As a Tim Layton Fine Art Angel Supporter, you make things possible that otherwise would not be an option for me as an artist.  

Your generous contribution every year is appreciated very deeply. It keeps me creating art and focused on the mission, versus chasing around tasks to earn money to keep the lights on.  

I create exclusive limited edition 1 of 1 fine art Platinum HistographsTM for my angel supporters every year that is not offered anywhere else in the world.  

I connect with you to learn about your preferences, and then I get busy creating something special and exclusive for you.  Feel free to email me with any questions and ideas for new artwork that you would like.   

You can get started immediately by becoming an Angel Supporter today. 

You can also view and purchase my limited edition Platinum Histograph Heirloom Fine ArtTM gallery prints via my online gallery.  You can visit my Platinum Printmaking page to learn more about how I create my Platinum Histograph Heirloom Fine Art Prints. 


Tim Layton, photographer, darkroom expert and artistic innovator invented the Platinum HistographTM, inviting you to use your senses to take a step back in time. This visceral experience of holding history in your hands delights history buffs, art collectors, photographers and art enthusiasts with craftsmanship, artistry, and history through a curated collection of fine platinum prints.

Each Platinum Histograph
TM begins by Tim using a 19th-century style large format film camera and exposing large sheets of black and white film.  After the field work, Tim heads back to his darkroom studio in the mountains and develops the sheet film to the specifications suitable to create Platinum HistographsTM.  Platinum HistographsTM is the most archival of all art mediums because of the inherent stability of platinum and exhibits a tonal scale and rendering of tonal values that are described by many as ethereal and three-dimensional.  Once you hold a Platinum HistographTM in your hands for a personal experience, you will understand what makes them so unique.  

Platinum is one of the rarest elements in earth’s crust. Because of its scarcity and is valued as a precious metal, the price is elevated and its only used for important reasons. Over the last ten years, the price for an ounce of Platinum reached an all-time high at $2,270.50 per ounce. 

Platinum is one of the least reactive metals, and it has remarkable resistance to corrosion, even at high temperatures, and is therefore considered a noble metal. This is one of the reasons why it is the perfect choice for making handmade Platinum HistographsTM to preserve history. 

Noble metals are metals that are resistant to corrosion and oxidation in moist air, unlike base metals. The short list of chemically noble metals includes ruthenium (Ru), rhodium (Rh), palladium (Pd), silver (Ag), osmium (Os), iridium (Ir), gold (Au), and platinum (Pt), with Platinum being more stable than even gold.

By combing the remarkable stability of platinum with a high quality and chemically pure paper substrate, you get the world most archival photographic print that can last indefinitely when curated properly.  

Each Platinum HistographTM is hand mounted on museum-quality mat board devoid of any optical brighteners or other agents to speed up the deterioration process. 

Each Platinum HistographTM includes Tim's original signature, the title of the work, date it was created, edition number, and a certificate of authenticity validating the original artwork.   


Thanks again for your kindness and willingness to support an artist in the 21st century.  I hope the artwork that I create for you provides a welcomed break from the very busy and fast paced world we live in today.
