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.

Antonio Biagiotto

Hailing from Northern Italy, Antonio is a moslty medium format photographer working in 6×7 using his Pentax 67ii. Antonio is as enthusiastic about photography as he is passionate and has an immense body of work, which captures Italy’s beautiful countryside, as well as its urban sprawl.

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

I love taking photographs of people. On film. Yes, they still make film. For all the gear-nerds out there, I use an old Mamiya RB67 medium format camera and a Minolta XD7 for 35mm. I live in Würzburg, Germany and if you want to make some images or have any questions feel free to contact me.

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).

Dizzy Cow

Pure and simple, I chase the light and take images of just about anything that catches my fancy, no matter the genre. I am all about finding those gold nugget moments in life and capturing them through photography.

Don Kittle

I'm Don Kittle and I am a freelance photographer based in Toronto, Canada. I love connecting with people and learning of their lives. Photography is a great venue for doing this and it helps to bring out the real you in your photographs. My love of nature is featuring more and more in my photographs. As you'll see in the portraits gallery, I really enjoy getting people out in nature and photographing them in dramatic settings.


Self confessed film-freak and filmphotography mad-obsessive. I push, pull, shoot, boil and burn film everyday, and I want to share what I learn. It might not all be right but it's a start.

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….

Ribnar Mazumdar

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.

Roy Fochtman

Tom Rayfield

Photographer with a passion for shooting (and developing) medium format film.

Toni Skokovic

I am a Toronto, Canada, based enthusiast photographer. Railroads and nature have always fascinated me, a strange combo. With a lack of drawing talent, photography is the only way for me to attempt at capturing what I see and how I feel about the world around me. I have discovered film photography just recently (2015). To me, film offers unique ways to extend creative possibilities and build more technical discipline.

Virgil Roger

I'm a young, self taught photographer, inexorably drawn to analog grain and black and white prints. Geometry soothes me while people rather scare me, I see the world as a multitude of details, sounds and images, and can't seem to shoot color. Coffee and HP5+ fuel me, always a camera by my side.

Walter Rothwell

Walter has exhibited in Britain, Europe and the USA and has work held in private collections and the collection of the Bibliothèque Nationale de France. He is a member of the Street Photography International collective.


Film waster, Instax lover, cheating with digital once in a while. I believe in photos that you can hold in your hands.All instax in my tweets are my own.
