what is wet plate collodion?

Wet plate collodion, or wet plate for short, is a beautiful, slow and laborious photographic technique from the 1850s invented by an English gentleman Frederick Scott Archer. Back then, it was a revolution. Thanks to the collodion process photography became much faster, less dangerous to make, and cheaper, which made it much more accessible to people than the few earlier techniques it replaced.

We stumbled upon this photo studio by accident, and we were not going to have a photo session. But the photographer was very welcoming and described the process thoroughly, so we decided that we need this kind of photo. I think this is a unique place, because the photographer uses original technology from 19th century, almost everything is handmade. During the process, he described every step, and this was like additional excursion, so the cost is 100% justified. And, of course, we got a great photo!

I can't recommend this experience highly enough. It was awesome! Had a great time with Honza. He explained the whole process to us and involved us in each step. It's magic! He's got a great eye and took stunning photos of myself and my partner. The plates are unique and beautiful.

If you find yourself in Prague for any reason at all and are looking for something original to do I highly recommend spending an hour or so with this wonderful photographer and artist and having your portrait taken with this wonderful, very different Tinotype process. The end result is an image on a metal plate that is a unique and beautiful object in itself. Honza is a fascinating, gentle person who will involve you in the whole process including the darkroom and processing of the image. He has a lovely little studio in a very nice part of town on the way up to the castle. We also had portraits of our children taken that were absolutely stunning and beautifully captured a moment in their lives that will be treasured for generations to come.
Amazing photoartist!

A different and unique experience, a real record and much more exciting than any souvenir youill buy at stores! warmly recommended. You should coordinate in advance. We arrived uncoordinated and luckily he was in the area. Suitable for photography enthusiasts but not only:) I came with my partner and it was an exciting experience! Will suit for all types of groups, families couples or good friends 🙂

Very talented artist who makes you think not only about the way the photography arises, but also about the meaning hidden in visual aspects of photo art. His personal approach gives the session unexpected frame. I´m convinced, he will have very successful future. Highly recommended.
