Behind the Scenes of Tintype Photography

La Sportiva Climbing Athlete Alex Honnold

Celebrating La Sportiva's 90 years with an inside look at the process of making tintype photography...

- - -

Since 1928, La Sportiva has been handcrafting climbing shoes and mountain boots in our family-run factory in the Ziano di Fiemme​ ​valley. The factory's location—in the heart of the Italian Dolomites— has provided a constant source of inspiration to our team of designers and craftsmen to produce performance-focused footwear, that can be tested just outside the factory door. In celebration of our longstanding dedication to fine craftsmanship, we're bringing you the tintype athlete portrait project, a photography series that captures the essence of an artisan trade started many decades ago, not long before La Sportiva began fine-tuning the art of cobbling mountain boots. Here's a-behind-the-scenes look at the tintype process:
