Simon Riddell

Analogue Artist, Specialising in Wet Plat Collodion Processing

Simon specialises in analogue and alternative forms of photography, and this is his passion. Currently, he's immersed in practising the art of Victorian wet plate photography processing. Invented in the 1850's, the process is still to be rivalled today. ​

He became an artist in 2016, travelling through various analogue and darkroom disciplines. In 2021, he won a global wedding award for his natural portraiture. He also worked closely with Channel 4 on the set of SAS: Who Dares Wins.

He has a bespoke studio and darkroom located at the top of the picturesque Nigg Hill, Ross-Shire, in the Scottish Highlands. The rest of his time is spent in the Isle of Skye, mostly in the mountains.
