Wet Plate Tintype Portraits

Wet plate tintype is a mid-19th century process of printing photographs on metal. Kevin creates authentic tintypes using an antique camera and traditional chemicals and can travel with a portable darkroom. Tintypes are a wonderful look for historic outfits, steampunk, or simply unique portraits. Each plate takes approx. 15 minutes to produce on-site.

Tintypes are $35 per 4x5" plate and $85 per 8x10" plate. Can be combined with a digital photo shoot. Outdoor only, weather permitting.
