Why do you shoot film?

In our digital age, you might be wondering why I shoot film? 

My reason is simple, I think there is a beautiful quality to images captured on film that cannot be rivalled or replicated. 

I love the way film captures light, I love the grainy softness and the richness of colour. Film photography keeps me grounded and in the moment, it’s an art form that can’t be rushed. It requires me to feel the moment and be connected with my environment and subject. There is no instant gratification, the whole process requires time and patience.

Nothing can reproduce the tones, the softness, the grain and the colours that film produces.

To me there is something magical about the whole process of film and I LOVE it!!
