Join us for a unique and captivating experience on August 4th and 5th, as we welcome back artist Josh White to the Florence Thomas Art School. During this exclusive occasion, Josh will be offering tin type portraits, capturing your essence through the remarkable wet plate collodion process.

The wet plate collodion process, introduced by Frederick Scott Archer in the 1850s, is a photographic technique that involves coating a plate, sensitizing, developing, and fixing, all while the plate is still wet. This meticulous process results in exquisite images of exceptional detail and beauty, creating one-of-a-kind photographs that are truly unlike any other.

Each tin type portrait session with Josh will last approximately 15 minutes, so be prepared for your portrait upon arrival. To secure your spot, a $25 deposit is required, which will also contribute towards the final cost of your unique photo.

Joshua White is not only an accomplished artist but also a husband, father, and banjo player. He obtained his MFA from Arizona State University and currently resides in western North Carolina, where he holds the position of Associate Professor of Art at Appalachian State University. His passion for the wet plate collodion process shines through in his work, and he brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to each portrait session.

Don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity to have a timeless tin type portrait taken by the talented Josh White. Immerse yourself in the artistry and historical significance of this captivating photographic process. Limited slots are available, so make sure to reserve your spot in advance.

Join us on August 4th and 5th for an unforgettable experience, where art and history converge to create stunning works of art that will be cherished for generations to come.
