Simon Riddell

I specialise in analogue and alternative forms of photography, this is my passion.  Currently, I'm immersed in practicing the art of Victorian wet plate photography, invented in 1851 the process is still to be rivalled today.  There are only a small number of people worldwide practicing wet plate.

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


I have a bespoke studio and darkroom located at the top of the picturesque Nigg Hill, Ross-Shire, in the Scottish Highlands.  The rest of my time is spent in the Isle of Skye, where I'm currently immersed in the Skye Collodion Project.


My work has been well published over the years; read more here.
