Wat je gaat doen

Your portrait session will begin with a tour of the studio and darkrooms, and a rundown of how the wet plate collodion process works. Come knowing the kind of portrait you want and with any props you want to use. While we have space to change outfits, it is best if you come dressed and ready to go. Your portrait is a personal endeavor, and while we can assist with art direction it is up to you to know how you want to look.

After your pose is perfected, we will bring you into the darkroom with us as we prepare the metal or glass plate. First, collodion is poured on the plate to coat it. The plate is then put into a bath of silver nitrate at which point it becomes light-sensitive. Once fully sensitized, we will move back to the studio, load the plate into the camera, and use a bright flash to take your portrait. Then it is back to the darkroom where your plate will develop before your eyes.

We ask for 90 minutes of your time so multiple plates can be made. You choose your favorite and can buy the other plates for an additional, nominal fee. Leave with your plate freshly varnished, or have it shipped to you for an additional fee once the varnish is dry.

Tintype portraiture is not a widely practiced type of photography, and Luminaria is one of a handful of places in the country where you can experience it. Our tintypist, Dave, has been working with this process for 10+ years, taking him from Santa Fe to Boston, China, and finally Salt Lake where he started the alternative photography center with partner Christine. She is an SLC native, ready to make you feel at home in this vibrant, eclectic city.

Waar je naartoe gaat

Luminaria is unlike anything you will find anywhere else. It is an alternative photography studio focusing on bridging digital with analog photographic techniques. The process for making tintypes (wet plate collodion) dates back to the 1850s and this is one of a handful of places in the country where you can experience it. We chose Salt Lake City because we love the city and the landscape, and the art community is vibrant and off the beaten path.

Really worth doing! We left with a unique tintype portrait, and the photographer (Dave) was really open to our ideas about what we were after. He made his own suggestions, and he was really easygoing and friendly.

This was one of the most unique experiences I have ever had. David welcomed me with his pup, was immediately engaged and involved me in the process. It felt very collaborative. He patiently answered my raft of questions throughout the process. After working out what I wanted in the portrait, he set up and shot one image. Then into the darkroom. Watching the image come into view was breathtaking to say the least. Felt like alchemy. After considering the developed plate, David took my suggestions, reframed the second shot and we went through the process again. The final image is from another place and time. Thank you so much Dave! Ken (Janine’s husband)

What a fun and magical experience! This was an opportunity to step back in time and participate in a tintype photo session like my great great grandparents might have done. David was great! He showed us all the steps and shared details that gave us a real appreciation for this photographic adventure. Our results are amazing and I would recommend it to friends/family. It felt like a once in a lifetime photo shoot journey. I see my ancestors looking back at me when I look at these tintypes. Thank you, thank you!!

Got this as a birthday gift for my sister and she raved about how great the experience was and how great her tintype turned out. Great experience!

A completely unique experience. We went in knowing little to nothing about the artistic and scientific process and came away with a memory we'll keep forever. We were blown away by the experience and the end product. Don't pass this up.

This was the perfect experience! We loved working with Dave and learning the process. He was super knowledgeable about the entire process and was so friendly. We loved their dog Bandit too!
