Eddie Gunks has been a photographer most all his life. He began as a child using his father’s canon AE-1. Eddie’s photography seems to be going back in time. When most photographers were moving to digital, Eddie has been going in the opposite direction. Not only does he use film but most of his cameras do not even use batteries. Then he discovered wet plate collodion photography. This photography technique discovered in 1851 and was used until the mid 1880s.

Eddie primarily uses large format cameras to take landscape, portrait, and wedding photos. He uses cameras that produce negatives up to 11x14 inches.

Eddie’s photography has taken him on adventures around the world on 5 different continents. He has photographed his way up the 3000 foot granite cliff of El Capitan in Yosemite Valley, the jungles and cities in SE Asia, the Andes and Himalayan Mountains, Europe and South America as well as many areas in North America.
