Unique artwork, cards & prints
Photography equipment & tuition
Welcome to The Artcasts website, I’m an artist and photographer based in Bucks with over 30 years experience.
I'm fascinated by cameras from the late 1800s to the modern era. I create tintypes (silver based photographs on black metal), ambrotypes (images on glass), film and paper negatives. I also enjoy alternative processes such as cyanotype and lumen printing. When I'm not buying and selling old cameras & lenses (1800-present day) I offer photo re-touching, negative and slide scanning and graphic design services. Brochures, adverts, flyers etc. I can also provide product, sports and portrait photography.
Recently, I have been doing valuations and working on more 'traditional' camera auctions. I am keen to assist anyone would like to learn more about photography, be it digital, 35mm, 120, 4x5 or old Victorian quarter plate bellows cameras. If you are interested in getting off auto on your DSLR, buying a 35mm film camera or want to shoot a 4x5 tintype or just want some very basic camera advice, do please get in touch via the CONTACT page with your requirements. Thank you!
