Many photographers look back at their work at the end of the year, to assess, critique, and, if you’re like me, to convince themselves that they’re moving forward with their work. This year was a bit different in some respects for me, as the end of the year marks the one-year anniversary of my move […]

5 Frames… Of Yosemite on Fuji Pro 400H on a Yashica Mat-124 G (120 Format / EI 400 / Yashinon 80mm f/3.5)
I had a conversation with my housemate about the five places every Californian needs to visit: Los Angeles, San Francisco, the Central Coast, Lake Tahoe, and Yosemite. All are very beautiful and unique, and if you’re able, I’d highly recommend making the pilgrimage to each. I’ve been lucky enough to hit every place on the […]
5 Frames… Of social deprivation in the English West Midlands on Rollei RPX 400 and a Yashica Mat-124G
Growing up in the digital age, I took the leap into film photography a year ago shooting a roll of Rollei RPX 400 on a £5 Praktica. I hated how with the introduction of EVF’s and ‘live view’ there was almost no need to think about how to get the look you wanted so I […]
5 Frames… Of Yosemite National Park on a Yashica Mat-124 G and Kodak Portra 400 (120 Format / EI 400)
In order to reduce the number of folks that are visiting Yosemite National Park due to Covid-19, only a handful of park passes were being released at 7am each day through the Yosemite National Park website.

5 Frames… Of ILFORD Delta 400 Professional (120 Format / EI 400 / Yashica Mat-124G)
There was a time in my life when I shot nothing but film, never professionally but only for my pleasure. My weapons of choice were Nikon F3 for 35mm, a Yashica Mat-124G for 120 film and a Graflex Press 4-¼ x 3-¼ sheet film cameras. Then, came the digital age and like almost everyone else, […]
5 Frames… Of my first time trying Kodak EKTACHROME E100 on a Yashica Mat-124G
From the start of my “film shooters career” I was shooting either negative color film or BW negative film. My favorite emulsions were and still are Kodak Portra 400 for color and Kodak Tri-X 400 for BW shots. It’s staple, one of the most forgiving and beautiful films for my taste. Slide film on the […]
5 Frames… Of ILFORD PAN F PLUS with a little help from Ordnance Survey (120 Format / EI 50 / Yashica Mat-124G)
When the easing of lockdown rules came into play in the UK I was concerned. I didn’t want the nation to rush things and for cases of Covid-19 to increase again. On the other hand though, I was also thankful that it would mean I was free to venture further afield if I chose to. […]
5 Frames… On ILFORD FP4 PLUS (EI 100 / 120 format / Yashica Mat-124G)
“Earlier this year, I came across a couple of rolls ILFORD FP4 PLUS while shopping for a camera strap for my Fujifilm X100F at a local camera store in New Delhi. The moment I laid my eyes on them, I knew I had to grab a few to try them out with the only medium […]
5 Frames… In Brighton on ILFORD Ortho PLUS 80 (EI 80 / 120 format / Yashica Mat-124G)
This small article was born from a meeting, that of my beautiful Yashica-MAT 124 G, just returned from a CLA by a famous American repairman specializing in these pretty cameras and a film that I had not yet seen, nor touched with my hands. We spent 2020 New Year in Brighton, a charming British city […]
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, […]

Over the last few years, I have become a landscape photographer. It was not a conscious choice but now I embrace it.
Travelogue: People of Myanmar, the Kayan and Kayah…
The Kayen and the Kayah. Two groups of people who live in the south-east of Myanmar, formally known as Burma. 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 […]
