Create a photographic work of art made of silver and experience having your photo taken over 150 years ago.
Create a photograph made of silver, a picture rendered on metal and an image which is completely unique. Hand made from start to finish. The Tintype Studio use a darkroom process invented by the Victorians combined with state of the art lighting to create one-off, objects of beauty.
Each plate is handmade in the darkroom; it’s carefully coated in collodion and silver nitrate to create a light sensitive plate. The plate is placed in James's Victorian camera and the picture is made using modern flash lights and an exposure of a few seconds.
James Millar (one of only a handful of Tintype practitioners in the UK)and his team Ben Wallace and Heather Tyrrell will be with you for the two hour session. Ben runs the darkroom, crafting the plates, developing and fixing the images whilst James composes the pictures and designs the lighting. Heather art directs and runs the shoots, making the experience unforgettable.
You'll be taken to the on-site dark room and watch your image transform in the fixing bath. This is the perfect couple's experience and is for up to two people.
