Tintype Portrait Sessions And Demonstration says
Become an instant classic! Sign-up and have your portrait taken by world-renowned tintype photographer Keliy Anderson-Staley!
Space is limited. Couples and families are welcome!

Held in conjunction with the exhibition "[Hyphen] Americans," this portrait session will demonstrate to audiences the process of making a 19th century wet-plate collodion tintype photograph. Anderson-Staley will set up a photobooth on the premises, using a wooden camera, antique brass lenses, and hand-mixed chemistry to produce photographs on metal. Stop by for a chance to see how some of the first photographers made tintypes!

The process is slow and only a few portraits will be made per hour, those interested in having their portrait made should contact, cmoore@spenational.org to reserve their session.

All sitters will received a digital scan of their image to be used for personal purposes, and their tintype portrait will become part of Anderson-Staley’s ongoing photographic project that has been exhibited in museum and galleries around the country.

All are welcome to watch the photographer at work!
Free and open to the public.


Those interested in making a tintype first hand should signing up for our Tintype Workshop, held on Sunday May 15.
