Tintypes are uniquepermanent, single copy photographs on metal, made in a large format bellows camera using the authentic wet-plate collodion process. 

There's nothing else in photography quite like it. 

Having your tintype done is a special experience: a photo shoot like no other. You'll witness first hand a process dating back 160 years or more. And the pièce de résistance is watching the image emerge from the metal plate before your eyes.  

Have your portrait hand crafted at our Salamanca Arts Centre studio in Hobart, or we'll bring our travelling darkroom to your preferred location. 

Still life and landscape tintypes are also available directly or as part of exhibitions. 

Tasmanian Tintype is run by artist Dr. Phillip England whose practice also embraces film & digital processes - www.phillipengland.com. Phillip is a professional member of the National Association for the Visual Arts.
