I'm a Berlin based hobby photographer shooting landscapes, traveling, portraits and daily banalities on digital, mobile and of course analog gear.

Andy Wasley

I've spent much of the last 13 years in some pretty bland places, so since finding my way into sunlight in 2008 I've had an increasingly nagging interest in recording what I see around me. Luckily my job and my fiancé take me to lots of wonderful places, both in my fabulous homeland, Britain, and further afield. It's good to make up for lost time.

Ante Prskalo

I'm a Djakovo (Croatia) based amateur photographer, and a member of "Foto-kino klub Djakovo" dedicated to shooting on film. A big fan of Praktica MTL5b which is my main go-to camera. Other than than, very much into cooking/baking, watching quality TV, listening to music of questionable quality and making friends online.

Antonio Biagiotto

Antonio Lastoria

Barnaby Nutt

If you google Ian Nutt you get an American football coach. Google Barnaby Nutt and you get me. So I prefer to use the latter for my online stuff. (Barnaby is actually my middle name).I've used film since there was no alternative. I was tempted away by the glittering technological delights of digital, but thanks mainly to 52 Rolls, I'm well and truly back to analogue. It kind of fits with the rest of my lifestyle of bicycles and fine ales. Surprisingly, I don't have a big beard.

Bruno Silva

Corinthiano Apostólico Romano, fotógrafo de rua e amante de analógico. Film is not dead. It just smells funny.

Christopher Schmidtke

Daniel Tim

Daniel Tim lives in Helsinki, Finland and “rediscovered” film at the beginning of 2015 after a break of many years. Firmly hooked on shooting and pushing black and white films that puts even EMULSIVE to shame.

Darren Kelland

I am primarily a film photographer and like many people I started shooting with film when I was much younger. I didn't really fall in love with photography then though – that came much later.When I am taking photographs I look for simplicity. I want to find two or three elements that interact with each other. I don't like clutter so I try to strip out anything that I consider unnecessary. I love minimalism and black and white is better than colour for this purpose.

Dee Elegia

A Scottish self-taught analog/mixed media artist; I’m now a proud ‘jock’ living in Manchester. Creating with tangible imagery is what really drives and inspires me. I spend most days in my darkroom. I’ve been very humbled to have my work exhibited and published internationally. (My Dad thinks I’m ace).

Don Kittle

As you'll see in the portraits gallery, I really enjoy getting people out in nature and photographing them in dramatic settings.

EMULSIVE

Self confessed film-freak and film photography mad-obsessive and OVERLORD at emulsive.org. I push, pull, shoot, boil and burn film everyday, and I want to share what I learn.

Erik Gould

Gerhard Reininger

I returned to shooting film to slow down after the usual digital detour. Fumbling around with film feels like sidestepping off the highways of life on which we are being pushed along in constant acceleration. And it feels good, one one side.On the other side film can drive you crazy. The whole process has so many traps that you can step into and that can easily spoil all your efforts to create good photographs. And scanning negatives is just a pain in the ass.My website shows film and (some) digital work. My photography. The results of my efforts.

Ian Christie

Isabel Curdes

Like a kid I see and feel magic and beauty everywhere - there are mysteries behind every bend in the road, behind each tree in the forest or beyond old church walls, there is beauty among the shells on the beach, in the clouds above and the waves below, there is magic in the storm, the fog and the sunshine. I can float through ephemeral daydreams, walk through that mysterious realm which is often dark, silent and solitary, but can also be dreamy, soft and subtle, whatever I want and need it to be - a timeless place where I can be myself or whatever I want to be..."just beyond reality".

Ivan Pilov

I'm an Israel-based photographer whose two main interests in photography are streets and film. When I'm not shooting I work as an informal education teacher and translator. The unpredictability of both street genre and film is what ignites my imagination and leads me to the new discoveries.

It takes a look uncompromisingly captures slices of life, out of the box and goes beyond the clichés.

Originally from Portugal I've been traveling around the Asia Pacific region since 2010, and have settled in Malaysia for the time being. My first camera was a Bilora Bella 66 that my grandpa gave me over 30 years ago. After a long interlude, in which I dealt only with digital cameras and workflow, I realized a break from digital image processing would be a good experience. And here i am, with that feeling that you're back to the roots, back home, and thinking about darkroom printing again.

Philipp Wortmann

Pierluigi Tolu

When I’m out shooting, everything from my daily life is magically erased; I’m completely immersed in the photographic world, and nothing else. It’s a sort of parallel world that has the ability to relax me and free my mind. It’s something magical….

Some biographical text here please, Bob!

Roger Harrison

These days I mostly shoot film, especially with a Hasselblad 503CX and various 35mm cameras, including Olympus SLRs, a couple of Olympus rangefinders, a Contax G1 and various others. I also use a Crown Graphic 5x4.Seascapes tend to dominate my photographs. I blame my father for this, as it was his obsession I inherited. I live in Barry, a seaside town in the Vale of Glamorgan, Wales. There are 3 beaches within a short walk of my home, each with its own distinct character and, most importantly from my point of view, its own light.Capturing that light on film has become my obsession.
