GUEST SPEAKER: TIM TELKAMP

Tim Telkamp will provide an insightful lecture–and live demonstration–of some of the tools and techniques associated with the early Victorian wet plate (collodion) process.
Tim Telkamp is a photographer, alternate process artist, author and mentor currently living in Central Florida. Wherever life has taken him, from crossing the Arctic Circle to South America and Europe he has gone with camera in hand. His photographs have been published in books, newspapers, and magazines, and he wrote and illustrated “The Place That’s Always with You,” a children’s story set in Central North Carolina that celebrates home and history. In contrast to his historical craftsmanship, he has also been involved in many high-tech designs and engineering projects.
