Build your very own pinhole film camera! Once built, explore various photography skills such as exploring angles, compositions, and exposure. Being able to participate in the whole photographic process is something magical and more accessible than you can imagine: from the creation of your own camera, to capturing the moment you want to photograph, and printing on paper.


Meet the Educator

Nick has been involved in photography since taking one free class available to staff members while working at UW Stout in the ‘70’s. He taught in the Art Department at Knox College from 1977 to 1985, where he started working with pinhole photography after arranging a workshop with Ruth Thorne-Thomsen, an internationally exhibited pinhole photographer. In 1992, working in instructional technology at UW Oshkosh, along with a chemistry professor, he received a grant to develop a set of lessons for elementary schools that used pinhole photography to illustrate numerous principles of chemistry and physics. That eventually led to offering summer pinhole photography classes in the University’s GOAL program for kids in 2000. That rekindled his obsession with creating photographs, since then almost exclusively practiced with a pinhole camera.
