Our workshops let you get to grips with a genuine vintage camera with the least possible effort for the greatest possible enjoyment. 

In the morning get familiar with your camera and spend time on a walking tour of the neighbourhood.    By the end of the day your photos will be ready.

Our 'Snapshots' class is for those who are completely new to film photography.  After a short introduction you will be able to take genuine film photographs.  Then we will develop the film and print your photos.


If you want to delve a bit deeper then 'Vintage Photography' gets you involved with loading, unloading and developing your images.

All our courses come with as much or as little supervision as you require to give you the most enjoyable experience.

Snapshots

Press the shutter and leave the rest to us.

Use one of the most commonly available cameras of the early 20th century.  Known as 'Box' cameras the most famous of them was the 'Brownie' made by the Eastman Kodak Company.  Other contenders included the 'Puck' by Thornton Pickard and the 'Ensign' by Butchers and Son, 

After a short introduction take the camera out and about then bring it back for us to produce the final pictures.  No fuss, no mess.
