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.

As usual, the TVS was a… Continue reading One Day in NYC with the Contax TVS Digital

Travelling light means when getting around life is much easier, it's only a simple reach into the bag to pull out a camera and fire off some frames… Continue reading One Day in Port Douglas with the Ricoh GR
