Over the last year I’ve hardly every been without a camera in my hand. For my personal work and just day-to-day stuff I prefer to shoot film. I think when your passion becomes your means of income it’s easy to fall into the trap where it’s a job, does that make sense? Anyway, I love making photos, I have done as long as I can remember. So for me it’s been really important to keep track of why I do what I do, keep that passion going and just have fun with it.
A fair bit has been going on behind the scenes that I haven’t said much about, most excitingly I’ve started processing and printing my own work in the darkroom. Rather happy with the result thus far and pleased to have some of my prints included in a upcoming exhibition. I’ve also been documenting more and more bits, walks we’ve been on, spending time with some of the family, the dogs and our fat cat Busy. With all of that adding up, I thought I might start a personal blog series here – Our Life on Film. So welcome to it, the first edition! This is a collection of images I made during January – March 2016.
