Imagine the scene: one night in Tokyo, some Konica employees are drinking in a hostess bar. One of them looks through the bottom of his glass and has a brainwave. ‘Hey!’, he exclaims, ‘Let’s make a camera with a clear lens cover!’
I had purchased a couple of rolls of JCH Streetpan 400 in 35mm but held off shooting the film until I had an opportunity I felt was worthy of its Streetpan name. That opportunity came in…
This is my ever-changing long-term photo essay about Israel and the Palestinian territories. A place so complex and beautiful at the same time. It isn’t always easy or straightforward to put into words but I have done my best to paint
After shooting strictly with a point and shoot camera, I was gifted a Minolta XG-M and Minolta MD Rokkor 50mm f/1.7 kit by a friend. I found myself reaching for film instead of digital for my personal work more and more after that. Digital was beginning to bore me, editing had began to feel cumbersome, […]
If you spend any time checking out landscape photographers online – especially if you’ve been eyeing up 6×17 format photography – you will no doubt have come across the work of today’s interviewee, Jeremy Calow.
Over the past two years, I’ve been pouring everything I had emotionally, physically, and financially into a staged photography series I call “Buffalo Soldier”. My project is…
In March of 2018, I was heading to Oakland and San Francisco for a photo work assignment and decided to do some street photography on my time off while I was up there.
Fujifilm made some nice mid-range compacts, but inexplicably, they are priced like premium compacts. I couldn’t bring myself to pay the prices being demanded for a Natura Classica or a Klasse.
The Contax T2 is hot property, the compact de jour, if you will. The Contax Tvs III is basically a T2 with a zoom lens. It’s also much cheaper, so the Tvs III should also be hot property, right?
I love the Lomography Diana Mini and I’ll stand by this little plastic gal with all my heart, even when nobody else wants to.
A lot of my early digital work was rooted in colour theory, and as a result (despite wanting to limit my film photography to black and white) I have shot through as many different colour films as I could find.
Whenever I go out shooting with film, which seems to be a lot these days, I take my trusty Nikon F2 and the 50mm F/1.4 AI-S. Can I just say that this camera is a bit of a beast?
I’ve always been a little scared of the 28mm focal length (on 135 film/full frame digital). Although perhaps I should say, a little scared and intrigued by it.
When it comes to medium format cameras we’re spoilt for choice. This is not surprising considering that 120 film was the main format used by professionals and enthusiasts alike for a good chunk of the 20th century before 35mm film took over.
For this roll of Kodak Portra, I set out to shoot a series of self-portraits featuring flowers and foliage with my new (to me) Nikon FM and a Nikon Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 lens.
The Contax T3 is so cute and desirable! The problem is that the T3 is crazy-expensive. If you are not wealthy, look away now.
The Contax T2 is the world’s most fashionable camera, apparently. Kendall Jenner uses the T2. Chris Hemsworth uses the T2. Various other celebrities I don’t know use the T2.
A couple of weeks ago, stuck with no gigs for the week and suffering through the anxiety-filled boredom that freelancing can suddenly bring, I decided to fly to New York (only an hour from Toronto) to shoot some street shots.
Let’s start with the elephant in the room – this camera comes with some serious bling. It is in fact, a special gold-dipped version officially called the “Rolleiflex 2.8GX Expression 75 years edition”.
Combining two recent trends, namely de-cluttering and a revival of mid-century technology, I rediscovered a beloved family camera, the Yashica Mat and some expired and now discontinued Kodak Plus X 120 film.
