Giles Clement tintype photography

Giles Clement is a Nashville based photographer specializing in tintype and portraiture.

The cost for a portrait session is $80 which includes your sitting, the original 4×5″ tintype and a digital scan of your image. Each session lasts about 20 minutes and during it we’ll work with you to create a one of a kind tintype photograph. We can fit as many as five people in one image but smaller groups or individuals generally work best. You’ll be able to see your photograph come to life immediately after your session but we will need to process them off site and will have them in the mail to the address you provide below the following week.

The equipment used to create a tintype is ancient, my oldest lens was made in 1849, and the process is one that is beautifully flawed. Please expect minor irregularities from this perfectly imperfect way of stealing a tiny bit of your soul.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask!
