Policies: Allow a minimum of 15 minutes for making the picture.  If you don’t like your portrait, there is no obligation to purchase it!  I only want 100% satisfied sitters! Payment is expected at the time of making your sitting. You can pick up your varnished tintype in a day or two or I can mail it to you (your choice). A high resolution scan is included (free!)  Cash is preferred, but I also accept credit cards depending on the cellphone reception at the venue. Price includes county and state sales tax. No extra costs.

Tintypes are “old-fashioned” looking photographs made on metal plates entirely by hand using one of the oldest photography processes (wet-plate collodion) which was popular in 1850s – 1880s. Charleston Tintypist uses modern aluminum plates, chemicals and vintage cameras and lenses to create contemporary tintype photographs. The photographs have a unique look and feel which are perfect for history lovers! We know that tintypes can last for over 150 years, so make an appointment to create your family heirloom!
