Was interviewed recently about my involvement with film photography and workshops taking place in Bangkok, Thailand. When asked why I shoot with film my answer was/is, ‘because it’s fun’. I believe each occasion calls for the right tool depending on what I want, therefore digital and film coexist for me. I went on to explain that film helped slow things down and most importantly to be present in the act of taking a photo. In the end, I believe my photos have improved.

I like instagram for the same reason. I treat it as my digital lomo-camera since it’s somewhat a crappy-fixed-lens. The filters makes things a little less mundane and I’ll admit I shoot with the filter already in mind. I am a fan of ‘early bird’.
