Welcome to LundPhotographics!
If you're interested in wet plate collodion, you've come to the right place! We build great products and get them into the hands of amazingly creative people like you. Our innovative and original designs make the process of wet-plate photography reliable and efficient, allowing you to focus your attention on creating spectacular photographs. If you have any questions just let us know, we're always happy to help!
We're here for you! In these strange times of school closures, work from home, and social distancing, what better time to crank up the darkroom, break out the camera, and shoot some collodion. We're producing gear every day and shipping it to folks just like you. Let us help you express this strange and confusing time creatively.
We generally try to keep items stocked and can usually turn most orders around in a couple of days, but sometimes your enthusiastic interest in our products exceeds our ability to keep up! Because most of the gear you'll find on our site is designed and hand crafted right here in our shop by Jared and me, depending on what, or when you order, it may take us a little longer. Your patience is greatly appreciated. Know that each and every item is made with care and attention to detail, making any wait well worthwhile. So, please plan ahead, and feel free to check in anytime! You're part of the family!
Film holder modifications
If you're sending a film holder to be modified, don't forget to include your return address and the dimensions of the opening you would like. Avoid selecting Rite-Way, or wooden framed film holders for modificaton. Instead, select plastic framed film holders with a solid aluminum septum such as Fidelity, Toyo, or Lisco. These are much higher quality and perform significantly better. Thanks!
