Explore the creative joys (and anxieties) of shooting film — whether you’ve never shot on analog before but are curious to try, or have a beloved old camera sitting in a closet collecting dust. Inspired by some 35mm film he shot on a recent trip, Kai McBride will share fresh impressions and give advice on current resources for interesting cameras, film, processing, scanning, and ways to integrate a film camera into your digital photography life. Following this workshop you will be itching to load a roll of film into a camera and make some exposures.

Mini-Workshops last about an hour and may have higher enrollment than our other classes.
I have taken photography classes at most of the renowned schools and organizations in the US, but none are better than those taught by Kai McBride of StrudelmediaLive.  He is an incredibly intelligent and gifted educator who goes out of his way to make every class a memorable experience filled with ‘aha’ moments. Kai has talent galore. Don’t miss his courses!

Kai McBride is a photographer, musician, teacher, and avid cyclist who recently uprooted from Brooklyn to sunny Santa Fe, New Mexico. He spent the last ten years teaching photography and managing the photo facilities at Columbia University, his alma mater, where he received an MFA in 2008.

Born on the island of Kauai in 1972, by his 18th birthday Kai had lived in California, Oregon, Mississippi, Wisconsin, Texas, Oahu, North Carolina, and Massachusetts. He sharpened his powers of observation while adjusting to life between suburban ranch-style homes, cabins with no running water, and a 20-foot teepee in the field of a commune.

His photographs have been exhibited in museum and gallery exhibitions, and are held in public and private collections. His first monograph, About Face: Picturing Tampa, was published by SPQR Editions in Fall 2016.

Kai teaches black and white photography, photobooks, and more for StrudelmediaLive.
