1452 U.S. Hwy 395 N. #B Gardnerville, NV 89410

Fine art photographer specializing in expertly crafted tintype photos that last 100s of years.

A tintype is not a print, but a one-of-a-kind photograph created on a sheet of metal with pure silver in a chemical technique. Each tintype portrait session begins with a brief consultation. Creating a tintype portrait using this historic wet-plate collodion process means each individual plate is hand-crafted in the darkroom immediately before the photograph is taken, and developed immediately afterwards. It is during this hand-made, bespoke processes that each tintype takes on its own unique character. No two plates are alike!
