The Lumiere Photobooth is a Roaming Tintype Studio
If you're in Austin, you can get your portrait taken by a rolling tintype studio
There’s something of a tintype resurgence happening right now, a new generation of photographers getting interested in some very old school techniques. Husband and wife pair Adrian Whipp and Loren Doyen of Austin, TX, have taken tintypes one step further, replicating a studio in the vein of old, itinerant photographers.
Their project is dubbed Lumiere, and it’s a tintype photobooth on wheels. Dragged behind their truck, it’s fully mobile, with all the tools and chemicals they need stashed on board. Here’s how they describe it:
Starting at just $40, you can get a tintype portrait — which really isn’t any more expensive than most portrait studios, and you know will at least be interesting.
