Dubai is a city that stirs the imagination. A futuristic, ultra-modern city, a playground for the world’s rich and famous, a city built on the edge of the world’s largest desert and one of the most beautiful seas, it is a magical place that evokes the feeling of Arabian folk tales, complete with the smells, tastes, and atmosphere you’d find while reading 1001 Arabian Nights.
We will be celebrating Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day at the Central Filling Station in Knoxville, Tennessee. It is a food truck park. Our Big Camera offers art food! We will share our homemade pinhole cameras and invite the community to take photos for this special day. Our camera crew will develop the paper negatives in the trailer darkroom and the images can be scanned and uploaded to the official website.
The true measure of life is in ones experiences. Powerful experiences are more enriching than material comforts. Its nice to have easy and comfortable access to beautiful places, but making a place more accessible can have the effect of taking the wild out of the wilderness experience.

In this article, I wanted to share a few more insights into my thoughts on photography as well as my new project. I have been on here on the Film Shooters Collective before with my previous book “memories from another world“, but for all those who have missed this post, let me introduce myself to you. My name is Tim Heubeck and I am a photographer based in Germany. I run a website, Instagram, and a YouTube channel; all under the name of wasteoflm.
I can’t quite remember when I got my first Spotmatic, it was a SP1000, screwmount version of a K1000 minus the hot shoe over a decade ago, I have my brother Alex to blame for enabling me. I later picked up an Asahi Pentax Spotmatic F from the Henry’s Clearance Centre when they were located on Queen St. in Toronto just west of the flagship store. Much later in 2013 on I grabbed a Spotmatic SP and II off Leica repair tech Dan Goldberg ‘s site when the Canadian dollar was at par.
