Book a session at the unique Silver Portrait Store in the old centre of Amsterdam to capture your likeness in a professional Tintype/Ambrotype studio. The experienced portrait photographers Barend van Herpe and Annemarie van der Heijden use a modern take on a traditional 19th century technique known as Wet Plate Tintype or Black Glass Ambrotype photography. In approximately 60/90 minutes you will have had a wonderful experience to remember.

To create a timeless portrait, traditional skills in camera setup, lighting, timing and chemistry are vital. For each unique, one-off portrait we prepare an aluminium or black glass plate with a light sensitive layer. This wet plate is exposed in a large format camera obscura. After exposure, we invite you into the darkroom to witness first-hand the developing process in all its stages. You will receive the original plate-with-portrait. We also offer high quality framing, scans and fine art bariet prints.

As our clients testify, sitting for a traditional tintype portrait is a totally different experience from the film or digital age. This old magic takes you into a timeless zone, far beyond the hustle and bustle of everyday life – a place where you can see more of yourself or your loved ones.

Pass by this little gem in the old centre of Amsterdam to to have a look at the original Tintype and Ambrotype portraits, discuss the possibilities and to book a session.

Open: We.: 12am - 4pm, Th., Fr., Sa.: 11am - 6pm.

Other days/evenings on request.

  • A picture is a beautiful memory. A tintype photo with Barend and Anne marie of the Silver Portrait Store is an experience! An experience you will always remain. Great photos, lovely atmosphere, all the attention for you and the final result. A serious recommendation if you want to give someone a gift for life.

  • See yourself as you are and yet again not: otherwise, tijdlozer, sharper. That's more than craftsmanship. Pure magic to your portrait in the darkroom rise. Photography like it ever meant to be.
