The Teenage Market at Market Hall Stockport
Our friends at The Teenage Market are putting on a day at Stockport Market hall aimed at giving youngsters the chance to promote their own creativity as well as getting involved with others and theirs.
In that vein, it seems only right that Lomography Gallery Store Manchester should be there to introduce everyone to the wonderfully creative world of Lomography!
We will be splitting the day into two sections, first of all at 12.15pm we’ll be doing “An Introduction to Lomography” which will be a free for all and anyone can listen in to find out what the hell Lomography is.
Secondly, at 12.40 we’ll be doing a workshop on our wide-angle beauty, La Sardina. We’ll give a group of you an introduction to the camera, filled with a roll of film for you to shoot, shoot, shoot! There will be lots of visual stimulation on the day, including the gorgeous market hall itself.
The whole day is cheap, with entry to the market only £1 each.
The cost of the workshop will be £5, including everything; lending of the camera, roll of film and the processing. This is a one off price so be sure to book quick! We can take payment over the phone or in store in advance, or by cash on the day. Please note that spaces are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.

The Patron Saint Of Lomography

Protest At The People’s History Museum
So when the People’s History Museum told us that they were planning to run a competition for young photographers, we knew that it was something we had to get involved with! Obviously, Lomography had to add the added element of all competition entries being shot on film, so we’ve put together a series of workshops so that contestants (and anyone else) can get to grips with shooting on film as well as maybe even taking the winning the shot!
For our first workshop in this series, we will be kicking off with an introduction to the wide angled beauty La Sardina. We’ll tell you everything you need to know to successfully shoot a roll of film, before we head down to check out the collections at the People’s History Museum for some inspiration!
Tickets cost £15 and include a lend-a-camera, a roll of film, entry to the museum and 10% off processing after!
Saturday 28th April, 2pm
Vive La Revolution!
For our second workshop as part of our collaboration with the People’s History Museum, we’re giving another opportunity to take that winning shot for their young photographer’s competition. Anyone under 25 can enter, and the theme is “Protest”. As Lomography Gallery Store Manchester are going to be on the judging panel, it’s only right that all entries have to be shot on film!
So, for those that don’t have their own film camera, and for anyone else who wants to have a go, we’re holding a Diana F+ workshop. We’ll meet in store and give an introduction to the camera and how to achieve the best results. We’ll then get crafty. Got something to say? Write it on a placard! We’ll then hit the streets with them, and who knows, the winning shot might be taken!
For further details on the competition and terms and conditions, please see the People’s History Museum website.
Tickets are £15 and include a presentation, a roll of film, craft supplies and 10% off processing!
Sunday April 29th, 2pm
Through The Eye Of A Needle
So for the day, we’ll be taking off the lenses, flicking the aperture setting round to “P” and taking some gorgeous Pinhole photos!
We’ll give you an introduction to the Diana F+ as well as all the best tips you need for successfully shooting on the pinhole mode. Loaded with a roll of film, we’ll take to the streets to get to grips with Pinhole photography. Take comfort in the knowledge that everyone around the world that’s interested in analogue photography will be doing the same thing!
