The Tintype Experience

Glens Falls Art tintype studio creates authentic handmade photographs with the same process used during the Civil War. 

Back then, photographers regularly traveled from town to town, making portraits for people. Craig Murphy travels with Glens Falls Art tintype studio to locations in upstate New York bringing you the same wet plate collodion tintype experience.

“My husband and I had our tintype portraits done by Craig earlier this year. Excellent experience, great for anyone with an appreciation for art, photography, history or science. Fascinating to see the images appear through the chemical process. Highly recommended as a great activity for friends or a memorable date idea.”
Anne

What is a tintype?

Wet plate images are created on metal (Tintypes) or glass (Ambrotypes) using a fascinating and sometimes unpredictable process. Collodion portraits from 150 years ago are still viewable today! Steeped in tradition, these heirloom pieces can be passed down through the generations.  Learn about the history and science of these priceless family keepsakes during your portrait session!
