Our camera was created based on The American Dream. We want to know what your dreams are and share them through the lens of our camera. The success of our first two trips was due to all the support we received from you through the Internet. We were welcomed into the homes of complete strangers and offered a tremendous amount of from people like you. The Internet has been the force propelling this project forward. Every follower, comment, share and or like have been the greatest contributions we have received. Please continue to help us by spreading the word. I hope you enjoy the Trailer.

Ian Ruhter has just released a short piece about his latest grand project. Mostly known for his snowboard photography, particularly for Forum Snowboard ads, he has been shooting challenging subjects with view cameras for a long time. Its seems fitting that he has moved on to wet-plate work. The first I have seen of his wet-plate work was for this winter’s Foursquare campaign. Some of it is truly spectacular and some of it is a little worn, as what happens when you take on a 200-year-old technique. It makes it hard to find new territory. But, with his latest project, Ruhter, has certainly broken new ground: outfitting a van as a view camera in order to capture massive wet-plate shots of people, landscapes, nature, skateboarding and whatever else captures his imagination, I’m sure. You can follow him at ianruhter.tumblr.com and see his other work on his website, ianruhter.com. I hope he shows his work soon. I would love to see these in person. They must be stunning.
