This is my first entry on the Platinum Photo Blog. A platinum photograph is a method of printmaking dating back to the 1880's. It is known as the most archival way to produce a photographic image. Because it is a contact print method, you need to have a negative the size of the image you wish to print. Either with a large format negative, a matrix of negatives, or using an enlarged negative either via the darkroom or digitally. I work with 8x10 and 11x14 inch negative cameras. I photograph architectural subjects, and do portraiture. Both commissioned and also working on a study of Native American peoples.
