You might noticed that I’ve changed the name of this film workshop. I really wanted it to accurately reflect what I teach and what I feel is important about film photography…family, authenticity, roots and emotions. In my previous workshops, I’ve spoken about the charm of film and how implementing it in your photography enables you to slow down and capture the moments that really matter. I’ve also shared how film evokes feelings in its own way… in those images up there you’ll see my clients, my children – and me. Some of those are my father’s slides from wayyyy back. And yes, we’d all sit down with the carousel every few months just like many of you did… all four of us, usually with popcorn, waiting for each image to go ’round the carousel. With film, each shot meant something – and still does. It’s purposeful and yet spontaneous. Authentic. Each frame is meant to be a keepsake.

This workshop is intended to show you how to make keepsakes. From start to finish. Here is what we’ll cover: – The film that I use and why – 35mm and medium format camera types – metering for film – how to shoot without taking a meter reading – the beauty of film in every kind of light – film developing and scanning – how to photograph children & families with film (real, spontaneous, natural sessions) You’ll have access to my camera collection and can test out both 35mm and medium format. The workshop includes 4 rolls of film, a mobile app with tips & advice, two sessions for your portfolio, lunch and snacks the day of the workshop as well as your stay in the Cottage if you’re attending from out of town.
