Greetings and welcome to this week’s fresh EMULSIVE interview – number 211 to be specific. I have great pleasure in introducing you to the words and work of erstwhile philosopher, Graham Spinks. It’s over to you, Graham. Hi Graham, what’s this picture, then? GS: This photo was taken at the National Trust’s Canons Ashby earlier this […]
Welcome to 2020 here on EMULSIVE! I hope you all had a peaceful ringing in of the new year. For my part, I was in bed ten minutes after the fireworks finished. I’m pleased to be able to kick off the year off with my first film photographer interview of 2020: number 210 to be […]
While studying art in college I found the sport of Muaythai, the National Sport of Thailand. I started practicing to get my self in shape and being a college kid eating terrible, as well as destroying my body with cigarettes and alcohol, I knew it was a change I needed. If my time was not […]
Since the publication of my original book, “Nikon Film Cameras, Which one is right for you?”, I’ve acquired a number of additional cameras and lenses which I describe and evaluate from personal experience in the newly released second edition, which recently went live on Amazon. In addition to the extra hardware, I tracked the prices […]
It all started with curiosity. While shopping online to refill my fridge with film for the summer season, I noticed a new film announced at one of the online shops: Spur Ultra with a resolution of 800 LP/mm. I can hardly resist trying new things out, it’s a gene in my family. My dad bought […]
I was a Kodak Gold 200 user forever. I’m not really sure why. I think it might have been taking those purple and yellow 3-packs out of my mom’s camera bag from a young age.
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.
Halfway through… six months in already? How did that happen… didn’t we just start? Actually, we are settling into our routine but the bloom is off the rose…
I can’t begin to tell you how happy I am to finally bring today’s interviewee to these pages.
On the Summer Solstice of 2017, I took these five photographs on one roll of Agfa Precisa CT 100, my Pentax K1000 and SMC Pentax-M 1/2 50mm lens.
I’ve been shooting film for more than 10 years, with some pause when I preferred to be in front of the lens, not behind it.
I’ve known today’s interviewee online for a few years now, and even had the pleasure of meeting her back in 2018*.
Paris is my favourite city for photography and I go there as often as I can. For shooting film, I like to take my smaller film bodies.
It’s a beast, this Pentax. It weighs a ton and it’s hard to hang on to. It’s slow, has a terrible synch speed and everything is in full stops.
Please be aware that some subjects and depictions in this story may be uncomfortable reading. I make no apology for that, but please go into this with your eyes open.
As a teenager (I’m 55 now) I was the kid that was always carrying a camera – a Pentax K1000 that my grandfather gave me – and at the time I thought that’s where my career would be.
If I am not shooting a Half Frame Camera, there is an overwhelming probability that I am shooting a Pentax instead.

Looking back on the track for a little green bag (a little green box of film actually ☺).
I’ve been into photography for about two years, using a digital Canon. I was doing mostly long exposures and street photography.
