Hi everyone!! Welcome to my Patreon and thankyou for joining me on this journey. I have been taking photos for a long time now. I initially got into photography through borrowing one of my dads old film cameras. The passion grew from there. Digital cameras came into the picture and as they became more capable my focus and interest was drawn to these as a tool of the trade. As my interest in photography grew i slowly and organically moved into surf photography, something that has introduced me to so many amazing people and places. This also however had its downfall. I was shooting so many sequences, firing away like crazy, not slowing down to appreciate what was happening around me. I also felt like I was shooting more for the surfer and less for myself.
Recently I made the decision to by a film camera. An Asahi Pentax 6x7. This was probably the best camera purchase I have ever made. Just looking at the camera it is a thing of beauty. As heavy as a house brick but creates images with so much soul and feeling. It has forced me to slow down, be more thoughtful of the shot. With only 10 frames per roll of film I have no choice but to slow down, getting film developed is not a cheap thing! I find myself looking at everyday life, objects and situations differently. I don't feel the need to capture a million images, just one, with a heart, something that tells a story or moves someone. The portraits on this camera are amazing, the 105mm lens is beautiful. I want to photograph all people. Everyone has a story, whether it be one of joy, sadness, a passion or anything in-between, i want to document this. 
Since purchasing the Pentax I have also aquired a couple more film cameras which will add stand alone images or side photos to the main subject image.

Your support on this journey will assist in the creation of these series of photos bringing you peoples stories that you may not ever get to hear. 

I look forward to meeting you all.
