Contacts : Leonard Freed

2 min read

Having recently been in the darkroom again after a long period of absence, I was fortunate enough to have the chance to produce about 50 contact sheets of my recent work. I had quite forgotten what a thoroughly rewarding and wasteful experience this was. Rewarding in that you can clearly see what you have been […]

Nobuyoshi Araki [part 1]

1 min read

Well, I thought it time that I put up a video about the notorious Araki. You cannot really escape his photography and the impact that he has had on Japanese photography. I was never a particular fan of the man or his work until I watched a documentary about him recently. What I saw was […]

Nikon 1 V1 video

2 min read

Yes, Nikon have finally announced it, after all this time and all the speculation Nikon has finally released its mirrorless camera system. Well, better late than never, but it looks already like they have thought them out quite well. Simplist design and high specs are going to make this a very popular product indeed. The […]

1 min read

I recently became re-acquainted with the work of the London photographer Johnny Stiletto after reading a piece about him on the BBC website. Although little is known about the photographer, he does managed to capture some really interesting street images. He recently released a book called ‘Vintage 80’s:London street photography‘ which documents humorous and sometimes […]

Seeing as I have posted a couple of pictures of Leica lenses this week, I thought it might be nice for you all to see the video of how they are made. Yeah, it is a slick piece of promo material, but it is nice nonetheless. You can really see why the damn things cost […]

2 min read

A nice little Sunday morning video by my good friend Mijonju. In this video he talks about the new GXR A12 mount from Ricoh. In case you have been living in a cave for the last few months I should probably give you a bit of info. Ricoh announced a few months back that the […]

Update—–He has now removed the video without making comment. I guess he wasn’t really prepared to take the heat.    This has been discussed on a number of other blogs(here, here and here), and seems to be doing the rounds on twitter as well, but I thought I should chuck my hat in the ring […]

I first came across the work of William Albert Allard when I was a teenager, as I was given a monthly subscription the National Geographic for my 13th birthday. For me NatGeo was a photographic revolution, I could not get over how people could capture such moving and inspiring images. Although I was not aware […]

Fujifilm X10 Promotional Video

1 min read

I managed to find a promotional video for the x10, though I would have hoped that Japan would have produced another one of the frankly disturbing video’s, like the did for the x100. This camera is certainly going to be popular, just as long as Fuji can price it correctly. It really doesn’t matter about […]

A fun little video made by my mate Irwin Wong, featuring a very handsome Japancamerahunter (look out of the fat spanner with the silly hat). Unfortunately I now have this bloody tune running around my head. Check out his site here. Cheers Japancamerahunter
