A Polaroid should actually be laid flat somewhere dark. I like to tuck ‘em in my armpit for a couple of minutes.
I’ve been obsessed with analogue photography since 1981, when on my sixth birthday I was given a little red camera.
Forty years of shooting film later (it hurt to type that), I am now a film only wedding photographer.
My new course - The Analogue Anarchist’s Guide to Film Photography - does not encourage busting out your best OutKast impression.
It does, however, teach you how to shoot film from beginning to end.
If you want to add analogue photography into your wedding workflow, and have fun doing it, this is for you.
AKA: SHOOT FILM, HAVE FUN
Anyone who wants to shoot film. You may be returning to film after a hiatus, or you could be brand-new.
Either way, this will refresh your memory or fill your brains with a vast amount of information.
I am a wedding photographer, and this course is aimed at those wanting to bring film into the gang.
If you’re not a photographer this course is still for you. You’ll learn all the basics anyway. When I say basics, I mean basics.
We are going back to school with the exposure triangle, the sunny 16 rule, and even how to open a camera.
By the time you’ve finished the course, you’ll be able to confidently shoot film professionally in any situation.
There’s even a lifeline. It comes with a one-hour zoom call with me, your phone-a-friend. You can book your call in with me at any point during the course.
Could be handy for a section you just know you're going to need extra help with (I’m looking at you, slide film. You beautiful but tricky bugger).
Over ten hours of content.
Easy to use app, mirrored online.
Access to the Analogue Anarchist facebook group.
1-hour zoom call for any troubleshooting.
I'm a Gen X punk from London, who is a fan of doing things a little different from the norm.
I studied photojournalism at Central St Martins, where digital wasn't even a thing. From there I was a photojournalist (on film), sports photographer (film) and a paparazzi (same).
When I started weddings I jumped on the digital bandwagon with everyone else. This made me sad and uninspired, so I returned to my film happy place.
Since making this jump, I have so many couples who appreciate the beauty and imperfections of analogue.
I don't miss digital.
Super 8 add-on.
Everything you need to know to add Super 8 films to your workflow. Capture their memories as viewed through a vintage and nostalgic lens.
This imperfect medium, full of jumpiness, grain and joy evokes a bit of the Goonies and cult B movies while simultaneously looking like your grandad shot your wedding film.
It’s more rad than you could even imagine.
