Digital Darkroom & Lighting Studio Passes

Registration

Please email us at education@hcponline.org or call us at 713-529-4755 to purchase a Digital Darkroom or Lighting Studio Pass.

Orientation

After purchasing access to the Digital Darkoom and/or Lighting Studio, you need to schedule an Orientation session that will familiarize you with the equipment and setup of the space. This orientation is mandatory prior to use of either spaces (unless waived by the education department), but it is not required for taking workshops in the Digital Darkroom or Lighting Studio. You will be contacted to schedule an Orientation session once you have registered to use the studio space.
