Filmneverdie Shooters - An interview with Natalie Vullo and Christian Conitsiotis

January 12, 2016

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

Although we were both born in the eastern states, the "mining boom" has taken us over to Perth. I’m an Engineer and Nat is a Pharmacist.

How old are you?

We're both 22!

How did you become inspired to shoot on film?

Growing up both our parents were slow to jump onboard with digital photography, and so we were exposed to negatives, slides and prints through them. Without knowing much about Lomography cameras or analogue film for that matter we purchased a Diana Mini to have some fun with and our obsession with film grew from there.

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

I tend to shoot on 35mm film and have experimented with effects and infra-red. Nat prefers vintage Polaroid cameras that take Sx70, 600 and Fp100c film. We both have a soft spot for our Polaroid Land Camera 190 so we fight over who gets to shoot on it!

Where do you see the future of analogue photography?

Although digital photography definitely has it's place there's something about shooting analogue and instant film that gives the image it's own character and personality. It's great to see groups like The Impossible Project, Lomography, Revolog and FilmNeverDie providing us with accessible cameras & film to shoot on! As long as there are passionate people driving the production and development of film technology we'll see the community continue to thrive!

Where can we find out more about your work?

Flickr is probably the best place to check us out.
