My name is Nathan Rutherford. I’m an artisan photographer, specialising in prestigious alternative and traditional analogue photographic arts.
My métiers include Wet Plate Collodion, Silver Gelatin Dry Plate, Celluloid Sheet and Roll Film, and Integral Film in Medium and Large formats.
By employing these distinctive processes I endeavour to create original, one of a kind photographs, that give the method as much reverence as the subject I'm photographing.
My contemporary offering of these learned, tangible disciplines is purposed to produce indelible images destined to stand-out amongst the monopoly of digitally automated pixels in the industry today, highlighting the significance of each and every subject.
This methodical approach emphasises the value of the subject by way of the respected craftsmanship behind the making of the photograph. These methods are the means that define the end result. I'm an independent photographer, working freelance on editorial assignments, personal projects and client commissions.
Based in England, operating out of London and on-location throughout the United Kingdom, my professional career has spanned published editorial and advertising features around Europe, as well as special commissions from across the globe.
