Filmneverdie Shooters - An interview with Bryce Wilson

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

I was born and raised in country Victoria, but have spent the last three years living in Brunswick. I worked in marketing and public relations since 2012. 12 months ago my role was made redundant, and I have been pursuing a career in freelance photography, filmmaking, and photojournalism since.

How old are you? 

I am 25.

How did you become inspired to shoot on film?

I drew inspiration to use film from the work of Tim Hetherington, a conflict photojournalist who was killed in Syria in 2012. I began using film cameras in 2014, and have done so since. I love the intimacy of photographing with and developing my own black and white films, and have used my Hasselblad and Leica for fun, and professionally.


Where do you see the future of analogue photography?

Analog photography will remain a niche market in photography. Much in the same way that oil painting and watercolour can co-exist, analog and digital industries will too. Stores such as FilmNeverDie foster great communities and working environments that help with the resurgence of the medium, and we're all extremely fortunate to have them.

What is a dream project that you want to work on?

My dream project was to provide reportage from the front lines of a conflict zone, and I achieved that in 2015 and 2016 as a combat photojournalist in Ukraine's east. I have since had my work published by ABC Australia, and will be returning to the conflict zone in October to produce a documentary, and more reportage. I am working on gallery exhibitions, and hope to teach and encourage others with my work and journey.

Where can we find out more about your work?
