The Analogue Photography Series: Film is Still Alive

Leica M-A with 35mm f/1.4 Summilux Asph. CineStill 800T rated at ISO 800.
As many of you know, I am a film photographer. Yes I love all types of photography, but film is where it's at. If money was no object and I could choose to shoot with any camera and any format, I would use the Leica M-A and 35mm Summilux, and shoot with CineStill 800T and Kodak Tri-X for the rest of my life. Ok, maybe I'll have the Ricoh GR-21 as my back-up and shoot Portra 400 once in a while. Don't ask me about my negative storage workflow (I've been working on this for the past 25+ years).

For those of you who follow my YouTube channel, whenever I have the opportunity, I try my best to do film photography projects. I love interviewing film photographers, camera collectors, camera stores, and photo labs. However, these types of videos take more time, effort and cost, making it difficult for me to produce consistent content. Recently a good friend of mine encouraged me to apply for the StoryHive grant by submitting my pitch video, and it was accepted. Based on a voting system, the top 30 projects will get a $10,000 grant to produce their first episode of their web series. I'm hoping for your support by your vote to make my analogue photography project a reality. After the initial grant, there is another opportunity to receive a $50,000 grant to finish the series. This is the true goal for me and my series.


I will continue to do what I've already been doing, but with the grant I will create more analogue photography focused content and improve production quality. I will be able to hire a videographer and editor, and travel to more locations to find better content to share with you. If you wish to help me bring this content to life, please consider visiting the StoryHive website and vote for my series. Voting will be between September 18th to 22nd and every vote counts. You can also vote once a day. Thanks for all your support and let's make this thing happen!

Remember, you can vote once a day until September 22nd.

Thanks and happy shooting
