I'm really excited to be returning to the medium which I started with in wet plate photography, glass! Each of these photos is made by coating a glass sheet with a light sensitive silver emulsion and making an image directly on that surface. The photograph appears nearly transparent until held up to something dark and then the image appears. The ambrotypes last for decades and are a beautiful look into your past.
Each session is about an hour including my showing you step by step through the process, the taking of the image and the work in the darkroom where you can see your image come to life. Like the tintype sessions, you'll leave with the physical photograph. These can also be used as negatives to make beautiful photo paper enlargements up to 20x24".
Ambrotype studio sessions are $110 and $300 for 4x5 or 8x10 inch glass plates. Booking a tintype slot will reserve you an appointment and you may pay the upgrade balance in the studio.
Please contact me for rates on the 16x20 sessions.
