TINTYPE PHOTOGRAPHY

There’s something magical about tintypes…

Using a traditional process from the 1850’s, each individual tintype plate is handcrafted from scratch, producing a single, unique portrait rendered in pure, real silver.

Not only is each individual tintype plate an original, a one off, as unique as an oil painting but they are also of heirloom quality, they will last for hundreds of years…

The rendering, sharpness and ethereal quality of the images is truly mesmeric, there is nothing else quite like this.

Guy is one of a handful of people practicing this fascinating, rare and mercurial photographic process.

The tintype plates are prepared, shot and developed within minutes here in Guy’s photographic studio, and you will get to witness the images appear before your very eyes, like magic!

Recently featured by the BBC, Guy’s tintype work has also won 1st place at the International Portrait Photographer of the Year 2022.

This is something truly special, watch the accompanying video to find out more…
