Tintype Central Portrait Studio

123 Whitaker Street Te Aroha 3320


Tintype Central is a portrait studio specialising in the wet plate collodion process, a 19th-century method of development that predates film photography. Each image is hand-crafted,  producing an original direct-positive image on a sheet of glass or aluminium plate.  This process produces unique images with a timeless beauty.

A mobile darkroom is available for private and corporate events. If you would like to host a pop up photo studio as part of your celebration, please contact Tintype Central.

Portrait sessions and workshops are available on request.

Gift vouchers can be mailed or the recipient and are valid for 12 months from the date of purchase. 

Opening hours are by appointment only - bookings can be made via the website.
