When I first started photography as a serious hobby I was shooting a Fujifilm X10 digital camera.

The eagle-eyed amongst you will recognise today’s interviewee from his excellent and much-discussed review of the Bronica GS-1 system; as well as the beautiful images which accompany it.
Today we’ve got a little treat for you in the form of Nik, aka unsavouryandgrouse. Nik’s a relatively new film shooter and based in Australia.
Today’s interviewee stumbled into film photography as a result of not wanting to be left out of all the fun that was going on around her.

Today we’re sitting down with the one and only Jennifer Henriksen, or as you may better know her, mastermind and overlord of Holga Week, HolgaJen.
