It’s a proud moment to see a photo I took being used by Kodak to promote Portra 800 in their latest brochure. It’s funny to think of the twists and turns that life takes; I remember being in a queue at the McDonald’s drive-thru, and I said to Erica, “I think I should get a medium format film camera.” And so it happened. Little did I know that from that moment, film would go on to dramatically alter the course of my life and change my relationship with photography and the things I take photos of. Here I am several years later running an international film lab from Canada and barely picking up a digital camera apart from the one contained in my iPhone. Film keeps me picking up my camera and keeps me looking at everything around me; I ‘see’ in film tones and in the proportions of my Pentax 67ii camera. I’d like to thank Tim Ryugo at Kodak Alaris for choosing my photo for the brochure and for being a strong advocate for film – it’s amazing to see film going from strength to strength at a time where some film manufacturers are seemingly blind to the evolution of modern film photography.
