My name is Patrick Bresnahan. I'm originally from the United States, but I've been living in Korea for nearly eight years. I'm a professor of English conversation here. I'm 31 years old.
I've been interested in analog photography since 2011. My mom found my old 35mm SLR and sent it out to me. Right around that same time I saw this chunky plastic camera on my buddy's bookshelf. I inquired, and found out that it was a Holga. He showed me some photos he'd taken with it, and I knew I had to get one.
I fell in love with film photography at that point, with its grain and tangibility, and I began striving to learn more techniques. Over the past few years I've experimented with a number of styles - double exposures, cross processing, b&w / color infrared, pinhole, polaroid. I love it all, from gritty street photos, portraits, landscapes, to abstract lo fi imagery.
I'm very pleased and honored to be a part of the Film Shooters Collective. There are so many talented and brilliant photographers here, and I'm humbled to be part of such a great group.
