Like many photographers I began my journey using digital equipment. After years of making digital images I found an old film slr camera and 3 lenses for next to nothing, and so grabbed it. I did some research and found out that film was not dead after all, and seemed like it was gaining in popularity at that. And so, I delved further into it and found I enjoyed it so much more. The feel and sounds of the cameras, the smell of developing chemicals and the fact that I could hold my results in my hands. To me film has a sense of realism, a feeling of involvement, a sense of accomplishment that I was not getting before. To date I have a small collection of various format film cameras and develop my own film. Soon enough I will learn to make my own prints too. I am enjoying the journey that is film photography and will continue the ride as long as there is film.

Certainly using film, for me, is far more gratifying not only in the end result but from the moment I load film into a camera
Bobby Kulik photographs little pieces of his world in hopes that when you see them from your eyes, you will enjoy at least a small portion of what he was privileged to have seen. Kulik hopes that you will be inspired to get up, get outside, and take “A Walk In The Woods”.
Peace, Serenity, Quiet, Calm, Tranquility. There are many words to describe the woods. For me it is my refuge, my go to place for sanity.
