Un poco más abajo del punto turístico más visitado de la Costa de Oro (el paraíso de los surfers) se encuentra un lugar que ofrece todo el entretenimiento de su hermana norteña (si no más) sin la sensación turística. Justo en la playa y alrededor de edificios de gran arquitectura está una línea de restaurantes y humildes cafés, completados a menudo con música de jazz flotando por las calles.
Broadbeach, como le llaman a este pequeño lugar, definitivamente es para los locales, y para los turistas con gustos interesantes (comunmente esta gente fantástica que se ven cargando cámaras analógicas y carretes adicionales de película ahem) que andan buscando una experiencia con un poco más de originalidad que la escena del ‘Paraíso de los Surfers’. Así que si están de visita en la Costa de Oro, asegurense de ir para el desayuno en Broadbeach, posiblemente permanecer hasta el almuerzo, y hasta sentirse tentado para la cena, tal vez ir a una barra para uno o dos tragos… mejor quedate la noche entera.
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.
Autochrome was one of the first strides toward color photography. The combination of potato starch grains and silver bromide produces a cloudy cast that makes buildings like Villa Bonnier look even more intriguing.
Anna Hollond got her fist camera on her 10th birthday, and she hasn't stopped carrying a camera ever since. About a year ago, she sought to document her memories for her journal but didn't want to do so digitally, and got her first Lomography camera. Next thing she knew, she had a trove of instant cameras, as well as a knack for instant photography.

It's every aspiring photographer's dream: turn one's hobby into a career; quit the part-time job and instead get commissioned to work on your own photography projects.
