Photography Workshop: Platinum/Palladium Printing Process

A one day workshop on Platinum/Palladium printing will be held at the Studio Art Building of the University of Delware on Saturday, November 5 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

During this one-day, hands-on workshop we will begin with a discussion of the platinum/palladium printing process used in the creation of photographic images included in The Ese’Eja People of the Amazon: Connected by a Thread exhibition in the West Gallery of Old College. Participants will learn how to properly select and edit an image using Photoshop, and create and output a digital inkjet negative. Participants will then be guided through the art of the platinum/palladium printing process from applying the emulsion by hand to exposing and developing their first prints. Led by UD Art & Design Professor Jon Cox and Andrew Bale, Lecturer in Art and Art History, Dickinson College. Intended for a maximum of 10 participants.

Registration required: joncox@udel.edu. Cost $250 – Lunch and all platinum palladium materials are included. 50% deposit required to secure a place in the workshop.
Saturday, November 5, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Studio Art Building, University of Delaware

Andy tells me that most similar programs are three day projects at a cost of about $1500. That makes this a much more affordable introduction to the process for someone who is interested in exploring the concept. A basic knowledge of the processes and procedures will be the reward as well as at least two prints for your portfolio.


I will be judging the photography competition at the West Shore Camera Club on Monday, September 19th. A link to the club website is on my Learning page

Andy Bale Photography Workshop

Longtime friend and excellent photographer and educator Andy Bale will be giving a workshop on documentary photography and the “Art of the Platinum Print” at the Suzanne H. Arnold Gallery on October 10th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Andy will present some of his work in the continuing project entitled “Crossroads Peru”. The images are excellent and something worth viewing no matter what your photographic interests are. Andy’s work in alternative media is also very refined and rather unique in this age of digital image making. This is quality work of the highest order in the fine art of photography.

Andy is a professional photographer in the documentary field and is currently a lecturer in art and art history at Dickinson College.
