The abandoned car. 12 month pinhole picture of a car park

Extended (12 month) pinhole picture from Ditteridge near Bath

The owner of the car on the left of this picture must have reduced their carbon footprint massively as it has hardly moved over the 12 months of this exposure. On the right, cars appear only as faint, unrecognisable ghosts. One of the fascinating qualities of these images is that they record features which the passing observer wouldn’t notice. How would you know which car had been abandoned if you took a normal photograph of a car park?

The lines in the sky show the passage of the sun across the sky through the year.

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.
