Professional Development for Educators & Team Building for Organizations

Professional Development Opportunities for our Valued Educators


Offered all year long; Residencies, Workshops, Personalized Gallery & Darkroom Tours, Digital Photography and Literacy Workshops

The Light Factory serves as a community center for learning, sharing and engaging others in creative exploration and inspired awareness of photography and the moving image. We have an active community darkroom, a series of exciting and culturally relevant exhibitions, and we invite educators and working professionals to join us to expand creative skills, open up the imagination and find rejuvination and support within our space!


We have shared darkroom experiences and gallery tours for many years. We find that by allowing educators the opportunity to be supported creatively and shown something new themselves, they leave with a refreshed sense of purpose in their field. We are proud to provide a supportive community of fellow photography and film artists, and we enjoy nurturing others in their own artistic journey.


Please contact our Education Deparment at to speak with our staff and learn more about opportunities for Professional Development.
