The Pop-up Studio

Large format instant film portraits.
The Pop-up Studio is a fine art photographic shop that shoots large format, instant film portraits. With an 8×10 inch Deardorff view camera and 8×10 inch Polaroid film, Stephen T. Yeakley captures one-of-a-kind images.

Painterly portraits with purpose. We take 15% of what we make and donate it to the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation.

With the 8×10 Deardorff camera and instant film, we like to get to know you a bit. Each session takes takes one hour, between setup and shooting, and developing the film. During that time we will work with you to create a one of a kind piece of art.

The instant film sessions are $250 and include two instant film captures as well as digital copies for your archives. Additional instant captures can be added to your session for an additional $75.

Beyond the quality, detail, and beauty captured in the timeless manner of large format photography, I believe slowing down is the only truly progressive answer in response to our culture’s productivity-focused, fast-paced, driven lifestyle.
