2nd chance! Quinton Gordon -- Modern Analogue: Craftsmanship In The Digital Age

The presentation on November 21st was a success! Since the location capacity was limited to only 15, many members could not participate. Due to the overwhelming demand, Quinton has kindly offered to repeat his presentation.

The description is below.

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.


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.

    Thanks Diana and Quinton for an enjoyable, informative and eye-opening demo! You've left me with lots to mull over. I've been ignoring the analogue side of photography for quite a while and it was good get a look at some of the exciting possibilities you do at Luz.

    Good news: just received a last-minute update from Quinton. The main topic (and therefore the space arrangements in the studio) has been changed to the photogravure and this has freed the space for five extra people, for the total of 20. The seating will still only be available for 15 or so: if you cannot stand for 90 minutes for whatever reason, please let us know once you arrive and we will be happy to allocate a seat for you.

    Look forward to seeing everyone at 7:00pm!

    Apologies that I can't attend - still too sick with the flu.

    Once again I have to bow out at the last minute. Uggh.

    I feel I don't have enough knowledge of photographic processes to benefit from this lecture event. Perhaps a more accomplished photographer would be a better candidate.
    Hope this event is great!

    This is just a reminder:

    1. The attendance limit is 15 people (there is no physical space at Luz for more) and we have 8 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 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 yet another interesting event; I understand that this time both Quinton and Diana will present, and that they will talk, among other techniques, about the tintype.

    Look forward to seeing you there!

    I'd love to attend, however unfortunately I will not be back in Victoria by this date. Looking forward to other events coming up in the near future!

    This was well worth attending. Judging by the numbers registered for the second round, others think so too!
