Photogravure Workshop Results

Tyler Craft, Langkofel, 2012

Tyler Craft was introduced to photogravure when he volunteered to program this site.  He has since become a savvy collector and now has made a photogravure of his own. Tyler is a highly sought-after programmer. His interest in photography is recent, and it is a hobby.  His (very thoughtful) wife gave him a photogravure workshop with Paul Taylor at Renaissance Press as a birthday gift last year.  I was floored by the image he produced from his first attempt.  The point is, while this is a very complicated and laborious process, with the right workshop and teacher one can achieve beautiful results with little to no experience.

If you are interested, Paul’s summer workshop schedule and more information can be viewed here.
