TRAVELING TINTYPE HISTORY
BRIDGE works hard at improving each workshop to make your session fun and enjoyable. Since 2013, Traveling Tintypes has moved out of their car and into portable darkroom tents. YES! Seasonal trips have gone from twice a year, to six times a year, and new locations have been intertwined with some of our classic spots. A special thanks to all our participants for all of their suggestions and feedback, without you our workshops would not be what they are today.

The Traveling Tintype workshop is headed to Anza Borrego to revisit the site of our very first workshop at Agua Caliente. Join us for this introductory course in wetplate where participants will be making 2.5x2.5 in. tintypes using a view camera. If you've never been on trip with us before, this is the place to start, no experience with photography or cameras necessary. Each participant will leave with 4 finished tintype images.
