Wet Plate Collodion Photographs
Chances are you never heard of these. But you may know of them.
This isn't vintage photography, its antique! Commonly known as tintypes, I use the 160 year-old process to create photographs on metal and glass with real silver. Each one is completely handmade and unique. You cannot make copies and each one takes about 15 minutes to do.
I am also available to take wedding tintypes on-location at your wedding.
Contact me for pricing and special collections.
Its a finicky process that I find the true beauty, is in the errors. Because they take so long, you have to really plan and visualize the photograph long before you take them.
Because of this, they have purpose.
I am fascinated by the history and my connection to it.
I have several mid 1800's lenses and cameras that help me create these truly unique photographs that are as authentic as you. Let's create a handmade photograph that will outlive you and be something you can pass down to your grandchildren.
