About Stephen Dowling

Thank you for supporting Kosmo Foto.

Kosmo Foto began as a blog at the start of 2012, an outlet for me to write about my film photography and some of the cameras I used to shoot film with.

It’s become something much more.

Nearly 10 years later, the blog is at the heart of the Kosmo Foto universe. Here you’ll find film photography news, camera reviews, posts from contributors all around the world and stories from the long and rich past of analogue photography.

As many of you will know, Kosmo Foto has also become a film brand, and has recently launched a YouTube channel to bring the joys of film photography to a new audience.

The blog and YouTube channel take a considerable amount of money to keep going – software and hosting, theme subscriptions, film processing, video editing software, paying editors for the more ambitious videos. Plus there’s sending out rolls of film to the Kosmo Foto contributors (two rolls of film for every story published – get involved).

The more I can have these costs taken care of by the likes of Patreon subscriptions, the more it frees me up to create the posts and videos you’re here to enjoy.

Thanks to each and every one of you who helps – it’s hugely appreciated.
