Aivaras Sidla

Photography is my hobby. It lets me see the world differently, to notice small miracles in dull environment, to detach from daily life, to recreate inner balance and to remain constantly positive. To sum up photography is a drug for me, and as I mostly shoot film – this drug costs money. Ha ha. While I don't consider myself "big artist” in terms of my shooting results, I try to be active in photography world in order to: -promote photography as an instrument that enriches personal view to the world - I mean that when you start to shoot you start not to look, but to SEE. World becomes more beautiful place to live. - promote film photography and to encourage new users to enter it. I have twofold reasons for it: a) it beautiful and people should try it b) as a means of “self defence” - more users means longer life of film and film cameras in the market :)

Alastair Bird

Born and raised in Vancouver, Canada, Alastair has been shooting professionally for the last 15 years. Although he uses the latest technology for his commercial work, his personal work is very much ruled by analog technology. This is partly because he is an incurable romantic when it comes to film, but mostly because film is just so much fun.

Alex Kurganov

I'm a self-taught photographer based in Prague, CZ. My favorite subject is landscape, but I tend to photograph whatever captures my eye or imagination.

Alexis Analog

I don’t practice film photography in a professional manner. Which means that to this day I save it for the personal share of my time. So I am not eiher the madman leaving Noe’s Arch, to confront the gale force winds and high waters of the “near end of this world” storm with my racing breaststroke technique…

Allan Silva

Andreas Zieroth

I'm a Berlin based hobby photographer shooting landscapes, traveling, portraits and daily banalities on digital, mobile and of course analog gear. Always curious about shooting unusually or expired film stuff what my sticky fingers can get on. Amazed and happy about that roaring analog occurrences nowadays. So spread the word and shoot film.

Andreea Andrei

My work focuses on social documentary, portraiture and fashion photography sometimes, and seeks to explore the complex relationship between subject and photographer. I'm driven by the curiosity that lies between a real moment that unfolds before your eyes and how you can freeze that moment in a photograph. I'm interested in personal projects that I can relate to. I like to know the person and try to make a deep connection with them before photographing them.

Andrew Whitehurst

Andrew Whitehurst is a visual effects artist who lives in London. He likes mechanical cameras and film designed before 1955.

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.

Anthony Chatain

I live and work in France. After 10 years using exclusively digital cameras, I came back to analog photography with the willingness to experiment with different film formats, to slow down my picture taking habits and to renew with this aspect of randomness and delayed discovery of the result inherent to film development.

Antoine Wallet

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.

Barry "Stardust" Gibb

It's Benice, not Bernice. Let's get that straight. I was born in was known as Czechoslovakia in June 1932. My parents were immigrants who named me after the area of Prague where they first met.

I have been in the branch of photography since 2005, and I specialize in street, landscape and travel photography.Being an enthusiast of film photography, 35mm and medium format, I like to mix analog and digital processes in my production.

Chris Chinnock

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 Marinelli

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.

Daphne Schnitzer

Daphne Schnitzer is an ex-lecturer in modern Literature, a Sumi-e lover and an enthusiastic, some would say obsessive, pinhole photographer whose path always seem to lead to a harbor to shoot seascapes from, be it in Israel or in France (so far). She uses various pinhole cameras, sporting either pins or zone plates, in both medium and large format, but is especially partial to 6x6 images captured on Kodak Portra 400 or Ektar 100 film.

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.

Dave Varo

I suppose I’m a born again photographer, having come back to the art about 10 years ago after a gap of around 25 years. I use both digital and analogue media, as I think both have their uses. I also develop all my own black and white film, and also print black and white in the darkroom, as I don’t think that digital black and white prints have the same quality as silver gelatin ones. I think I’ve got a bad case of GAS, as in the last two years since I started using film I’ve amassed 11 cameras, from 35mm through to 5x4.

David Toman

I'm a self-described "socially adept introvert" for whom photography is my favorite form of interaction with others. Born in New York, I lived most of my life in Taiwan and now reside in California. Former athlete, former translator, lifelong photographer.

