The Holga Hustle – Join the Camera Dance and Print Show!

If you’ve been following our Fabulous Film Fridays project, you’ll know that Samantha and I have been having a lot of fun playing around with our Holga cameras, Beep and Bop.  So much so that we want to share the fun and invite YOU and your Holga (or other toy film camera) to come along with us on May 7th to The Holga Hustle and Print Show.  We’ll be in Lake Louise in Banff National Park with Beep and Bop, just walking around and taking pictures of whatever catches our fancy.  There are lots of paths along the river and of course visitors coming to enjoy the wonderful scenery of the Canadian Rockies, so there will be plenty to shoot. If you need a Holga go to The Camera Store in Calgary to pick one up, the more colourful the better! If you don’t know how to use your Holga, don’t worry we’ll be there to help you and I can tell you personally all the mistakes you can possibly make!

We’ll be at the Holga Hustle from 2:00pm until 4:30pm on Saturday, May 7th after which we are heading over to nearby Baker Creek Bistro to launch our Print Show!  The Bistro has generously provided space in their restaurant for us to show some of our prints, including some made with our Holgas.  From 5:00pm until 7:00pm, Sam and I will be at the print show with both Holga prints and a sampling of digital files printed on aluminum from Image Wizards to demonstrate in glowing colour the beauty of the area.  There will be free snacks on hand for munching (yum!), and if you need a glass of wine after the exertion of the afternoon walk, alcoholic drinks will be available for purchase.  Plus we’ll be doing a draw for a toy camera out of the participants’ names!

While you’re at Baker Creek then, why not make a reservation for dinner to enjoy the excellent, locally-sourced food at the Bistro or make a weekend of it by staying at the Baker Creek Chalets.  This is where we host our SNAP! Photography Seminars workshop October 27-30, 2011 so now is your chance to check out this world-class accommodation. The folks at Baker Creek are offering anyone coming for the Holga Hustle a 15% discount on a two-night stay. Just mention our names (Darwin and Samantha) and come hang out in the Rockies that weekend!

Convinced?  Then come to The Holga Hustle and Print Show at the Bistro to see what you can do with a Holga image.  Space is limited to only 20 people! If you would like to attend the Hustle and Print Show, please email us to reserve your spot.

  1. I’ll not be there so cheers to a successful show launch.

    Wish I could be there. Sounds like great fun. You guys have inspired me to use my old Hasselblad. I had forgotten what beautiful black and whites prints that it takes. Never used it with color film. Will be thinking of you, and will head off to Yosemite (about 1 1/2 hour away) to shoot.
