POP-UP TINTYPE STUDIO
The first photographers were traveling chemists, vagabonds in "Photographic Vans."
These itinerant shutterbugs travelled by horse and buggy from town to town. They up their mobile studios in town squares and sell tintype portraits to the public. These photographs are so durable many survive to this day. It is in this spirit that the pop-up project exists. Come find us at an event near you.

A BIT OF INFO
A pop-up portrait sitting generally takes 20+ minutes, with the final plate ready within 24 hours.
Dress up. Bring props. Wear a hat if you like. Be dramatic. Tintypes appreciate a certain level of flair.
Avoid wearing too much white or light blue as those tend to blow out.
The depth of field is very shallow, meaning very little of the photograph can be in focus at one time. As a result group sittings are discouraged. Couples are OK, but I like to recommend individual shots regardless.
Each plate is 100% unique, there can only ever be one.
Tintypes are an antique handmade art form using cameras that are more than a century old.
