Why I Still Shoot Film


Something inspiring happens when I shoot using analogue cameras. Loading film takes me back to the time I spent studying photography, learning the art and science. I whiled away afternoons in the darkroom with smelly chemicals and looking on in delight as images gradually appeared, as if by magic.  

I take the discipline of shooting on film seriously. It brings a whole new perspective to my photography. It forces me to slow down, which is a good thing in this day and age. Graininess and little imperfections on the images are charming and turn each photograph into something organic and unique.

Simply put, shooting film takes me off into a different world, a world which is out of the ordinary.
