We’ve all become enamored with the glitz and glamour we see of on-assignment photographers.

There are, however, photographers who prefer to shoot analogue and are oblivious to the lure of digital imagery. Here are a few photographers who have chosen film as their go-to medium, and and the Petzval as their ally.
