Its pinhole camera harvest time again!

It is this time of the year that I adopt my alter ego of The Pinhole Wizard and collect the pinhole cameras that I scattered across the country in the depths of Winter. These simple cameras take a single exposure over a full 6 month period. They  are exposed to all that the British Weather can throw at them. Many are full of rainwater, pollen, insects and sometimes air rifle pellets. Here is just one of the pictures ‘harvested’ this Summer from the National Trust’ Dyrham Park Estate near Bath. The image has lots of little spots from grass pollen, the lines in the sky is a record of the sun as it passes across the sky through the seasons. You can see more examples in my extreme pinhole photography page

If you are interested in a talk on the subject or a practical pinhole photography workshop send me an email or call on 07973 631185

Mobile pinhole photography workshops

A camera is one of the simplest creative tools there is. In this one day workshop you will learn the basic principles of photography, make your own camera, and take pictures with it. You will also see how a pinhole camera made from household rubbish can record images that a modern digital camera costing many thousands of pounds cannot.

The workshop can be delivered in any office or classroom, I bring my own simple darkroom which requires a 2m x 2m square area and all other equipment and materials required. At the end of the session attendees will have made their own camera and taken a few pictures with it.

This workshop has been succesfully delivered at Bath University, for the National Trust and for private individuals

Workshop pricing

  • For schools, colleges and not for profit organisations £250 for up to 10 attendees
  • Private individuals £40/person with a minimum of 7 attendees

There is a small charge for delivering the workshop more than 20 miles from Bath, email me for a quote.

Please contact me if you would like more information 07973 631185

Extended exposure pinhole photography – camera harvest

I have just harvested the last lot of 6 month pinhole extended exposure pinhole cameras from sites across the South West of England. This is one of the best shots so far taken at Cheney Court near Bath. The colours in the image are completely natural. While I use black and white photographic paper it seems to change colour according to the subject.
