In the summer of 2017, I decided I wanted to write and release a new edition of Chemical Pictures. It’s been 5 years since I’ve made any changes to my book (2013). I have, or had, a lot to add. Little things as well as big ones.

I wanted to reorganize the book, too. I’ve added the Wet Plate Collodion Negatives and Prints (P.O.P.) book into this release. An entire guide on both variants. It’s 12 chapters of in-depth, personal knowledge and technical experience. The 13th Chapter is my new body of work called, "Ghost Dance, Native American Massacre Sites: Colorado". It's a chapter of the Ghost Dance work I started several years ago. All negatives and P.O.P. prints. This book will indeed be a complete guide to the process and its variants. And it will be my last on this topic. 

After teaching over 1,000 people (from all over the world) this process, I realized that I had more to add to this “learning curve”. Every once in a while, I’ll get an email from someone that says, “Here’s my first successful plate! All due to your book and videos!” That’s what drives me. To know the time I’m spending will be valuable to people that I will never meet or even talk to - that’s powerful! 

Thistle and Fox Jaw - Eastern Plains, Colorado

Limited Edition: The first 300 prints of the book will be numbered #1/300, #2/300, #3/300, etcetera. I want to treat it like a series (editioned) of artwork. Each book will be personalized and signed, by me, for the buyer. Not only will the book be loaded with detailed technical information, but I will also have a body of NEW WORK in the book, work that HAS NOT been published. 

And now we come to cost. The plan is to have the 230-page tome, along with 42 NEW HD VIDEOS, I CALL "CHEMICAL PICTURES VIRTUAL WORKSHOP VIDEO SERIES", available for $130 USD (plus shipping). After the first 300 books are sold, the series will be complete and closed and the book will go on Amazon. Amazon books will not be signed or editioned or contain the 13th Chapter

 Thank you for all of the support over the years (almost 20 now!) - I truly appreciate it. You make it possible for me to do things like this; in the end, I hope it's valuable not only for today but way into the future. Your help has made that happen!

Thank you!
