Delighted to receive the latest copy of Camercraft magazine today to find one of my images has been used on the front cover and an 8-page portfolio of my monochrome landscape work inside the magazine! The accompanying article explains my preference for film photography and Fuji, Hasselblad, Cambo and Leica film cameras. Cameracraft was launched in 2012 and is one of my favourite photography magazines, eschewing the usual crop of chocolate box pastel landscape and wannabe ‘professional’ portrait offerings usually seen on the shelves of WH Smith, Cameracraft is a breath of fresh air with a good spread of photographic interest, information and technical articles by David & Richard Kilpatrick, who are widely regarded as the most knowledgeable within the photographic and graphics industries. The print quality and paper grade is very high and I always look forward to receiving my bi-monthly edition of this excellent publication. I’m also very grateful to Icon Publications for showcasing my work and giving me the opportunity to fly the flag for fine art film photography. There has been no better time to work with film, whilst so many fine emulsions have been lost over recent years, several more incredibly good and very interesting new films have been quietly introduced. Adox in particular have created some amazing films and all are worth experimenting with and are deserving of our support.
Long live film photography!
