Gregg McNeill makes Tintype Portraits just like the Victorians did from the 1850s until the early twentieth century, using a process is called Wetplate Collodion. Your portrait will be made on metal or glass in his pop-up studio and you will watch it appear right before your eyes. Gregg will take you through the process step by step and you’ll walk away with a One of a Kind portrait that will last forever. 

Gift Certificates for Portraits are also available.

  • Small Tintype Portrait (4 x 5”) - £40
  • Medium Tintype Portrait (4¾ x 6½”) - £70
  • Large Tintype Portrait (6½ x 8½”) - £100
  • Salt Prints - £30

Your Small or Medium sized portrait can be mounted on a Victorian inspired Cabinet Card for an additional charge of £10. Festival Pass Holders can enjoy this as a complimentary gift.

Gregg also has hand made photographic prints available, made from his own glass plate negatives, using a printing process invented in 1833 called Salt Printing. These unique images are made one at a time by Gregg in his studio and will make lovely gifts.

Please take a copy of your booking confirmation with you to your photo session. For more information on the process, see this helpful video: Victorian Colour (youtube.com)
