Here are some images from the previous session.


How long does a tintype shooting take?

For this pop-up event, a tintype is done in 20-30 minutes.

Can I take the tintype with me right after the shooting?

No, but I’ll send it to you one week later. After washing and drying the unique photograph needs to be varnished.

I would love to have a plate with my favorite person. Is that possible?

Yes, up to 2 people will fit on one 4×5″ tintype.

Can I make also two plates in one session?

Every (reservable) slot is 30mins. If the time is enough, we can make another plate.

I missed the event, do you plan another one soon?

From time to time I will publish some event infos. But if you want to have an individual photo session, please have a look on this page or contact me for more info.

If you have any questions, please contact me.
