About the Event

Step back in time and experience H.H. Bennett’s historic photography studio like never before! Have your portrait “struck” using the same wet plate photography method used by H.H. Bennett, in the same studio, over 100 years ago. Learn about this type of photography all while the authentic historic lens captures your one-of-a-kind image that will last a lifetime.


Sit where H.H. and Frankie Bennett’s subjects sat while you experience the sights and smells of an 1875 photography studio. Have your portrait taken and witness the developing process as you learn about 19th-century photography.


Please note, due to the amount of chemistry and difficulty of exposing images in a 19th-century style camera, the portrait (one image) takes an average of 20 to 30 minutes each. Each TinType Experience session is booked for one hour, so we can offer up to two portraits in one session. Click here for more information about the TinType Experience process.


Cost: $80, upgrades and additions are available during visit on-site, click here for options.

Society members receive a 10% discount
