he collodion process was the dominant method of image making from 1850’s until the late 19th century. Today, long forgotten, it is a technique that very few people have heard about and rarely have had a chance to experience. Bring our exquisite photobooth to your wedding, private party, or company event and spice up the atmosphere by taking your guests on a cruise back in time to the days of victorian photography.

 

Give your guests an occasion to witness this magical process – step out from the digital world for a moment and have the unique chance to be immortalised in silver.

Each photograph is created by hand and processed immediately in front of the guest. Due to its analog nature, the process is rather slow but with the help of our assistants, we can shoot up to 10 people per hour. For larger events, we often suggest making a lottery, providing additional excitement by giving only a few lucky ones the chance to be drawn from the crowd and experiencing victorian photography.

 

We can adapt our service to almost any indoor and outdoor conditions. Our photobooth usually fits in a space of around 8-10 sq. meters. After the event, all photographs are taken to our atelier to receive a protective layer of varnish. Signed and packaged, they are delivered to the guests or available for pickup.

I love the idea! Let's discuss the details.

an artifact to become your family heirloom.

rowsing through your phone you will find countless snapshots. They may bring precious memories, but have you lately printed them out? What is the last time you’ve put a photo on your desk or hung a framed one on your wall? Not the Facebook one – the real wall. Or, the summer trip you did last year and still can’t find the time to sort the few thousands of digital files.

 

With Tintype Berlin you can join the celebration of the tangible value. Book your own portrait session – the most unique experience and acquire a handcrafted, one-of-a-kind silver portrait that will stand the test of time to become your heirloom.

With us you can put away the abstract poses and fake smiles and trade them in for an honest experience. It’s all about you. You are great the way you are. And don’t mind that little wrinkle, we will not Photoshop it anyways. Nobody’s perfect but these imperfections only bring  authenticity and uniqueness to your portrait. Embrace it. And don’t wait for the perfect moment. It will never come. Do it today…

 

Do you already know what you will do with your portrait? Will you put it on your chimney or hang it over the dinner table? We can help you with that. Will you keep it for yourself or give it to someone precious? We will package it beautifully.

I want to book my session.

reating photographs with the Wet Plate process often resembles building a house of cards. One bad move and everything falls apart. It requires great deal of patience and practice. Frustration is not unfamiliar to many apprentices of this arcane technique. However, with the right approach it can be harnessed quickly. With our experience we can guide you throughout the whole process with confidence and fun.

 

Full 2 Day Workshop

 

At our 2 Day Workshop we will look back at the history and explain “Where Photography Comes From”. We will help you understand the importance and nature of each step of the process. You will smell everything from ether to lavender and learn how to mix the chemicals for best results. You will make your hands dirty practicing all necessary techniques, from cutting the glass through developing the plate to applying the final coat of varnish.

In a small group you will produce several tintypes and ambrotypes. You will apply your new skills indoor, using studio lights, as well as outside with daylight.

 

Basic 1 Day Tutorial

 

We understand that committing to become a real “wetplater” can be overwhelming. Finding the right cameras, chemicals and accessories may seem too much for some of you. Attending our 1 Day Tutorial you will gain general comprehension of the process without going too much into detail.

 

Beside learning about the origins of photography you will have a chance to make a Tintype with your own hands in a controlled environment as well as being photographed and take one of you homeSign up with your partner and you will have a Tintype of each other made by each of you.

I would like to learn the process.
