Charleston TinTypist

Photographic Artist based in Charleston, South Carolina making authentic handmade tintype portraits using the wetplate collodion process invented in 1851

Battle of Pea Ridge Dec 1-3

I’ll be coming to the 155th Battle of Pea Ridge civil war reenactment in Arkansas as a sutler this year! I’ll be set up on Sutler Row making tintypes on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Tell your friends!

I’ll be making authentic tintypes before your eyes using the wet-plate collodion process – the same process used during the civil war. Each tintype is  a one-of-a-kind original.

You can reserve a specific time to have your picture made at my booking page.
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!

When:  Friday, Saturday & Sunday, December 1 – 3

Sat Battle at 2pm, Sun Battle is at 1pm.  There is a dance on Sat night for reenactors.

Location Address: 17398 Patterson Rd, Pea Ridge, AR 72751

Times: The earliest I can do is after morning colors for reeenactors – until the sun fades.  I pack up earlier on Sunday.

Prices: Tintype prices start at $50 for a quarter-plate. I also have 5″x7″ size for $65.

Admission:  ?  Reenactor registration is $20 after August.  Single day pass for spectators is $10 and a 3-day pass is $22.  Can be purchased online in advance at the official Event Website (reenactor information too):
