Palladium and Platinum Printing
There is nothing quite like the platinum/palladium print. Its rich tonal values and depth make a photograph unlike any other. This workshop explores the process of making amazing prints in platinum and palladium. This is one of the most rewarding historical processes to work with.
During the workshop, you will get a chance to make several platinum prints from your own digital negatives or large format negatives. We will create your digital negatives for you from files you submit before the workshop. This will give you the chance to make
This workshop will cover:
- an introduction to working with alternative processes
- review the digital negative process
- coating and printing palldium/platinum prints
- storage and presentation options for alternative processed prints
In addition to running a studio and working as a full-time photographer and photo educator, I am also a core faculty member of the Photographic Center Northwest in Seattle.
You can also find me hosting my weekly podcast called The Perceptive Photographer which focuses on the challenges and day-to-day aspects of living as a photographer. I am also certified in both Adobe® Lightroom and Photoshop.
Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need to bring?
Each workshop has a different set of needs. Once you register, you will be sent a detailed handout about the workshop. The handout contains details about the workshop content, locations, directions to the studio and complete workshop schedule. It also includes a list of required materials and optional materials.
What about COVID-19?
Keeping everyone in our family and community safe is very important to us at Silly Dog Studios. The workshop will be hosted in my personal studio, and we require that if you are attending a multiple-day in-person workshop that you be fully vaccinated by the start date of the workshop.
We will also do a daily temperature check and have plenty of hand sanitizer and daily sanitization of the common work areas.
We ask that if you are not feeling well or ill that you skip the workshop or one of the days. Please feel free to see our refund policy for additional information.
What is your payment and refund policy?
For most in-person workshops, payments are due in full at the time of registration. Our approach is that your payment for the program is a commitment to participate, just as it is our commitment to provide the best experience possible. It is a commitment on both our parts. So, the short answer is we don’t provide refunds on workshops, classes and courses.
If you need to cancel your reservation with more than 60 days notice, funds paid are transferable to a future workshop space permitting. With less than 60 days until the workshop, there are no refunds or transfers. There are no refunds or transfers for any reason once the event, class or workshop date has begun. We highly suggest that you get trip insurance to reduce your risk.
Do I need to bring my own computer?
Yes. The studio has super high-speed Internet, printers, power and all sorts of crazy darkroom stuff, but the one thing we don't have are computers for you to use. If you really want to attend a workshop, and don't have access to a laptop, please feel free to contact me and I will see if we can figure something out.
Are there any prerequisites for attending a workshop?
For almost all of the workshops there are no prerequisites. In the event a workshop does require some advanced or prior knowledge it will be specifically called out on the workshop registration page. If you are ever concerned about the specific topics or technical requirements for a workshop, please don't hesitate to contact us and we will do our best to answer any of your questions so that you can feel great about your decision to sign up.
Do you offer any discounts?
There is a 10% discount for referrals and 10% for alumni of prior workshops. You can also apply multiple discounts to a single workshop. For example, if you refer two people and have attended a prior workshop, you will receive a discount code that will allow you to take 30% off your registration. If you are an alumni or have referred someone, please contact us prior to your registration and we will give you the necessary code to receive your full discount.
Can I be put on a waitlist?
Absolutely. Life happens and we want to make sure that we can get you in a workshop if at all possible. If the workshop is full, we will take down your name and contact you if a spot becomes available.
Do you offer payment plans?
Most workshops payments are due in full at the time of registration. Some workshops only require a deposit, but most are require the full payments. I do understand that sometimes it makes sense to be able to pay for the cost of a workshop over time. If you want to discuss that as an option, please contact me and we can figure out something that will work for you to be able to attend the workshop.
