Something for the Connoisseurs out there...

I know some people may find it hard to believe, but FILM is making a comeback!! In the midst of this digital revolution (I have to admit that I find it funny that we are in the midst of a photography revolution where much of the photography is revolting too!!) there are glimmers of hope that proper photography is making a comeback. Yes it's on the fringes, and there is a long way to go, but film-based photography is definitely cooler than it was just a couple of years ago. Much of the new interest has been sparked by Lomography - the art of using cheap plastic cameras which leak light to create unique imagery. There is also a massive resurgence in Polaroid. I have always loved Polaroid and some of the new film stocks are very exciting and can create great results - and it's way more fun than an app on your iPhone!!There have also been huge advances in the variety, sensitivity and quality of standard film stocks too, with Kodak particularly busy producing great new products - which may seem funny seeing that they developed the digital sensor - do they know something we don't?? We have always kept a range a film based SLRs and cameras and love to run rolls through them at regular intervals - in fact much of my own personal project work is done on film!! From the very best Canon EOS SLRs to ancient 110 Kodaks we have the lot, including a rare Canon APS SLR which captures great panoramas. We also have our "designer" Olympus Trip's - immortalised by David Bailey in the 1970's - that have been fully refurbished and restored and which are the ultimate street photography camera - perfect for those candid moments at Weddings or events. They are also the "greenest" cameras we own as they have no need for batteries with their selenium (solar) powered light meters.




We are now offering a range of Wedding Packages that use film and a selection of different cameras to capture something totally unique for your day. You can add these packages onto our normal digital based packages or have them as a stand alone option. They are priced very competitively and would also make the perfect gift for a couple who want something completely different from their special day. With all our packages you get to "mix and match" a range of cameras and film-stocks to suit your own preferences and we can offer an enormous range of prints and albums to complement your unique images. Call or email us for more details and we look forward to creating something special just for you.
