The honesty in film photography - by Simon King

The Honesty in film photography

After some recent discussions with my peers, I’ve started to feel that “honesty” is an underrated quality in many genres of photography. I’ve given the topic a lot of thought, in order to take some personal steps to ensure my integrity, especially when it comes to what is shown in […]

Taking a chip off the old creativity block - by Chris Dixon

Taking a chip off the old creativity block

Writer’s block, creative slow-down, work paralysis – call it what you will but, as people who rely on a steady flow of creative juices to make a living, we will each face creative block at some point. It can manifest in many forms and have many causes, but the terror […]

…and here’s everything in order of publication

Life gets busy. Here’s everything from September in one single list.

Rants: There's no such thing as 120mm film...

There’s no such thing as 120mm film…

Let’s be as clear as possible: there is no such thing as “120mm film”. Medium format roll film for cameras like Hasselblads, Rolleiflexes and Pentax 67s, is called “120”. That simple ~120-year-old designation is all you ever need to use. This isn’t going to be a big revelation to many […]

Camera review- The Canon SURE SHOT Z135 - by Tom Perry

Camera review: The Canon SURE SHOT Z135

It has come to the point in my life where I am the ‘camera guy’ to family and colleagues; I will not lie to you, I have brought this on myself, and knew it would happen. When Christmas or a birthday rolls around, I get camera-themed goods. At work I’d […]

Travelling with film: my Sri Lankan travelogue

Travelling with film: My Sri Lankan travelogue

I suspect it’s a common dilemma, you’ve booked a holiday with your partner (and or family/friends) and there’s no doubt the destination was influenced by potential photographic opportunities. How on earth are you going to balance wanting to take lots of photos with what other people want to do?!

Thanks for reading!
