Michael Foster, a wet plate photographer from Oxford, MS will be making Ambrotype portraits. Ambrotypes are a type of photography similar to tin-types but done on glass. Not only are they beautiful portraits, but they will become treasured family heirlooms because they can last over 150 years!

Foster has began his adventure in wet plate photography 5 years ago, where he first learned how to make tintypes. While he claims he is still learning, his photographs, now on glass and known as ambrotypes, are stunning. He has a way of capturing a face and a spirit. 

He has been getting a lot of attention for his work, most recently, he was featured in Garden & Gun. He was also a part of the Mississippi Museum of Art’s bicentennial video collection of influential Mississippians.
