Hand pulled photogravure prints / Workshops for photographers
I believe in art
I believe in the soothing nature of beautiful things
I like making things with my hands and the inherent beauty of hand-pulled photogravure prints
I am a purist
I believe that artists have an important role in society
For me, the act of photographing and the process of making prints is a deliberate, contemplative experience
The process is as much a part of the resulting image as the subject itself

Want to learn to make handmade prints
Study Alt. process photography with Ray Bidegain
Workshops and mentoring are a passion of mine, my focus is on your success
Working with Ray has been a significant moment of change for me. He helped me see a better way for my work be accomplished. Among so many things I learned from him, it was a single observation of his that broke down all the other barriers to my progress. In that way, studying with Ray was a very efficient process as well as a rewarding one. However, Ray’s analysis and teaching went much further. So often, we’re told to “make work about things that have meaning to you”; but realizing this goal can be very difficult. Ray led me to realize and communicate what I cared about in a way that others could better understand. One additional result was that my work improved from a technical perspective, as Ray constructively critiqued my work and opened my eyes to possibilities. Ray took the time I needed, diagnosed my abilities as a photographer, and from there built a process for me to work on. He is an exceptional teacher—of which, a key component is being an exceptional listener—and a master of the art of photography. I will continue to work with Ray and strongly recommend his mentoring and workshops to anyone.