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).

denys trofimchuk

My name is Denys Trofimchuk, I am a Brooklyn, NY based photographer. I am originally from Ukraine, but have been living in United States for the last 7 years. I started shooting film 2 years ago with Holga TLR, because I was in a rut - creatively - and lost my passion. Now about 70% of my work is shot on film, mostly Arista 400- cause shooting it in bulk is cheap! I do portraits, models tests and some personal work, mostly street and documentary. My little camera collection includes Bronica ETRSi, Canonet QL19, Nikkormat FTN and Fujifilm X Pro 1 for the digital work ( this camera made me love digital again and i highly recommend it to those, who lust for digi Leica). I develop and scan my own film, mostly with Adox Adonal and EpsonV 600.

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.

Erik Gould

Erik Gould was born and raised in upstate New York, and now lives in Pawtucket, Rhode Island with his wife and young daughter. He is the museum photographer for the Museum of Art at the Rhode Island School of Design.

Etienne Despois

My name is Etienne, I just turned 37 and I’m still doing film photos! I love the idea to take time and not shoot as much as you can ‘till you get the result you’d like. Shooting films obliges you to think before and to be patient waiting for the result (the patience becomes something that is being lost nowadays…).

Eugene Keogh

For as long as I can remember I always wanted to be some sort of photographer. A friend's father gave me an enlarger and a box of darkroom stuff when I was a teenager and that was it, I was hooked.

Fabian Schmid

Fabian Schmid is a photographer from Bern, Switzerland, with an emphasis on travel, landscape and editorial photography. Ever since he started off in photography, travel and the encounters on his travels have been his primary source of inspiration. It was also what brought him into photography in the first place. He has shifted his focus from digital back to analog photography during the last few years. It’s the distinct look, the colors and – perhaps most importantly – the slowing down in the process that fascinate and motivate him. He works with small, medium and large format film, mainly with a Hasselblad 503 CW and a Leica M6 rangefinder camera. A while ago, he got into darkroom printing and now offers a carefully curated selection of hand-made fine art prints for purchase. Besides working on personal projects, he takes on commissioned photography work in various fields.

Frank H. Wu

Frank H. Wu started shooting on film at the age of five, in suburban Detroit circa 1972. He made a Quaker Oats pinhole camera. But he pursued other professions and hobbies, and he only recently returned to photography. His writing has appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, LA Times, Chicago Tribune, Huffington Post, and many other outlets, and his images are on display at the Microsoft Theatre LA Live venue.

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.

Gianluca Bevacqua

Henry J. McCracken

Astronomer at l'Institute d'Astrophysique de Paris. Interested in all kinds of images.

Holger Feroudj

Ian Bartlett

Despite having been around for half a hundred years, shooting images for at least 30 of those, I would say that I haven't settled on a single genre of photography. I call myself a landscape photographer, and this will always be my calling, because my formative years were spent in the hills of northern England, but, as you can see from my timeline, I turn my lens on a wide range of subjects. I think this is a 'good thing'. Heartened to see that my eldest teenager is now getting into this art form (and she has quite an eye), so something has rubbed off. Another good thing.

Ian Christie

Ian Christie is a landscape photographer from Kincardine Ontario, Canada.

Ignacio Gomez Sales

Ioana Tăut

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.

Louis Sousa

I live in Bristol, Rhode Island and the sea is a big part of my life. I have sailed on it and swum in it and fished in it and it is the inspiration for much of my photography.

I´m Ludwig Hagelstein, a 23 year old college student and photographer based in Bamberg, Germany. Photography, especially chemical photography with all its aspects is my passion, and avocation. I do various portrait and editorial jobs for small magazines and clients; both on film and digitally.

Luis Barrancos

I'm a software developer and shader writer, working in the computer graphics for visual effects / animation industry. 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.

It wasn’t until I started my Masters degree that I realised that it wasn’t always the subject that I was shooting that was important to me, more the method of capture. Even the fact that I was using film wasn’t a huge deal – it was the actual cameras that I was using.Electronic technology all got pushed to the wayside in favour of the mechanically operated. The Olympus OM-1, Kodak Brownie Six-20, Olympus Trip 35, Mamiya 4b…amongst many, many others…I now shoot much of my work using home made or custom commissioned pinhole cameras, developing my own colour and black and white film and paper negatives.

Oliver Grimm

In the middle of my forties I'm some kind of late bloomer. Photography itself came to me in a very strong episode of a clinical depression 2015. Soon this kind of distraction became my second great passion in life—through the viewfinder I saw the whole world in a new and exciting way. I'm shooting whatever catches my attention.

