Doug Hanson Tintype photo shoot & Paupers Art Fire Sale

Paupers Art Guild is pleased to announce the return of Photographer Doug Hanson for a 2 day shoot of his amazing Wet Plate Collodian Process Tintypes to coincide with our 1st Annual Art Fire Sale.

On Saturday, August 22 and Sunday, August 23 from 12-5 PM, Doug will be set up in studio to take pictures in 2 sizes. Tintypes will be offered at 4" x 5" for $30 and 8" x 10" (ideal for group or family portraits) for $60. The entire process, from set up and shooting to developing and finishing the Plate takes 20 mins, so we will be taking 3 reservations per hour. Though walk-ins are welcomed, reserved time slots will take precedence, so call or email ahead to reserve your shooting time. Please feel free to bring in your own costuming as well.

During the photo shoot, our walls will be loaded with affordable drawings and paintings from several of our guild artists for your purchasing pleasure. Unframed finished art will be available from the $ 15 to the $ 150 level.
