Stanley Hotel Tintype Portraits

Sit for an Authentic 1850's Wet Plate Tintype ::  January 20-21, 2023

Presented by Boulder, Colorado
Tintype Artist P. Cavan Brown

Invented in 1851 by Frederick Scott Archer, wet plate tintypes were the first prominent form of photography. They are called "Wet Plates" because a darkroom is on set and every step must be completed before the chemistry dries out.  Authentic and one-of-a-kind, tintypes have a magical, handmade quality and will last for many generations to come.  Why go home with a T-shirt when you can leave with an Heirloom?
