There will be a Pinhole Photography workshop from 11am until 1pm where photographer Al Karevy will demonstrate different methods and techniques for building your own pinhole camera out of anything from a coffee can to a potato! As of 1pm, the darkroom at VCP will be set up for developing prints and any and all are welcome to come in to test out their homemade pinhole cameras. If you do not need a tutorial on building a pinhole camera, or already have one ready to go, feel free to arrive any time after 1pm to spend the afternoon shooting and processing prints in the darkroom. The darkroom will be open until 5:00pm.

Later on Sunday, VCP can scan your best pinhole image and upload it to the pinhole day website to share with the international pinhole day community. The instructor for WPPD is Commercial Photographer, Al Karevy of Richmond NH. Karevy has been using pinhole cameras for 20 years and has led the VCP Pinhole Celebration for many years.

Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day  is a grand excuse to get back in touch with the joy of photography unencumbered by the technology of modern cameras. There is a $5 – $20 sliding scale fee to participate in the workshop, to cover material costs and darkroom chemistry.
