About Tintypes

A tintype is the same photographic process as from the mid 1800s. 

(think stinky chemicals, a bit of alchemy, and luck, and a giant camera that requires a tripod so I dont' throw out my back while trying to hold it up.)


What is a tintype? 

Tintypes date back to the Civil War era and involve exposing an image directly onto a metal plate. These days they’re pretty rare – I’m one of only a few people in the country who make them – but they’re absolutely stunning, and each one is unique.
