Immerse yourself in the world of the early days of photography and let yourself get immortalized in silver and light in a Portrait Session.
What to expect from a portrait session?
A portrait with the wet plate collodion technique is a very special eye-catcher and a unique specimen – either on glass as ambrotype or on black aluminium as a tintype. Every photograph has to be developed on site and therefore I bring my darkroom with me.
The final plate size can be chosen individually from 4×5″ up to 11×14″. Interested?
Usually, we will make around 3-4 plates in 1-1.5 hours. After that, the plates need to dry and get varnished.
The price for a portrait session starts from 180€ for the smallest format. For bigger formats, events or on-location-shootings the price vary because of the increased effort in material and time for preparation and postprocessing.
Yes, you can add the option to receive a high resolution scan of the tintype or ambrotype.
A „Tintype Photo Booth“ can be set up very easily, either outdoors or indoors. For Photo Booth Events, I can pour one 4×5″ plate every 10-15mins, so please consider this if you have a bigger crowd.
Studio lighting is possible at any time.
Of course, I can come to you for a portrait session with a car.
Outdoors, I can make group portraits up to 20 people, indoors I am currently limited to max. 3 people.
No problem, please contact me for the best way for having a voucher or gift card.
Either I can frame it or I’ll help you to find a suitable frame for your plate.
I can not guarantee a good plate of your kid and/or your pet in general, but if you take the risk, I try my best to make it happen – just remember this process can be difficult for both kids and pets. Please, only for outdoor shootings, since I don’t want to use strobes for kids.
