John is having his annual Jamboree at his world renowned Camp Tintype in Dundee NY. The Jamboree is a weekend long gathering of wet plate collodion photographers and tintypists from around the world. 

This is the 17th year John has hosted this event and he typically has 50 or so attendees from all over the world. John gives demonstrations of different wet plate techniques and lectures on the newest trends in the wet plate field including equipment and materials. 
The Jamboree continues to be a free of charge event and all are welcome. To help offset his costs for the event, John has a raffle of wet plate photography related supplies and equipment. 

Attendees typically camp - pitch a tent or drive their RV.  Otherwise there’s plenty of accommodations around Dundee, NY found on AirBnB . Can also look at Watkins Glen, Penn Yan, Hammondsport, and Geneva, as all are close and should have options for lodging.
