The Tintype Experience

Glens Falls Art mobile tintype studio creates one of a kind handmade photographs with the same process used during the Civil War. 

Back then, photographers regularly traveled from town to town, making portraits for people. We travel to locations in New York State including Glens Falls, Ballston Spa and the Adirondacks 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.”
