Photography Intensive with Michael Hudock
Do you love traditional photography but lack the time or opportunity to work with a film camera or be in a darkroom? The Photography Intensive is for you! This is not a digital photography course. We will work with 35 and 120mm black and white film in mechanical cameras. If you are new to chemical photography you will learn to shoot and develop your film, make prints in the darkroom, and improve your photography throughout the week. If you have previous experience you will sharpen your “eye”, clarify your ideas, and produce a small body of work. All students will learn and experiment with a variety of photographic processes and techniques with an emphasis on finding your own voice in your work. And the week will conclude with an exhibition of the work you’ve produced.
There are a limited number of film cameras available at camp. If you have a 35mm film camera please bring it.

Michael Hudock studied painting and drawing at Delta Community College College in Michigan and photography at Western Michigan University before moving to New Mexico 1978. He received a BS degree in education from the University of New Mexico in 1989. Hudock has worked with a variety of photographic processes including traditional black and white, Polaroid films, wet plate collodion, gum dichromate, liquid emulsions, and digital imaging, but he began painting again in 1996. His interest in timeworn objects and surfaces is a consistent theme in his digital and photographic work as well as being the subject of his paintings. Hudock’s work is in collections at the Polaroid Corporation, the New Mexico Museum of Fine Arts, and Ohio Wesleyan University, as well as numerous national and international private collections. He teaches photography at Sandia Preparatory School and is represented in Santa Fe by GF Contemporary.
