Photography: A Creative Process

Paul Wainwrightwainwright_portrait_with_camera_color-235x300

Paul Wainwright is a fine art, large-format black & white photographer, who specializes in traditional, wet-process photography. He produces museum-quality prints for exhibition and collection and his portfolio includes interpretive images of landscapes and historic architecture.

Artistic photographs are not “shot” or “taken” – they are created. Paul will discuss his artistic vision, creative processes, and will demonstrate his large-format camera which uses 4″ x 5″ sheet film that is processed in a wet darkroom. You will learn about the steps involved in creating “traditional” photographs and samples of his work will be on display.
