A retreat for wet plate photographers in an ideal setting. Enjoy working with , sharing ideas , good food and hospitality with like minded collodion artists.Old St. Mary's Hospital in Virginia City Nevada, former workshop setting of Oliver Gagliani ,is a perfect location to practice our craft.The rooms , the building, inside and out, not to mention that it's in the high desert and just minutes away from the picturesque town of old Virginia City, lends itself to a unique photographic experience.

This looks great. I would attend (for sure) if I didn't live so far away. These "pond-jumping" junkets are getting more and more difficult as time goes on (the security checks in London the other day were unreal!).

Thanks Quinn,

We'd love to have you there. This retreat is going to be a unique experience in that the location itself offers many different options for photographs; the rooms alone have different settings ,views of  windows and views through windows. There are ,of course, desert scenes for miles and the old town setting of Virginia City itself. Also there will be  an opportunity to share ideas with other collodion artists.

It sounds like a great opportunity to meet other artists and shoot in a unique location! I definitely wish I could make it, but unfortunately the distance is a bit too much of a barrier for me at this point...Hopefully if its a success you will repeat it again next year (or in the near future)!
