Digitype Experience

A photograph of a dog cuddled up in blankets, that was submitted online to be transformed into a tintype photograph

DigiType Photograph

We understand coming to our studio is not always an option, so we are bringing this unique experience right to you. Following the same methods H.H. Bennett perfected more than 100 years ago, the DigiType enhances your favorite photograph. We create a stunning image by transforming your treasured memory into a one-of-a-kind work of art on metal, a timeless heirloom that can be passed down for generations to come.
