January 5, 2019 PopUp Tintype Studio - Philly/The Halide Project

$150.00 USD

Chris Morgan is bringing his TINTYPE PORTRAIT STUDIO to Philly for 1 night only!!  

January 5 from 4pm till 10pm ...or whenever we stop!

Each 8X10 Tintype is $150.  Each session is scheduled for 30 minutes.  In that time period we will plan and create your original tintype portrait.  Smell the chemicals, wait for the pop of the lights and check out your portrait as it comes up in the fixer bath.  Watch as I varnish the image with a period varnish made of lavender oil, a tree sap, and alcohol.  

You will leave the session with your 8X10 tintype portrait, varnished for protection and matted for framing. If you are in a rush, your image can be picked up at a later date. 

Each Tintype is $150, up to 2 individuals per tintype. Individual or couple poses are considered 1 session.

If you would like multiple tintypes, simply select 2.  (if you would like more than 2, please select the next time slot.  This way we can maintain the schedule.  If you decide the night of the event that one is not enough, no problem, I will be able to accept payment at that time.  

Once booked, all sales are final.  In the event of cancellation due to weather, refunds will be issued.  If the event needs to be rescheduled, the payment will be forwarded to that date.

Each tintype is created especially for you.  With it being a handmade process relying on various chemicals to do their job, each image is unique in it's look, textures, and imperfections.  

Feel free to come by a bit early and check out the process while you wait!  

The POPUP Studio Sessions will be held at The Halide Project, located at The Halide Project, 1627 N. 2nd Street, Philadelphia.

Chris will be giving a Talk/Demo from 12-3pm on that day as well.  Please visit their website, here.
