Filmneverdie Shooters - An interview with Natalie Tabone

So, where do you come from & what do you do for a living?

I was born and raised in Sydney, moved to Melbourne and now reside in Geelong. I'm studying Psychology and work in the Community Sector.

How old are you?


How did you become inspired to shoot on film?

It all started when I received a Polaroid camera for my 16th birthday- I've been hooked ever since.

What format do you shoot? 35mm, Polaroid, 8 x 10 etc

Polaroid and 35mm. I like to experiment with toy cameras and coloured film.

Why do you like this format?

I love how free and easy it is in allowing me to capture moments without thinking too much about it. With film there's no time to get caught up in how something turned out, and the best part is not knowing until weeks or months later. In a world where so much is instantaneous there is a beautiful joy and excitement to be found in waiting for a roll of film to be developed.

Where do you see the future of analogue photography?

There's been a resurgence in analogue photography over the years so I can see more people discovering and rediscovering this medium. There a lot of passionate people out there, including myself, who will never let it die!

Where can we find out more about your work?

I'm in the early stages of developing an analogue photography project which doesn't have a website yet. Until then you can follow me on Instagram @natalie.tabone
