What was your first experience shooting with film? Do you remember the camera/film that was used?

I used to shoot film from the very late 90s to the mid 00’s to capture graffiti but wasn’t taking photography as a hobby, it was more to document the graffiti that we were doing. I can’t remember the cameras I owned but the last camera I brought before the digital era was a Pentax MZ60 which I remember cause I still own.

What do you enjoy shooting with currently?

I like shooting anything I can get my hands on but currently I’m enjoying my Olympus om1 and the Soviet camera Zenit E

Name a few photographers you find inspiring and recommend that people should check out.

So many to mention, there seems to be an abundance of great photographers and I’m constantly finding more talented people daily.

A few that inspire me are:

What is it that you like about analog photography? 

Probably like most people I imagine, I like the fact you don’t get instant gratification and that you think about your shot more because you’re not going to waste 50 shots and sorting through them once you get home. I prefer the feel of using a analog camera over a digital camera

I borrowed my cousins Nikon SLR after I had seen a few photos and wanted to try it out for myself. I put in hp5 and went on a walk around the city. The camera had a broken winder, light leaks and I opened the back door too early. there were probably only a couple of useable photos but that seemed like enough to get me my own camera.

What do you enjoy shooting with currently?

The go-to right now is my Olympus xa. Fits in my palm super durable and gives me rangefinder control.

What is it that you like about analog photography?

Analog gives the extra step to play around and experiment with a photo. I can cut scratch and burn into negatives creating effects that can’t be seen anywhere else. Because of that Images that I wouldn’t usually bat an eye towards can later turn out to be my favourite pieces. I would just need to find old negative and chop it up into something else. A process that would never happen if I shot digital.
