Where did your passion for film photography start?

Good Question, it all all started 6/7 years ago with a Pentax K1000 mounted with a 50mm F1.7 Lens. I had been shooting with a Nikon DSLR before that but the K1000 took over and I was hooked. I’m now own my second K1000, a Nikon FM , a Canon FTQL and a Pentax PC35AF.

How did you get on shooting with the LC-A+ ?

I’ll be honest It took a while to get used to from what I am used to shooting, however this camera is AMAZING for street photography. It’s compact and fits in your pocket, I loved the fact you could do double exposures on it the feature is a plus. It’s a pukka camera for its size!

What did you choose to shoot?

The City of Freedom AKA Berlin, I was there for new year. The city has two sides, one side comes across as quite new and other is the original Berlin, personally I preferred this side as there was a lot more character.

What’s coming up in 2018?

I shoot both with digital and film depending on the project, I do however intend shooting more film during 2018. I recently went through the painstaking task of cutting my work down to my best in order to have a nice clean portfolio. I want to tell stories during 2018 so my work flow is certainly going to be slower but of higher quality.
