People strive to find their passion in life. As for me, I can say that I have found mine in film photography. The idea of using cameras that are over half a century old can still be used today to capture stills of our amazing planet deeply fascinates me. Also the tangibility of the photographs plays a vital role and it is immensely satisfying to look at and work with the negatives in the darkroom as opposed to a digital file on a computer. For my work I use films by Kodak, Agfa, Fuji, Adox and Ilford

So I'd like to welcome you to my website where I upload a collection of my photographs that I have taken over the years.

A selection of prints and zines can be ordered here.
