September is almost here and we are determined to make the most of the summer while it hasn't ended. This coming month we have two LC-A+ workshops, a Sprocket Rocket workshop at the London Analogue Festival,and a Make your Own Camera Obscura Workshop.
Monday – Friday 1st – 5th & 8th – 12th September between 1-2pm: Weekdays with the Petzval Lens
We have officially launched the Petzval lens and know that many of you want to get the chance to test out the lens and see the beautiful effects first hand. We now offer the opportunity to spend one hour with the brass beauty, a one-on-one chat with our staff, and to explore the lens on your own around the streets of Carnaby with your own Nikon or Canon film or digital SLR camera.
Tickets are £20 each but will be refunded if you decide to purchase the lens. Please book in advance via 02074341466 to secure your slot as we only take one person per day. Please also bring a valid Passport (no other identification will be accepted) to leave with us whilst the lens is on loan.
