios for his prints.
He is currently working on hand painted cyanotypes.
Mac is inspired by the work of Gertrude Kasebier and Edward Steichen
"I focus on my student’s interests. My classes are less about showing how I make prints and more about helping students make the prints they want to make."
