Here is the latest art piece from our in house tintype artist, Jen Jansen. This piece is soon to be available in a limited addition print run. If you are interested in this tintype artwork, or more of our one of a kind pieces email us your interest.
Did you know we not only take your digital files and turn them into tintypes, we also arrange custom wet plate collodion tintype and ambrotype sessions from our Chicago studio or on location.
Setting up a custom tintype session with Jen is an experience in stepping back in time! Jen uses original cameras made in Chicago to capture a modern portrait with a vintage piece of photographic equipment. We can also arrange for your tintype portrait session on location for a special setting or event. For more info, send us an email about arranging a wet plate collodion session in 4x5, 5x7, 8x10, and 11x14 sizes.
Here are some plates from a recent session with Chelsea Blasko, the “Designated Adult” and a Partner at Iron Galaxy Studios, wants women and those who feel “othered” to reach for their dreams. She strives to make sure Iron Galaxy welcomes diversity and is a place people can bring their whole selves to work. Chelsea knows that what makes us individual is what makes us special.She loves partnering with and highlighting other professional women who inspire her every day. "Being different is beautiful."
Hands down the best gift is always a sentimental one! We love creating these heirloom tintypes for our clients. The silver that creates the images on your plate will stand the test of time.
We love the Post Office. Does that sound strange?
