I’ll be there making authentic tintypes (on metal) and ambrotypes (on glass) using the wet-plate collodion process – the same process used during the civil war. Each image is a one-of-a-kind original.
You can reserve a specific time to have your picture made on my booking page: https://charlestontintypist.setmore.com/ There is no fee to reserve! – payment is received AFTER you see your picture. But if you have to cancel, please try to let me know!
Location: Bost Grist Mill 4701 Hwy 200 Concord, NC 28025
