In this new ongoing series "5 Questions on Analogue Photography with…" we send out the same set of questions to photographers. This time, Taylor Roberts – an independent professional photographer – answered these and sent along a selection of his work.
Name: Taylor Roberts
Occupation: Independent Professional Photographer
1. Tell us something about yourself.
I’m terribly shy at times and people never suspect that. My family is my heart and my muse for 90% of my photographs. I’m more likely to be found taking a random drive then up in bar on a Friday night.
2. Why do you still shoot analogue?
I still shoot analogue because it’s fun and a challenge at the same time. Digital has come a long way, but there’s a look film provides that digital just can’t touch.
3. What photographic equipment (cameras, films, and accessories) do you usually have in your bag?
Well, of course I always keep my Sprocket Rocket in my bag! The other one is a standard Canon Rebel 35mm SLR. I also make sure to keep at least 4-5 rolls of whatever expired film I can get my hands, though I am partial to T-MAX B&W films.
4. Share a trick of yours that will always result to a great photo.
Constantly change your view point. Get loooow.
5. Which photographers influence your work?
Elliot Erwitt, Annie Leibovitz, Irving Penn, Vincent Laforet and anyone else whose work catches my eye!
