Tintype Portrait Event at Pioneer Goods Co

Check it out!
Look who is coming to our Boston store,
Pioneer Goods next Friday night!
 In the tradition of artists and tradesmen of generations past, portrait photographer Giles Clement is taking his studio on the road. Clement uses the tintype method of photography to create unique silver images on sheets of black metal. Tintyping was popular in the late 1800’s, but was quickly abandoned as less difficult and more reliable methods of portraiture were invented. Clement’s camera equipment is antique – some of it more than 160 years old. In harmony with old methods and equipment, he uses modern lighting and technologies to capture the faces, and often the souls, of a new generation of artists, inventors and pioneers. 
He will be stopping through Boston on July 18th and is being hosted by Pioneer Goods for an evening of tintype portraiture. We invite you to join us from 6-9pm and to have your portrait taken in the way of your great grandparents. Clement will be taking 4x5 inch tintypes for the price of $50. Each plate will be carefully rinsed, scanned into a digital file and then ready for pick up the following day at Pioneer. The plates themselves will last for hundreds of years and are a great way to capture yourself in a timeless and beautiful way.
 Gorgeous!
So head to Pioneer Goods Co at 764 Tremont Street this Friday
July 18 from 6-9 to grab a drink, check out our cool store and 
get your portrait done, old school style!
You will be glad you did!
Mr. Maison Decor and Dillon will be getting their 
portrait done, so if you want your pooch included,
don't leave him at home.
