These pictures were taken on a lazy walk after work on a warm summer’s evening. There was a lovely glow in the air and people were relaxed. I did my best to capture the easy vibe with my Zorki-4, Jupiter-8 and a roll of Agfa Vista 200, aka Poundland film.Read more "Summer evening in Bristol"
These photos are film a film I shot in June but only recently got processed. I normally process all my own films at home but this was one was a slide film and I send those away. I don’t have the chemicals required to process colour slides and I definitely don’t have the patience to […]Read more "Playing catch-up"

I took a Zorki 4 rangefinder with Jupiter 8 and Jupiter 12 lenses and my Canon EOS 600D DSLR with Canon EF-S 17-85mm […]Read more "A foggy day in Bristol town"

I’ve done the bare minimum of editing with these pictures – they are rough and ready, and exactly as they came out of the camera (a 1956 Zorki-4 rangefinder with […]Read more "Project 35 – Out now!"
I started Project 35 on 22nd August. If all had gone to plan, I would have finished the film on the 26th September. However, nothing ever goes to plan. I’ve only used about half the film so far. I’ve been busy, I’ve been ill, I had time off work and accidentally left my camera on my desk. […]Read more "Project 35 – hopefully resuming soon!"
