The Pop-up Studio

Fine art 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 Thomas Yeakley makes one-of-a-kind images. Beyond the quality, detail, and beauty captured in the timeless manner of large format photography, we believe slowing down is the only truly progressive answer in response to our culture’s productivity-focused, fast-paced, driven lifestyle.

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

Family sessions

Instant film portraits — $375

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

Each family instant film session is $375 and includes three instant film captures as well as digital copies for your personal archives. Additional instant captures can be purchased for $75 apiece. Custom framing is available for purchase as well.
