Our courses are taught by Andreas Olesen and occasionally feature a guest instructor. We can help with any sort of project, be it artistic, professional or simply for fun.

Andreas Olesen has been working as an analog photographer since 1998, when he (finally) got the chance to try out a darkroom. He never looked back. He worked for many years at Seawood Photo, the bay area’s best classic camera store, as well as assisting many photographers along the way. He attended The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and has been a working artist ever since.
