We made a few in camera tintypes yesterday with Seattle band, Helms Alee. The band is on tour and stopped by for a few quick tintype portraits. Jen had them photographed and back on the road in lightning speed with a 45 minute shoot.

A favorite tintype that I made while a Glashaus resident in San Diego.
Mother's Day is right around the corner. This year give her something other than flowers and chocolate. Turn her favorite childhood photo of you into a tintype or ambrotype that she will love for a lifetime.
This one of a kind blue plate tintype was created in studio with a 8 x 10" Century Studio camera and reducing back. It is matted and signed by the artist.
Tintype measures 5 x 7"
Matting measures 8 x 10"
We love making tintypes and especially love the opportunity to take wet plate collodion sittings both on location and in our Chicago studio. Here is a tintype that was created on location at Northwestern University in Chicago. The couple were newly engaged and used the tintype as the photograph for their 'save the date' cards. It was a beautiful location for a lovely couple. Here's to their bright future!
Here is a shot of the 'behind the scenes'!
