The Tintype Studio

Conceptualized in the summer of 2010 while on a camping trip in Northern Ontario, four friends decided they wanted to work together on a project that would revisit a chapter in the history of photography.

Their plans soon morphed into The Tintype Studio, a collective that revisits the craft of the wet-plate collodion process and the historical photographic tradition of creating a tintype — a unique image on a metal surface.  The Tintype Studio revives this process in its traditional context, by offering the public a fun and retro take on the instant photograph. The Tintype Studio's portrait service gives the public a chance to take home a piece of history.
