Portrait Services

At Hip Xiong we believe in creating something with tangible value, images formed by real silver on a blackened metal plate that will last centuries.

We cater to individuals, couples and even groups ranging from 3 - 5 pax. We believe that each portrait is special and unique, and that there is no one size fits all approach. We are strictly by appointment only so do reach out to us for a quote as well as to make a booking.

* Children under the age of 5 and pets might not suitable for a wet plate shoot. Do contact us to find out more.

Tintype Workshop

Through our constant effort to perfect the wet plate collodion process, we are able to make the knowledge more accessible to anyone who is fascinated by its unique aesthetic and want to use it as a new form of artistic expression.

Get hands on in creating your own tintype portraits. Each participant will get to learn the science and technique of wet plate photography and get to do a total of 4 plates on their own (2 plates per participant). Workshop session also includes a couple portrait taken by our workshop instructor. At the end of the session you will get to keep all 5 plates together with a digital scan of all the plates that were done.

* Children under the age of 12 are not suitable for a wet plate workshop.
