Tintypes made in Chicago.
Thank you for your interest and investment in my Chicago studio! It has long been my vision to have a neighborhood studio that could invest in the local community. Your investment in my studio keeps tintype alive and thriving in our local community and allows my studio to reinvest in Chicago!
My Bucktown studio is open by appointment, but I also hold open studio days for the neighborhood. Follow my instagram feed for more information on open studio days!
I am happy to arrange a studio session, below are my prices and details on offerings.
Each session includes the sitting, two tintypes and the jpg images of your tintypes (except for mini, jpgs are not offered for mini tintypes)
The two tintypes in your session are two tintypes that are agreed on during the shoot. It is the photographers discretion to re-shoot for expression, we always re-shoot for closed eyes or a chemical stain. Think of the tintypes like metal Polaroids, we watch them appear and give them a thumbs up together!
There are 5 sizing options:
size cost additional tintypes
Mini $200 $50
4x5 $250 $100
5x7 $400 $175
8x10 $600 $300
11x14 $1150 $550
A $200 deposit is required to book your session date, the deposit is applied toward your tintype order.
I book session times in the morning, generally at 10am. I do offer weekend or weekday sessions, please do note that my weekends book quite quickly!
Gift certificates are also available.
