ABOUT

If you're shooting and developing film in this digital age, it means you GET IT: the slower process, the tactile chemical reactions, the self satisfaction of performing "magic" of a sort. If you're not shooting or developing film... it actually doesn't take too much to get started, so let me help pave the way for you!

This "adventure in film photography" is an ongoing project to encourage and aid myself and others toward shooting and developing film. As someone who works with digital media for a living, I'm actively decreasing the time I spend using digital devices (with at least a small part of my life) in order to slow down and embrace the much more calculated and disciplined analogue format.

I'm not a pro. In film photography and development there is always more to learn and more to try. What you capture can sometimes be unpredictable. Or it can be exactly what you predicted. There are right ways, wrong ways, indifferent ways, strong preferences, best practices, guidelines, rules to follow, and rules to break. So don't get caught up in that stuff. You do You and have fun! And please feel free to reach out!
