One of the reasons in setting up this site was to provide a forum for contemporary daguerreotypists to discuss the process. As is often the case with good ideas, others come to them at the same time. Jon Lewis from Santa Fe recently set up , so now we are to pool our efforts to establish an active online Daguerreian community. The links on this site for the Forum now redirect to Jon’s forum site. will concentrate on providing resources for the forums – artists work, images of related equipment , links etc.

Such endeavors take much time and effort so my initial shock at a similar forum has given way to relief that there is someone else also at the helm. Charlie Schreiners site ,, broke the ground that we hope to build on with software that automates the organizing of data posted, making it easy to add new daguerreotypists and their work to the websites. I look forward to working with Jon who also has web design experience.

I hope this website to showcase all that is going on in Contemporary Daguerreotypy and with the Forums section, contribute to the genre. Please feel free to contribute images and information, I would like to have a individual page for each modern Daguerreotypist, showing your images and links to any personal websites you have. Also feel free to say what you’d like to see on the website, I will do my best to accommodate everyone. Regards, Alan Bekhuis
