Early in the North American winter of 2018, I was lucky enough to spend a couple of weeks in NYC and Washington D.C. While there, I shot roughly twenty rolls of film mostly Kodak Portra 400, Fujifilm Superia 400 and Ilford HP5.
Since beginning my switch to film in mid-2017, I've tried a handful of different film stocks from budget to pro in a variety of cameras. This short list are my favourites to shoot street and any other kind of photography!
This short project was shot over a few weekends at the famous and during the summer months often crowded Torquay Surf Beach. It examines this beautiful location's appeal to local, tourist and weekender alike through exposing the surf and sun culture mixed with documenting the crowds on the beach street style. It was shot entirely on a plastic fantastic Olympus 35mm point and shoot loaded with cheap Fujifilm Superia XTRA 400 film.
I was lucky enough to head into Melbourne's CBD to check out White Night, the free festival that Melbourne puts on where they project, colourise and generally sex up key buildings around the place. It was crazy packed and allowed me to get a couple of street snaps while out and about.
The 40mm M-Rokkor lens is a real hidden gem of true Leica pedigree, even if it wears a Minolta badge. It's sharp, it's moody and has a tiny focus throw enabling you to focus with a rangefinder very, very quickly. It's my favourite lens ever!
I recently received a little known camera from Japan, the Olympus OZ10 point and shoot. Continuing my obsession with point and shoot film cameras I picked this little plastic fantastic up for the $AUD equivalent of a Red Bull and a meat pie. It’s little beauty and a true hidden gem of the Olympus compact line of the mid-1990s
