New Zealand Society of Genealogists (Dunedin): Wet Plate Photography

Presented by Brian Scadden.

When film was in vogue Brian worked for Sir Peter Jackson at Park Road Post Production in Miramar, Wellington, as Head of Laboratory and Restoration Manager. He now runs his own private business teaching Wet Plate Photography and also works for New Zealand Archives in Wellington one to two days a week.

Brian’s passion is old school craft photography on cameras dating as early as the mid-19th century - some of which he designs and builds himself. These cameras, which can weigh up to 60kgs, predate film - and the images are captured instead on plate glass.

Open invitation to those interested in genealogy and photography.
