Cameras, materials and bonhomie will be provided, and you’ll have the chance to work with plates up to 11×14 inches! After a hard day’s work recording the wonders of the natural world on massive tintype plates, you’ll be welcomed back at Camp RayKo with a home-cooked meal beside a cheerful campfire.
