About the Event

Grandpa's Camera Workshop

Ever wondered what it was like for our great-grandparents (or maybe great-great grandparents) to take a photo? Join Jeff Sass and a selection of vintage film cameras from the turn of the century-before-last. Try your hand at shooting 1920's box cameras for an hour in the beautiful foliage of downtown Alton, then head into the darkroom to learn how to process and make a print!

Sunday, October 29th



Ages 14 +

Taught by Jeff Sass

Enter through Main Broadway Entrance to meet up before heading out!

Jeff Sass is an accomplished photographer and artist.  Amazing happenstance, too perfect to be truly coincidental, led him to become the dark room facilitator and photography artist-in-residence at JAC! Jeff is recently retired and will be spending his days running his business, Prints of Darkness, from the new darkroom at Jacoby.
