Private Holography Instruction Since 1983

2014 is the 31st year of my holography workshops! I am currently working on a number in-house research projects, so I will be accepting only a limited number of students throughout the calendar year. Thank you for your understanding.

1. Handcrafted Holograms:

My most popular workshop for decades gives an appreciated for the heritage of holography. Working together in the holography lab, you'll create a one of a kind laser hologram to take home. Your hologram will be shot onto an archival quality, gelatin silver glass plate, not inexpensive film. For beginners, and also for those who wish to make holograms again after a long absence. Learn the entire step-by-step basic process, and see how you can easily and affordably set up your own hologram lab at home or at school. You'll also get some hands-on experience with various pieces of equipment, such as lenses, mirrors, beamsplitters and spatial filters. It is a great informal learning experience ... with an added dash of fun.

2. Presentations @ Your Location

Call (610-434-8236) or email about having a presentation about lasers and holograms for your group or organization. Length of each presentation can be adjusted from twenty minutes to one hour. A small honorarium or "pass the hat" to cover time and fuel is always appreciated, but never mandatory.


Workshops are at my home studio (Allentown, PA)
Any day except Sunday.
Presentations: Any day (church groups ok on Sundays)
