Japanese Haikyo 廃墟
A different view of Japan, the haikyo There is a word in Japanese for exploring old buildings, and that word is haikyo 廃墟. It means abandoned buildings, but it is understood that when you say the word you are going to explore the old buildings. Haikyo has become a bit of a trend in in Japan in recent years and with good reason. As Japan’s bubble economy collapsed in the late eighties a...

tokyo-camera-style: Earlier this year I posted a link to a video on youtube of a Hong Kong born Japan based photographer, Eric, shooting on the streets of China. (I assure you that finding yourself getting super hyped up to grab your camera and hit the streets is a completely normal response to that video. ) …
Eyes wide open; Being aware
blink and you could miss it I know I post a lot about cameras, but they are a bit of a thing for me, as you all know. Well, this time I thought I should post about something a bit different. Namely spatial awareness. Yeah, I know, keep it about the cameras, but I really feel that I need to talk about this subject. I think that it is important for you as a photographer to be spatially aware,...

The Rolleicord Vb Xenar 75mm
The Rolleicord TLR, a beautiful and capable camera I have always been a bit of a fan of the TLR camera, and there are not many more beautiful than Rolleiflex cameras. Rolleicord cameras were designed to be the less expensive brothers of the Rolleiflex cameras, but that does not mean they are any less capable. Nowadays when you think of a cheaper version of a camera, you can obviously see the...

Why I do what I do
This is why I do what I do There are a lot of people who ask me why I do what I do, and the answer is simple…I completely love what I do. Some people want to be an accountant, some people are born to be nurses, but for me I love cameras. But what I love even more than cameras are people. You see, for me this job the main thing is the people. I love going out to the stores and meeting...
Artisan & Artist Camera Straps
There are camera straps, and there are A&A camera straps And these are what I would call the Rolls Royce of camera straps. I go through a fair few camera straps, and often find some of them lacking. There are a few that I like, especially original branded ones (Ricoh GR for example), but most straps are pretty poorly designed or made. I currently use a MAP original leather strap on my...

Leica CL: The orphan Leica
The Leica that was not Or the orphan Leica as it may be known. This camera is a Leica, and it is a truly great Leica too. But the funny thing is, it is not really a Leica in the truest sense. It is a Minolta if you really want to be pedantic about it, and camera geeks are nothing if not pedantic. This camera and the other versions (Minolta CL, Minolta CLE) were all made by Minolta, with the...

New sale item: Leica 35mm Summilux f1.4 ASPH
Quite possibly one of the best lenses in the world Well well folks, I have something quite special for you all today. I have recently been able to source a stunning Leica Summilux 35mm ASPH 6-bit encoded lens. To say that this lens is beautiful would be an understatement, as the quality of build is sublime. The glass itself is wonderful too, sporting the nice balance of a 35mm focal length with...
