25-year old Canadian wedding photographer Džesika Devic prides herself as “Toronto’s only authentic vintage wedding photographer” - and for a very good reason.
At first glance, Devic may seem like your usual film photographer who dabbles in digital photography on occasion and takes photos of a myriad of subjects. However, what makes her stand out from the bunch is that she specializes on shooting weddings and engagements using authentic vintage cameras. Her arsenal, which she calls her “secret weapons”, include nine working vintage cameras as well as a digital SLR. On a candid note, she even included her husband Eddie Fizor in her list of “secret weapons” (“very limited edition,” she boasts) because he serves as her “valuable second shooter” at events.
As a child, Devic has always been fascinated with the old photos that her parents keep at the basement of their home in Kitchener, Ontario. Placing high importance on nostalgia, she strives to “perfectly capture your moments of love, pride, and joy, and save them for you in your very own nostalgia vault.”
Here are a few more lovely photographs by the talented Devic!

As a wildlife cameraman and photographer, Ian Llewellyn has worked on a number of television projects. The UK-based lensman breaks free from the strict confines of his profession by engaging in monochrome photography. His personal work is a plethora of abstract and experimental imagery, created in a style distinctly his own. Llewellyn is an ardent user of a Leica Monochrom camera, on which he mounted the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Lens, producing the most imaginative, phantasmic results.
Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.
Just as we love the grainy sound of a vinyl record playing our latest jazz favorites, we choose analog photography for its natural imperfections that remind us so wondrously of our own reality. Its shortcomings are what make an analog photograph so appealing. We talked to Adriano Guimarães Sodré, a 26-year-old cinematographer, DJ, and photographer who carefully composes pictures that capture a solitary moment in its most natural beauty.
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the publication of one of the most influential photography books ever, "Ballet" by the photographer, art director, and graphic designer Alexey Brodovitch. Brodovitch took a series of photos of classical dance in a very unconventional way, using very slow exposure times, trying to catch the true essence of Russian ballets. For this article, I took a series of photos at the Swing Crash Festival in my city, Como, held in June 2015.

Louis-Jacques-Mandé Daguerre's invention made possible photography that is literally and figuratively one of a kind. For every shot fired, the photographer can only do one print. And though the marred by stains, a daguerreotype has the long-lived charm of a museum relic.

2014 has been a good year for me, photographically speaking. I finally realized a few projects I had been dying to try out for a long time and, despite my resolution not to buy new ones, acquired some new cameras.
