At first I just took pictures, I wasn’t really a photographer; I was a skateboarder, a cyclist, a snowboarder, a climber, a sailor, a husband, a father, an engineer but not a photographer. My photographs were average despite using a camera on a daily basis.
Enter the battered, £12 Minolta 7000i SLR and a few rolls of film. This clunker showed me just how little I knew about how to take a picture and slowed me down enough to start actually learning. I started from the basics and taught myself photography, this was four years ago and today my obsession with film photography is stronger than ever.
I share articles, projects and competitions (both film and digital) on my blog at www.badbeaglephotography.com.
I shoot everything from half frame to large format and I’m keen to collaborate with any other film geeks at home (Scotland) or worldwide, please get in touch!
My work is a bit of a compromise between landscape and street photography. I am more of an anthropologist than a photographer, despite the fact that you rarely see a person in any of my pictures, traces of humanity are omnipresent. The fingerprints society leaves behind, provide evidence of it’s impact. I am especially interested in the roughly defined line between nature and civilization, as well as man’s attempts to harness it’s beauty. I am also a bit of an archivist. Southern California had seen more development in the last 100 years than anywhere else in America. The world of my childhood is rapidly eroding and my vision of San Diego is altered on a daily basis. As people bring different values, ideas and visions to the region, they physically change the landscape. I enjoy documenting the change and taking little snippets with me. I almost always shoot from a sidewalk at eye level with a 35-50mm lens to closely mimic the human experience. I often use half frame cameras to document my surroundings and founded the Half Frame Club in summer of 2016.
Chris Tennyson is a Southern California based photographer who specializes in documenting rural towns. He finds most of his subjects in the American midwest.
Chris began his photographic journey at 14 and has continued for over 20 years. Not wanting to limit himself to one type of camera, he uses everything from 35mm to 8x10, pinhole to Polaroid. When not traveling in the midwest, Chris likes experimenting with different photographic arts. Past experiments have included restoring and shooting a Glossick cuban polaroid camera and shooting expired 8x10 Polaroid portraits. He is currently modifying a WWII era aerial reconnaissance lens to work on his 4x5 camera.
I am Clarence Dosdos, 42 years old. I am an Architect by profession. I started taking Photography seriously on 2008, taking various subject from Landscapes, architectures, portraits and any other that are trending at that time and even trending now.
Last year I took a complete turn and choose Street Photography as a genre to follow...at least for now. Knowing that photography styles are evolving and innovations so as variations are keep coming up.
I am currently living in Doha, Qatar. An Arab state which makes street photography more challenging.

After having travelled most of my youth with my parents, I am now still recovering from this and have been more recently using photograhy to catch images of where I am originally from, Northern France.
My camera is a Nikon FM2. I have a preference for Fuji’s Pro 400 H for color, Washi’s X and Kodak’s TX-400.

Jamelle Bouie is a political writer for Slate Magazine and analyst CBS News. For years, he’s done his own photography for his work, using a variety of digital cameras. But after acquiring a Konica Autoreflex TC in 2015, he’s been a dedicated film shooter. He shoots in multiple formats, typically uses black and white film, and works in the darkroom.
In keeping with his professional work, Jamelle’s photography tends toward the documentary-style, with an emphasis on street photography. He’s most concerned with people and their environments, used or otherwise. Which means, in addition to street work, he also shoots urban landscapes, seeking out unusual or abandoned areas of towns and cities. He is based in Washington D.C. and Charlottesville, Virginia, and spends considerable time in Baltimore, Maryland and New York City.
