Cultural Heritage Imaging (CHI) offers classes and workshops in computational photography techniques used by cultural heritage and natural science professionals to document and research objects and artifacts. We train conservators, archaeologists, museum curators, museum photographers, anyone who wants to learn how to use the low-cost, digital techniques in which CHI specializes. We also train staff at special collections libraries on how to capture paper and bindings.
We hold training sessions on site at excavation sites, museums, and universities, and at the CHI studio in San Francisco, California.
