Harrington Traveling Photographic Artists Will Be at the BGA 150th Gettysburg


Harrington Traveling Photographic Artists Will Be at the BGA 150th Gettysburg

What’s the point of writing a blog is I can’t use it for the occasional shameless promotion of Harrington Traveling Photographic Artists (“HTPA”)?

Yes, HTPA will be making wet plate collodion images on tin and glass at the Blue Gray Alliance 150th Gettysburg Reenactment, which will take place June 27th to 30th at Bushey Farm, 1845 Pumping Station Road, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. This is the same location as the memorable 135th Anniversary Reenactment.

The BGA knows how to put on a top class event; and 150th Gettysburg will no doubt be one of the best of the 150th cycle.  There are purportedly 9000 re-enactors registered for this event.

Some of the marquee events include Battle of Culp’s Hill and East Cemetery Ridge Friday evening, Battles of Devil’s Den, Little Round Top, Wheatfield, Peach Orchard on Saturday afternoon, and the Pickett, Pettigrew, Trimble Charge Sunday at 12:30. This should be an awesome re-enactment.

For anybody wanting to reserve a time or schedule photographs in advance, please contact us at htpaofvirginia@gmail.com.  We will be taking reservations for Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 20-minute intervals beginning at 8:00am.  You can also come by and schedule a time upon arrival. Thursday will be first come first serve.

HTPA will also have available for purchase frame gold-toned albumen prints, including prints of the Burnside Bridge taken at Antietam in September 2012 – 150 years after the battle and a selection of artistic framed ferrotypes/tintypes.

We will also have a limited number of original ¼ plate cases and appropriate frames and mats for images we make at the event.

This event is one to commemorate. What better way than with a period correct photographic image!
