This roll is the peak moment of my path to purchasing the camera I was dreaming about for a long time – the Mamiya 7. And also my entry to medium format film. My journey, from deciding to buy this camera, to actually buying the notoriously expensive Mamiya rangefinder, was […]
5 Frames… At Bull Island on Kodak T-MAX 100 and my Mamiya 6 (120 Format / EI 100 / Mamiya 75mm / f3.5)
The lockdown has been a big lesson for me, in that I have come to appreciate the little things in life. Photography is my hobby (some would say obsession) and it takes me to another world, away from the normal every day. I enjoy the gear, the chemicals, and more […]
5 Frames… Of my return to black and white film photography on Kodak T-MAX 100 (35mm Format / EI 100 / Nikon N90 + NIKKOR 80-200mm f/4.0)
I am located in La Ceja, a municipality 40 km from Medellín, Colombia’s second city in South America. For my return to the chemical process of black and white film photography, I dusted off my old Nikon N90 camera, which I used commercially in combination with the Nikon F4 in […]
Taking Stock: A shootout with 3 very different color films highlights creative possibilities – Kodak Portra, Fuji C200 and Fuji Velvia 100
I recently acquired a Rollei 35 after dreaming about shooting with this ultra-compact camera and its legendarily sharp Carl Zeiss lens for many years. I was able to score a great deal on a lightly used “Made in Germany” variant at my local camera shop by trading in an old […]
5 Frames… Around lakes Como and Lugano on expired ILFORD Delta 3200 Professional (120 Format / EI 1000 / Hasselblad 500 C/M + Hasselblad Distagon C T* 50mm f/4)
When you rummage inside your old camera bag and find an unexposed roll of ILFORD Delta 3200 Professional, the urge to try to expose and develop it despite the fact that the expiration date says something like ’12 years before today’, well it comes to you, and how. …and if […]
For new black and white film, say the secret codeword: “Kosmo Foto Agent Shadow”…but is it really a film noir film?
London-based Kosmo Foto recently announced their Kickstarter for a new film stock: Agent Shadow, a 35mm ISO 400 black and white panchromatic film that can be rated to at least EI 3200. The film is penciled in for a September 2021 release and I was lucky enough to be given […]
Adam Scott, the Barcelona-based founder of specialty film brand dubblefilm has just announced the launch of what Star Wars purists might call “despecialized” editions of their film stocks. Called dudubblefilm DAILY and presented in ISO 400 35mm color and black & white versions, the films are available from dudubblefilm’s website […]
December 27th, 2068 Dear Josiah, Thank you for your note. I would wager you already know all this, but I’ll do my best to remember how it all happened since I’ve never been one to miss an opportunity to flap my jaws. Do I remember when the film revolution began? […]
Since I returned to regular use of film, I have been keen to try different cameras and the films now available. KosmoFoto Mono 100 was a successful experiment and I now use this often. I have tried several films with low ISO, starting with ILFORD Pan F Plus and later […]

5 Frames… Of Yosemite on Fuji Pro 400H on a Yashica Mat-124 G (120 Format / EI 400 / Yashinon 80mm f/3.5)
I had a conversation with my housemate about the five places every Californian needs to visit: Los Angeles, San Francisco, the Central Coast, Lake Tahoe, and Yosemite. All are very beautiful and unique, and if you’re able, I’d highly recommend making the pilgrimage to each. I’ve been lucky enough to […]
I recently shot a roll of Cinestill 50D on a sunny, Saturday walk in Zurich. I chose to shoot Cinestill 50D because I had recently watched a review of it on the Analogue Wonderland Youtube channel. Having shot it before and not finding it particularly good, I wanted to shoot […]
My First Roll… Of ILFORD Delta 3200 Professional, 35mm, EI 3200 with a Canon Elan II + Canon 50mm f/1.8
My first roll of film was an exciting one. I had an old 1990s Canon film camera, the Elan II, for years and I had done absolutely nothing with it. I found myself bored with digital photography. It had become uninspiring to me, however, I still wanted to practice my […]

I’ve used my Olympus XA so slowly over the last few months that I only recently developed a roll with some of the images I made with it while in Sofia, Bulgaria over Christmas 2020 last year. I still use the XA for snapshot, point-and-shoot colour images, which in Bulgaria […]

5 Frames … Working with C-41 film during my Frugal Film Project (Konica VX 400 and a Canon AE-1 Program)
It goes without saying that this past year has been a challenging one in more ways than one thanks to the pandemic and its related restrictions. Nevertheless, it has also been a year where innovation and discovery have taken place – at least for me. I signed up this year […]

In October 2019, I traveled to Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, which is the southernmost city of Argentina. These pictures were made on the last day of my trip, during a boat tour through the Beagle channel and a walk on the Bridges Island. It was cloudy that morning and the […]
I started taking photos in 2020 as a hobby, the idea of photography excited me as it was a way to see the city and my Vancouver neighbourhood through a different lens. Growing up my mom loved photography and had always had a Nikon FE around. As a child, I […]
