The Tintype Studio (www.tintypestudio.net) was conceptualized in the summer of 2010 when four friends, while on a camping trip in Northern Ontario, decided they wanted to work together through the craft of the wet plate collodian process.

The Tintype Studio revisits a historical photographic tradition to create a unique image on a metal surface. They revive this process in its traditional context, the outdoor fair, by offering a fun, participatory, and retro take on the instant photograph. Their tintype portrait service and period-style booth give the public a chance to experience a chapter in the history of photography.

In this Life After Digital talk, perhaps more properly referred to as Life Way Before Digital, members of The Tintype Studio describe their modern-day traveling art practice and the process through which their work is created.