Olli Thomson

I photograph the world I find myself in. That world changes every two or three years so I'm always starting again, discovering somewhere new, evolving my photographic style. I am a photographer of places, most often urban spaces. I am drawn to architecture and design, whether on the grand scale of palaces, churches and skyscrapers or the reassuringly mundane office and apartment blocks of suburbia.

Paul Bradshaw

Originally from England, Paul has worked in Hong Kong as a photographer and designer for the last 13 years. During this time, his business projects have involved working with international luxury brands. However, for his personal work he likes to get far from the world of glossy commercialism and produce raw, gritty and true images. He often uses fast 35mm black and white film with mechanical camera gear; the compact size and manual operation of this equipment allows images to be made quickly and instinctively, even under challenging conditions.

Paul Lewis

Raised in Cleethorpes in the United Kingdom, I am a practising documentary photography, film historian/critic and lecturer. I have been fascinated with photography for as long as I can remember and particularly enjoy shooting street photography in my free time.

Philip Harrison

Phil spent 25 years as a professional photographer after leaving Photographic College in the mid 1970’s. In his early years, he worked as a medical photographer, based in a hospital in the north of the UK and later came upon a change of direction to industrial photography and film/TV production. In the late 90’s Phil gave up professional photography and trained as a Train Guard, retiring a few years ago. He mainly uses "standard" lenses (50mm/80mm/150mm depending on format) with his cameras. He feels this makes him work harder and the resultant images are better. He doesn't specialise with his photography, enjoying photographing anything that appeals.

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….

Rana Yalcın

I'm Rana Yalcin. I used to live in Istanbul, but know I live and shoot in Maryland. I started shooting film two years ago with a camera that my grandfather gave me. I learned how to use it because I thought it looked cool. Yes, I started shooting film because of it but it turned out to be so much more than that. I still learn new stuff about film everyday and I’m loving it.

Robert Marsters

Some biographical text here please, Bob!

Robert Versteegen

I shoot film because it gives more than just digital clicking and looking on the back screen, it slows you down, you have to take photographs more carefully. I’am not a hot shot or a great photographer but I like it very much, to experiment to search for the unexpected in common subjects. in the early 2000 i went over to digital but lately, I got the viral infection of film and darkroom again.

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

Scott Hays

Scott McClarin

I don't subscribe to any one technology or specific camera system for image creation, after all it's about the image and the emotion shared or discovered, but I do prefer hand made prints from a darkroom for the enjoyment of the artifact of expression as much as the Image expressed.

Steven J Parkes

I enjoy taking photos of a variety of subjects so there is a spread of those across this website and my Flickr pages.After reading many books, the main thing I have learnt is photography is subjective, so I make no apology for any images that you consider to be poor.I take photos with digital cameras, film cameras and telephones, with a particular like for film, I just wish I did more of it.

Stian-René Espeland

My name is Stian , Norwegian born and bred in the great year of 86. I've spent most of my life sailing all over the world on merchant vessels, but the last three years I've been working on the coast of Norway. When I started working on the Norwegian coast I was struck by the beauty of it and I wanted to capture it all in photos so I bought my self a digital camera and learned how to use it. When my grandmother passed a year later I inherited a photo album. I was amazed at seeing these beautiful and "unperfect" black and white pictures of her as a teenager and I started thinking about how few real photos there were of me and my family to leave behind. I started the search for a vintage camera as I also wanted to make real pictures to leave behind, and this led me down the maelstrom that is analog photography. Which again has led me to this point...

Stig Starr

Svein Olav Humberset

I am a 36 year old photograper from Norway. Started out shooting sports with digital gear, and slowly but surely the 4-500 shots I came home with after each game started eating parts of my soul. So to counter my souleating, I started looking towards analog cameras and the slow process that makes you feel that YOU took that shot, and not the camera. The last 2 years I have shot as much film I could and have been on the search for the perfect camera for me. So far the RB67 (or RZ67) are in the lead.

Tim Heubeck

My ultimate purpose in photography is to show the world how it looks through my eyes while capturing a timeless feel of the world. It is less about how things we are familiar look like, than moreover with what lays beyond the surface. Experiences, memories and encounters forming our life and consequently who we are.

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.

Vincent Moschetti

I'm Vincent, a French photographer. One day, I woke up and decided to sell all my digital cameras and commit to film for at least a year. Since then I got the film bug and the project One Year With Film Only has turned into On Film Only. I suffer from a severe G.A.S. but not really looking forward to get cured.

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.
