Filmneverdie Shooters - An interview with Gregorios Papanastasiou

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

I was born and raised in the inner northern suburb of Thornbury and still reside here in my family home.
I'm currently studying a Bachelors of Music Performance at Collarts in south Melbourne, I'm taking the songwriter course as a guitarist, and play solo acoustic sets in and around Melbourne.

How old are you?

I'm 23 years young.


How did you become inspired to shoot on film?

I've always had an observant inclination which i think i inherited from my older brother who also has had a predisposition with photography albeit digital, the analogue part comes in when i picked up an old Minolta 7s at a garage sale a few years ago without initial intent to shoot on it.

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

I've only shot with 35mm but would love to get into 120.



Why do you like this format?

Its easy to use, cheap and easy to scan for digital use.

Where do you see the future of analogue photography?

I think analogue photography defiantly has a long future alongside digital. I like to compare photography to learning guitar, wherein analogue is like playing with an acoustic guitar, it teaches you proper technique and composition without the distractions and once you know those fundamentals you can go electric guitar or digital and get way out there with effects and settings, although you'll still want to go back to analogue for a more flowing, simplistic approach.


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

My dream project would be too shoot untouched landscapes in remote locations around the world.

Where can we find out more about your work?
