While tintype photography has been around for 160 years or so, it certainly qualifies as ‘new and exciting’ around these parts.

There’s a workshop coming up in early September where you can learn about the process, take your own tintype, or even sit for a portrait!


Saturday session – Still lifes – Sept 12 – 10 AM to 4 PM Use our props or bring your own to create a table-top set to photograph.

Sunday Session – Portraits – Sept 13 – 10 AM to 4 PM We’ll take turns sitting for a portrait or use a model. If you have vintage or period clothing bring it along.

Maximum enrollment is six. This process is not well suited for young students.

One thought on “Intro to Tintypes

  1. My daughter would like to have a tin type done on her and her 2 little boys at the Ways Garden if you are going to be there. Lydia is coming up from Chesapeake VA to demonstrate spinning yarn. She saw something about tin types and went nuts. She said shes always wanted to have one done.
