Our full day Pinsta workshop filled up quickly! We are thrilled to be able to offer this two-hour introduction to the Pinsta pinhole camera (a lens-free camera and darkroom in one) workshop with Martin Vanners, world-renowned Dutch pinhole photographer and social media manager and content creator for Pinsta. Martin will co-teach this course with Jen Cohen from the Raw Art Collective.

Students will be able to experience the magic of using the Pinsta camera and take home a couple of photos each. Bring your curiosity and come prepared for a fun-packed two hours. No photography experience necessary.

Martin Vanners has a rich creative history (15 years of digital photography, followed by 5 years of 3D and animation). He discovered analog pinhole photography recently and found his soul mission in teaching his sought-after workshop "The Art of Being," where mindfulness meets pinhole photography. Focus Magazine, one of the oldest photo magazines in the world, recently did a full-length feature on Martin and his pinhole photography work. Martin has been an invited speaker at the prestigious Amsterdam Photo academy, and exhibits his work globally.
