Photography at Aycock Birthplace
Mr. Fields and Mr. Williams,
We will have a photographer from Wilmington that coming to the Aycock Birthplace on July 21 in the afternoon and the evening. This photographer does tintypes similar to the Civil War era ones. He was at Fort Anderson back in February and wants to come down and take pictures of the area. He is also willing to take pictures of people at the Birthplace. His stuff is pretty good. This is his blog site if you are interested:
Open it HERE.
He was at Ft Fisher on June 10 and he has posted some pictures of that and also of Ft. Anderson in Feb. To tell you the truth some of those pictures are hard to tell whether or not the pictures are modern or Civil War. His prices are for a ¼ plate is $40 and ½ plate is $50. A plate is 6 ½ X 8 1/8.
I hope that you might spread word the members of the Dr. Person SCV Camp and see if any are interested in having a good tintype made in their uniform or in present day clothing or even y'all might be interested in a group shot., they are more than welcome to come by the site and I know that the photographer would have no problem with paying customers.
