Tintype Studio

Conveniently located in the heart of midtown Manhattan, the Penumbra Foundation is bringing the 19th century practice of wet plate collodion tintype portraiture to the historic New York City photo district, 164 years after its invention.

The studio uses period-authentic methods and equipment, including original cameras and lenses. Each portrait session is about 55 minutes (includes sitting and plate development). Clients receive a contemporary portrait that captures their unique and individual style. Digital scans and print services are also available.

Appointments can be scheduled under "Book Your Session".
