Tintype Portraits & Prints

Historical photographs made in modern times

Kate Lamb is operating one of the only open tintype portrait studio’s in Atlanta, GA.

What’s a tintype you ask? A tintype is a photograph created on metal that develops right before your eyes with a historical charm. Wet plate is the second photographic process ever created back in the 1850’s. They are one of a kind and last a lifetime. They can be gifts for yourself or can be a family heirloom that will last through generations. Today, these metal photographs are available at my Atlanta studio by appointment only. I photograph you and your loved ones, may they be a 4-legged friend or your most beloved person(s). I also travel to businesses and events with my mobile tintype portrait studio all over the country.

I offer two options for tintype portrait sessions. The first option is most popular and highly recommended. These sessions are for 1 portrait and are a short and sweet 30 minutes at my private studio in West Midtown Atlanta. If you are interested in 2 portraits, please book two appointments so that I can allot enough time for a second plate. To book this option, you can book using the calendar below or get in touch via email for weekday availability. 

The second option starts as an hour long portrait session that offers a unique variety of multiple portraits. This allows for more creative opportunities if you’re looking for a separate location or more than 5 people. Please reach out to me via email to set this up. Tintypes require a 2 day processing time after your session and will be mailed to you within 3 days after your session. Each session includes the physical plates and a digital copy of each portrait.

FAQS

• What is it?

A tintype is how they made photos in the 1850s. Today it is directly created using a physical metal plate. It's a 4" x 5" piece of aluminum that I add light sensitive chemicals to which allows me to create your portrait.

• How much?

At the studio: $80/plate - These sessions take about 30 minutes per plate and they include the plate itself, which is shipped to you after a 2 day processing time, and a digital file

On location: $250/hr - Includes multiple plates in a unique location. Tintypes can go anywhere that I can drive to!

• Do you offer gift cards?

Yes! You can purchase one by clicking the Book An Appointment link above which will take you to my store. Then you have the option to receive a digital gift card or have a physical gift card shipped to you.

• What do I wear?

Colors show up differently through this process. Red shows up as black and blue shows up as white. Any words will show up backwards. I ask that you dress in a way that makes you feel good. When you feel good, you look good!

• Do you offer weekday availability?

Yes I do! These appointments are booked via email only as my availability during the week changes often.

• How many people can be in the portrait?

For most tintype appointments I recommend max 2 adults at a time. Children can be added to this as well. Please email me if you would likea portrait with 4 or more people.
