What you'll do

Discover the magic of wet plate photography as discovered in 1850 and take a unique portrait home with you. Get to know for a short time, you will get a personal tour of our current exhibition in the gallery. We tell you about the creation of the wet plate collodion portraits and you get the insight into each step. A portrait designed by us depicts a person in a unique moment, marked by silver, on a three-dimensional plate, with all its character and personality. We love to tell honest stories, we also like to perpetuate yours. Our Wet Plate Collodion Portraits sessions are a rare opportunity to drop out of time and give yourself and your loved ones a unique, focused picture of who they are as a human being. Come and experience this blend of art and crafting yourself. It will stay with you forever. The photographers Dino Rekanovic & Torsten Wieczorek illuminate under the name "Viennese alchemists". We look forward to giving you an unforgettable memory of Vienna on your journey!

Learn more about Dino

Dino

I have been an artist and photographer for many years now. In addition to my contract jobs, mainly in the advertising industry, I run a photo gallery and often visit art fairs in different countries, where I represent other artists. I take pictures with a very rare photo technique from 1850, which is called wet plate collodion and create fine art prints in my studio. These old portraits have something magical about them. Sitting for such a portrait can be compared to a session with a painter. It creates a unique Portrait that is intended for eternity.

What's included

Food
During our photo-session, we are providing free coffee, tee and fresh fruits.

Our portrait session takes place directly in our photo studio with a darkroom. We share our studio with a coffee shop (coffee and beard) and a photo gallery and this is a special way to get personal guided tours through the current exhibition. You're learning a photo studio that offers modern digital shootings as well as analog artistic workshops.
