In addition to the digital Portrait Experience and Headshot Sessions, I offer Tintype Sessions, resulting in one-of a-kind photographs made on metal plates. Each tintype is handmade. Using the wet-plate collodion method invented in the mid-19th century, I create an original, unique, tintype portrait.
The plates are individually prepared by hand in the darkroom (an old bank vault!) and must be exposed and developed within a few minutes. I use an antique camera and lens to create gorgeous softly-focused images.
I enjoy sharing the process and its history with all my clients. You will never forget this amazing experience!
