Craig Fouché Photography proudly presents Film Photography One-on-One Photography Workshop on an exclusive one day or weekend workshop to help you conquer your fears regarding shooting film. In this film workshop, I will teach you all that is needed for you to capture the look and feel you’re trying to achieve without presets and filters in Photoshop or Lightroom. Here we go absolutely analogue, by slowing down, going back to basics, focusing on what you have in-camera and taking the best photo possible. To achieve this we will focus on photography’s roots – film. Film Workshop
The different size formats are as follows 35mm, medium format also called 120, 220 and 645, large format and ultra-large format. I will teach you one of the three formats of film that I shoot, which is 35mm, 120 and 4×5″ large format on this film workshop. Depending on what format you are wanting to learn, this will also affect the cost involved. Film medium prices vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, and size format too. Film Workshop
As a starting point, I will provide you with 2 rolls of either colour, or 1 colour and black and white film in either 35mm or 120 – medium format, 10 sheets 4×5″ in either colour or black and white film. Should you require more film, the price will be affected by that. In 35mm, there are either 24 or 36 frames per roll, 120 – 12 frames (more or less) depending on the medium format system you are using per roll, and large format uses sheets that need to be loaded in a darkroom or changing bag.
Step one is where we will go in-depth into getting started with film, which film works for you, how to meter light, and how to work with a lab when processing your images. You will also learn just how forgiving film can be when it comes to exposure.
Step two is where you will also learn how to develop your film by hand and wait with bated breath to see if all your images came out or not.
Step three is where we will take you through the printing process in the darkroom and you can watch your images come to life before your very eyes!
We will be shooting outdoors or in the studio if you so desire, or at a studio of your choosing, I have a small home studio in Worcester.

Craig Fouché Photography will be presenting an exclusive seascape, landscape, and night sky workshop at the charming picturesque West Coast Coastlines hamlet of Dwarskerbos, South-Africa. Our accommodation will be at Wamakersvlei Beach Farm which is your own authentic private haven of tranquility and soul food under a zillion stars. Dwarskersbos is a sleepy fishing village popular with holidaymakers, located on the West Coast Way Berg Route with pristine beaches which are dotted with fishing boats. It is located some 11 km north of Laaiplek. The name is said to be derived from Afrikaans; kersbos (candle bush) is a type of plant, Euclea polyandra, or Sarcocaulon species. The beach stretches from Velddrif and Dwarskerbos to Elands Bay, making it the longest uninterrupted sandy beach of 7km in South Africa. Steeped in history Wamakersvlei Beach Farm is a must to experience on the West Coast Coastline of South Africa. Here is where you will reconnect with nature and learn the art of seascape, landscape, 35mm film photography – loading your Ilfiord film, shooting and developing it and astrophography.
