Michael Kemp

My dad has collected National Geographic magazines for the majority of his life. I would thumb through every issue to look at the photographs as a kid. It was from those memories and experiences that I told myself I wanted to become a photographer, one way or another.

For now, film photography is a hobby. I shoot just about anything and everything, from people on the street to rocks in the sand.

I still haven’t been published in a National Geographic. Maybe one of these days... but probably not.

Until that happens, you can check out my photos on my Instagram. (www.instagram.com/inspektorkemp).

I don’t know when solitude ends and loneliness begins. My life is full of great people and I love spending time with them. I balance that with time alone, normally with an old film camera and a roll or two of black and white film.

I search for answers to internal questions. I look for the extraordinary in the everyday. I yearn for tranquility in the midst of life’s noise.

Film is such a beautiful medium. It has depth and structure that draws me in. Almost all of my favourite photographers and influences are film photographers. Almost all of them use only black and white film.

TRACEY NIXON BOS

A perfect storm led me back to film.  Unsatisfied with digital everything, determined to slay the exposure triangle, I unpacked my student camera and headed out to a local film festival.  It was here that I caught a showing of "Finding Vivian Maier".  My heart sang as I left the theatre, sensing that pieces were falling into place.  This pivotal point, with my K1000 in hand, was the beginning of my journey back to film. 

The entire process from pressing the shutter release to losing myself in the shadows of a black and white image, is a rush!  Instinct informs both what and how I shoot.  The more unpredictable the camera, the more abstract the image, the more satisfied I feel.  I carry a number of cameras ranging from toy to a bit more complex with me daily.  

I live with my husband and two sons in Michigan where most of my photography has happened.  Our dog, Zeus, is my enthusiastic sidekick.  He wanders the woods and wetlands that surround our home with me.  When he sees me pull out any camera, he knows it's GO Time.

Sam Margulis

My work explores the relationship between Critical theory and urban spaces.

With influences as diverse as Machiavelli and L Ron Hubbard, new insights are distilled from both mundane and transcendant dialogues.

Ever since I was a student I have been fascinated by the endless oscillation of relationships. What starts out as triumph soon becomes debased into a cacophony of defeat, leaving only a sense of decadence and the dawn of a new beginning.

As momentary replicas become frozen through diligent and repetitive practice, the viewer is left with an epitaph for the limits of our era.

Kornelije Sajler

Kornelije Sajler is an amateur photographer based in Rijeka, Croatia.

Almost by accident started photographic journey on New Year's Day of 2013 and started learning photography through digital camera and ways to manipulate images in post process. In start of 2016 upon developing his first medium format film and after few months in film, starts exclusively on analogue journey in black and white film photography.

Developing film by himself start to be challenging, interesting and relaxing. Having manual medium format camera and by doing everything slowly and manually made him better photographer and visualize final image more clearly.

Mostly landscapes were first subjects, but with film and most certainly with black and white view of world in his photography, there are now urban places, accidental people, interesting lighting and shadows. Kornelije had always interest in long exposures and its unpredictability especially with all uniqueness of film.

Each image is story by itself and unique view of the world through his lens that sometime is epic and majestic, but sometimes lonely and depressive. In future eager to learn darkroom printing and manipulating negatives to its unique prints.

Craig Goode

I’m Craig Goode a photographer, animator, film maker and designer based in Yorkshire, UK. Primarily a wedding photographer but I also shoot some fashion, still life & travel photography.

I love the feel of film, especially when shooting people, and the love affair it has with light. I love the imperfections which give it character and mood.

Chris Sartain aka ShutterTwinz

Hello FSC. I am a photographer based out of Clarksburg, MD. A small town just north of Washington, DC. I’m a family man, a film lover, and an identical twin (hence the name ShutterTwinz).

Me and my twin brother have the same passion for photography and find it’s a wonderful way to express our differences. We've been shooting for several years now and over that time we've learned many things, made plenty of mistakes, and met great people along the
way. My hope, is that being part of this community will motivate us to move in different directions, try new things, and take risks.

 Part of the appeal of film photography, to me, is trying new cameras, techniques, films, etc. Currently, my go to setup is my Hasselblad Xpan / 45mmf4.  Although, my Pentax 67 is never far behind. 

I am just as comfortable shooting the streets of DC, as I am taking long walks in the woods with nothing more than my thoughts and a couple rolls of B&W.  Photography gives me peace. It slows me down. Slows my life down. It is MY time.  My time to think, see, click, repeat.....

Tony Klimas

I grew up in the Midwest, just outside of Cleveland, OH. And while I have spent most of my adult life on the East Coast, the real me still longs for the banks of the Cuyahoga.  I've had a camera in my hand for a long time.  I still occasionally use the Pentax I received for my 12th birthday in 1977.  Like me (I hope) it's still going strong.  While I have done paid freelance work in the past, the current iteration of my photographic journey is kind of all about me.  Of course I love to share my photography with others, but it's really something I do for myself.  

In my day job, the proverbial real world, I am an executive at a large professional services firm.  I actually love what I do.  I get to travel, work with really smart people and for the most part, I find it very rewarding. It pays the bills too, which isn't a bad thing.  My real passion, however, and the thing that keeps me going, involves silver halide crystals seeing the light.  It helps me see the light too.  Someday, when I can barely press the shutter button and maybe not get out much, I plan to take up macro photogaphy.  For now, I'm trying out everything else.  While I currently split my time between New Jersey, NYC and Florida, like Chrissie Hynde, I may go back to my city soon.
