About the Process

You are invited to participate in this 1850s technique called Wet Plate Collodion, or more commonly, a tintype. This is the style of photography your great-great grandparents would have experienced.  All of the chemistry used in the process is hand mixed. The chemicals are then used to coat and light-sensitize a metal plate and develop the photograph. Chemistry must remain wet during this process giving the photographer 10-15 minutes to create your one-of-a-kind photo from start to finish. You not only get a genuine tintype experience, but also a family heirloom to be passed on for generations.
