What part of the country does he frequent? There's supposed to b e a tin type guy at an event coming up in Florida the end of next month. There was a guy doing tin types at Gettysburg but don't remember his name.

Wendell was living in Franklin TN. I used to be on his email list & would get regular updates of his floated images. I have not heard from him in years, nor can I find any reference to him dated after about 2012.
Wendell marched to his own beat. He was dedicated to his craft. Why else would anybody put up with that awful clapped out van of his? I can’t imagine him doing anything else but floating his remarkable images. Unless we hear otherwise, I am afraid he is no longer with us.

He always remembered me by name, cause I'd always come by and speak to him and his assistant. Brought them dinner from our camp quite a few times. He also gave me a free image for my birthday at Before the Breakout campaigner event several years ago.
