We are pleased to announce famed photographer and director behind “A Band Called Death” will be in house March 12th from 1:00-5:00 PM making tintype portraits. This one-of-a-kind opportunity only happens for a day, so make sure to swing on through. Each portrait costs $50 each.

Introduced in the mid-19th century, each tintype photograph is individually created by coating, sensitizing, exposing and developing metal plate as the subject sits for the portrait session. Many Civil War era photographs were created with this historic technology, which provides a hauntingly beautiful and permanent image especially suitable for heirloom portraits of individuals, families, and bands.

Jeff Howlett, the Director and Producer of the acclaimed documentary A Band Called Death, has been photographing for many years and for the last several the focus has been on tintype photography. Introduced in the mid-19th century, a tintype is a photograph made by creating a direct positive on a thin metal plate and applying a protective finish. Jeff often travels with Chris Morgan and together they have been photographing tintypes for over 17 years and will gladly bring their mobile tintype studio to your next event or festival.
