Large Format Camera Workshop

You can learn how to use a large format camera. There isn’t much to large format cameras, but they can seem foreign if you are used to smaller formats. This 90 minute one-on-one workshop will introduce you to the world of large format photography and give you enough information so you know where you want to explore next. We use 8×10 cameras and Impossible Project 8×10 film so you get a print right away – both educational and satisfying!

These workshops are held at various times of the year depending on demand. Please call the store: 604-734-7771 or email if you are interested in this workshop and we will let you know when we schedule the next one. We occasionally make special considerations for personal tutorials hosted at the store aside from the regular running workshop, based on Kathy’s availability. If you are interested in booking a one-on-one tutorial, please contact the store.
