Where do you come from & what do you do for a living?
I was born in Sydney but grew up in a small town in Queensland called Hervey Bay. I moved to Brisbane this year to study Photography.
How old are you?
How did you become inspired to shoot on film?
I grew up using disposable film cameras at school camps but that was my only real exposure to film and at such a young age I was oblivious to the whole process. Ever since I was about 10 or 12, all I used were digital cameras. With digital photography, it always felt like something was missing but it all made sense when I picked up a TLR last year because of something I saw on the internet.
What format do you shoot? 35mm, Polaroid, 8 x 10 etc?
I shoot 35mm primarily because of the low cost but I love different formats for the different spaces it puts you in. Whenever I can afford it, I love to shoot Fp-100c and impossible film.
Why do you like this format?
I love film because of the process, the imperfection and the experimental capabilities. It's so much more intimate than digital photography and I feel like the work I produce with film is more substantial. I only really shoot digital in situations where I'm not yet 100% confident to shoot film or when I'm not doing personal work.
Where do you see the future of analogue photography?
Hopefully the community will grow and film & chemicals will not be discontinued at such a devastating rate. I don't see the community dissipating any time soon with so many enthusiasts and the increasing exposure and recognition of analogue photographers.
