We offer in person wooden camera sittings from our Bucktown neighborhood studio in the heart of Chicago. We shoot with a Deardorff studio camera that was made in Chicago in the 1920's. Our sittings are arranged by appointment only, and are available in the following sizes:
Sittings generally take between 1-2 hours depending on the size of the tintypes we are creating. Your sitting price includes your first tintype an a jpg of the image. We offer custom framing of your tintypes as well as silver gelatin prints from your in camera tintypes in sizes ranging from locket size to mural sized prints.
Have you every wanted to buy or build your own tintype camera? Have you ever wanted to learn about how to mix chemicals to make photographs they way they were originally made? Are you interested in DIY tintype cameras and photography? Then reach out, we'd love to hear from you.
