Welcome to LundPhotographics!
For over 15 years, we at LundPhotographics have been designing and handcrafting unique, high quality equipment, for wet plate collodion photographers around the world. Our innovative, original designs make the process of wet plate photography reliable and efficient, allowing you to focus your attention on creating spectacular photographs.
When you purchase items from LundPhotographics, what do you get? Well, it goes way beyond just buying a product. You're investing in innovative, unique designs that you won't find anywhere else. Why? Because we think them up right here, and then we make them. This is why we know the product inside and out and can make design changes based on your feedback! Isn't this the way it's supposed to be: quality products, functionally designed with an eye for aesthetics, and field tested by the people who built them? Of course it is!
Turn your creativity lose and invest in the best. Treat yourself to the gear built for collodion photographers by collodion photographers.
We have chemistry! When you're ready to shoot, our chemistry is ready to go! If your order is exclusively chemistry and/or tin we can prioritize these orders and turn them around without delay.
While we generally try to keep hardware items stocked and can usually turn most orders around in a couple of days, sometimes your enthusiastic interest in our products exceeds our ability to keep up! Most of the gear you'll find on our site is designed and hand crafted right here in our shop by Jared or myself, so, depending on what or when you order, it may take us a little longer to fill a particular order. Your patience in this regard is greatly appreciated. Knowing that each and every item is made with care and attention to detail, makes 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!
