📸Photographer for fun!
I grew up in the 80s so everyone in my family had film cameras. I would go to theme parks or gigs with my friends and it would be normal to have a disposable camera.
In the late 90s/early 00s I was in college studying media and I stopped taking photos and started using a mini DV video camera (which I still have somewhere). I got really into film editing and eventually went to university to study Film Studies where I did a lot of editing on super 8 – which was really fun – partly because of the white gloves I got to wear when handling the film.
I started photography again in around 2012, first with digital and then one day in 2013 I saw a film camera looking at me through an Oxfam shop window. Since then I have had varying degrees of Gear Acquisition Syndrome with some years being more intense than others. You can take a look at my gear here.
I do not process images myself. When I lived in London I took them to Lomography, now that I live in Bristol I take them to Photographique. Both of these places are great and I have never had any issues with my photos.
