Essay: It’s all been done before so why bother taking photographs?
I’m constantly getting back to this thought and feel it’s about time to share something with you that comes very close to my inner monologue. You have been warned. I highly doubt that we all have the same motivations to take photographs but it is interesting to explore my own situation and hear your experience, […]
My return to film: Zisis Kardianos
I came back to shooting film three years ago in 2017. For the previous fifteen years I had been shooting digital with a range of cameras, the last one being the Fuji X-T1, which I still use randomly or for special assignments. It is a fine, elegant and reliable machine and the results I was […]

Living in the rich mountainous landscapes full of teak and minerals, together with many other subgroups they are named the Karenni… It feels like time has stood still in this part of the world. A […]

Camera review: 14 years with the “invisible” Nikon FM3a
In January 2006, after 5 or so years of film photography with a combination of cheaper cameras (e.g., a Minolta SRT-101, a Fed-3 and an old Mamiya 35mm), I bought a like-new Nikon FM3A for $429 USD on eBay. Since then it has shot hundreds (if not thousands) of rolls of film, and has accompanied […]

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?!
Reviewing the Rolleiflex 2.8GX Expression 75 years edition (it’s gold!)
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”.
