Given the pandemic, my wife and I decided not to stray too far from home this summer. Instead, I had big plans to take daily photo walks around the city, but that plan quickly fell through as Calgary has been almost constantly covered in a haze of smoke from forest fires originating in British Columbia.

A few years ago, when I first heard that Bellamy Hunt of Japan Camera Hunter would be launching a new film, I had to place an advance order. I shot this the day I finally received my ten rolls of brand new JCH Street Pan.
For the third installment in my Film on Film series, I have a lovely trio of B&W film: JCH Street Pan 400, Ferrania P30 Alpha 80, and Orwo NP7 400. JCH Street Pan 400 is a high-contrast film by Japan Camera Hunter that has given me mixed results. This is normal when shooting film. You […]
These photos are from my Film on Film project. A few years ago, I created a small photography studio in my basement. It’s really nothing more than a backdrop and a few strobes, but it has allowed me to practice shooting portraits and learn the fundamentals of lighting. Unfortunately, as time went on, the basement […]
I’ve been working on a new project. I’m photographing every roll of film I own on Fuji Instax Mini film. These are the first two rolls I’ve captured and they are part of a new series I’m calling Film on Film. They were shot using a Diana F+ with Instant Back and it took me […]
I own a Diana F+ camera with ‘all the fixins’. I bought the deluxe kit one year and also picked up the Instant Back. The result is that it’s a lot of fun to use all the Diana’s lenses while shooting Instax Mini. I shot this at a friend’s place on Fuji Instax Mini (Star […]
Still more photos from my trip to Elbow Falls with Sarah. These were shot on expired (and no longer available) Lomography Redscale 100. Its replacement is the much improved Lomography Redscale XR 50-200.
I shot this self-portrait with my Diana F+. At the time, I didn’t realize that I had forgotten to remove the Instax insert lens and so that’s why this photo is the way it is. There’s more from this roll of film if you’re interested.
I shot these at Lake Louise one winter with my then new Diana F+. I had been shooting Instax Mini with the Diana F+ and forgot to remove the little insert lens that makes the Instant Back work before loading 120 film. You can see it in the photos. It’s the oddly shaped black frame […]
