Holga Camera Class

event photos banner

photo classes

The Holga is a plastic film camera that provides an alternative way of taking pictures - it's minimalistic (which means it's easy to use, light to carry, and even costs less than $40).

Anyone can use the Holga - you don't need photography experience (but the better you see, the better your photographs will be). Over a few decades, the Holga has become a cult favorite, and even the most professional photographers have created images with the Holga that have appeared in gallery exhibits, magazines, and advertising. Mine have been featured in international advertising, on the pages of The NY Times, on book covers and music CDs.

Participants in this class receive a Holga camera and 120 format B&W or color film,
plus tips on how to get the best results and embrace the surprises of light leaks, vignetting, and blur. This a shortened version of my regular Holga class. See more information on this camera and browse some of my Holga photos here. Watch a short video clip where I talk about the Holga, and its relevance in an era where so many people photograph with their phones. 
The Magical Holga is one of a series of NYC area classes that I teach. See the entire schedule and sign up for my class mailing list to hear about new dates for workshops and photo outings.

Hope you can join us!
