Quinton Gordon Presents -- Modern Analogue: Craftsmanship In The Digital Age

Combining the best of 19th Century photographic processes with the advantages of modern digital technology, Quinton will be making a presentation on the work he and Diana are currently doing with Wet Plate Collodion, Digitally Enlarged Negatives, Platinum Printing, and Non-Toxic Photogravure printing. Join us for an evening that promises to open your eyes to some exciting possibilities for making unique images.

Bio:

Raised in an environment that promoted living a creative life, Quinton completed a degree in Photographic Arts & Technology at Ryerson university. As a photographer, his work has taken him from the arctic regions of Canada and Greenland, to the waters of the Southern Ocean, the Cloud Forests of Central America and beyond, on projects for international publications, corporate, government, and non-governmental clients. His degree provided in-depth training in traditional photographic processes and Quinton continues to work with large format cameras and traditional techniques including, wet plate collodion, platinum printing, and gelatin silver along with explorations into non-toxic photogravure processes. Living a creative life has given him multiple, but compatible identities as an artist, photographer, teacher, printer and maker of fine handmade books, offering the ultimate blend of exploration, travel and time at home working creatively in the studio or darkroom.

Location: Luz Studios in Rock Bay on Hillside Avenue, between Rock Bay Avenue and Bridge Street.

There is limited street parking on Rock Bay and Hillside, as well as about 8 parking spaces on site in front of Luz Studios. If you are taking a bus, Luz is a five-minute walk from Douglas Street (about 15 different bus options) and from Bay Street (Routes 10,14).

Please note that the number of participants is limited to 15. If you have registered but cannot attend, please change you RSVP to NO as soon as possible, so that the wait-listed member has enough time to alter his/her plans and take your space.

    The knowledge and skills Quinton introduced us to really opened my eyes to the possibilities in printing. I found the platinum prints especially stunning!

    I want to do some kind of brain-dump so I can come to know all that Quinton knows.

    Excellent. Quiton is extremely knowlegable and his techniques were new to me so it was a very enjoyable evening.

    The evening was an inspiration. Better prints than I've ever seen before. Made me realise that getting to a good image on screen is only half the journey. Definitely going to follow this through by joining a workshop. Thanks to everyone involved.

    Many thanks to Mikhail for organizing this, and especially to Quinton for opening his studio for us! Very informative, and a lot of great techniques. "Modern analogue" - I like that idea.

    Mike.

    This is just a reminder:

    1. The attendance limit is 15 people (there is no physical space at Luz for more) and we have 13 members on the waitlist. If you have registered but cannot attend, please change your RSVP to NO as soon as possible, so that the wait-listed member has enough time to alter his/her plans and take your space.

    2. If you are on the waitlist, please check your status online before the workshop: there are might be some last-minute cancellations. If you do get the spot but cannot attend, please see above: cancel RSVP so someone else on the waitlist can take your space.

    It is going to be an interesting presentation: we look forward to seeing you there!

      I am not 100% sure I can attend until later today, so rather than make it a last minute cancellation I'll change my RSVP now. Sorry that I will be missing the event.

    • Mikhail

      Thank you for being so kind to fellow members!

  • Caterina S.

    Thanks for that.

    Hi, I'd like to make this. Im on the waitlist. Please let me know if others cancel. Thanks.

    • Mikhail

      Caterina -- the meetup system will do this automatically. When someone cancels RSVP, the first person on the waiting list gets the spot. There should be an automatic email sent almost immediately (if your personal meetup settings do not block the messages). In any case, I suggest checking your status online once in a while, and especially just before the event.
