Black & White Film Developing Workshop

$55.00 – Just bring an exposed roll of film and we have the rest! We teach you how to process black and white film without a darkroom. Appointments are individual so they can be arranged at a time that is convenient for you. Call Nicole at 604.734.7771 or email for more information.

Digital workflow and printing on the Canon Pro-1000/2000 printers

Printing on the canon pro-2000 printer

For $55.00 your one-on-one session will teach you about colour management in your digital workflow, and how to use the Canon Pro-1000 or Pro 2000 printers. This is ideal if you would like to use our self-serve printing station and don’t know where to start. If you are thinking about getting a printer, or have just purchased one, this will help you optimise your setup to get the best prints possible.  Session includes 1-2 8.5×11 prints from files you bring with you.

Learn to More Effectively Use Your Camera

This is an individual course and we teach you with your camera to help you get to know it better. Film or digital are welcome! Come with questions, and failed images and/or images you aspire to achieve if you like. Call Nicole at 604.734.7771 or email for more information.

Learn to Clean Your Camera Sensor

For $80.00 (only $5 more than a regular cleaning) we are offering a one-on-one session to not only clean your sensor, but also show you the proper techniques so you can clean it yourself in the future if you wish to. This would include any needed cleaning fluid and appropriately sized swabs. For more information, or to book your own personal sensor cleaning, call Mike at 604.734.7771 or e-mail him at
