Tintype Gallery Store

I have several categories of images available for purchase, for example: The American Southwest, Cactuses, Maine, and Airplanes.

If you would like a photograph of a particular place, say, a favorite vacation memory, I’m very open to taking commissions!  ;-)

NOTE: I am in the process of adding PayPal buttons, but it’s taking me a while to get everything complete. If you see a tintype you like that doesn’t have a PayPal button, just contact me and we can work it out easily!

You can checkout and pay using the buttons below (you do not need to have a PayPal account) or you can get in touch with me to tell me which one you want, and your framing preference, and you can send me a check if you prefer.

Information

Here’s what you need to know:

  • You are getting the actual tintype, which is a photograph made on a piece of metal (aluminum in this case) in the camera, created and developed on-location. This is how many photographs were made in the second half of the 19th century. Here is more about the tintype process.
  • Each tintype is absolutely one of a kind: even if I made more than one at a given location, each image would be different due to the way the chemicals flow, the light changes, etc.
  • Due to that unique nature, it is possible that there are more than one of a given scene. If that is the case, I will send you scans of other tintypes from the same location for you to select the one you like best.
  • Each tintype is 3 1/2 by 4 1/2 inches.

Framing

Framing is optional, but I do have some strong feelings about it. One of the reasons I make tintypes, aside from it just being fun, is that they are unique and tangible objects. I think that the presentation of them should reflect and preserve that nature of being an object.

I have the tintypes mounted on a thick backing – smaller than the surface of the tintype plate, so that it is hidden behind it – which allows the plate to sit above the background and be presented as a distinct object. All of this is then protected by a piece of glass.

My preferred method of framing results in a frame of about 8 inches by 10 inches. You are welcome to buy a tintype unframed and frame it yourself, too!
