Daido Moriyama interview

Posted on by Bellamy

Does what it says on the tin. An interesting short interview with perhaps one of Japans most famous photographers Moriyama Daido on why he loves photography and what he sees. Pretty cool to see him using a Ricoh GR21, which is pretty much my dream compact camera. Cheers Japancamerahunter

Magnum Photobooks

Posted on by Bellamy

A great short video from Magnum in which a few of the great Magnum photographers such as Elliott Erwitt, Alex Webb, Bruce Gilden, Chris Steele-Perkins and others talk about the books they have produced. If anything it makes you want to go out and track down some of these gems. But hopefully it also inspires […]

This Mess We’re in with Trent Parke

She has an almost empathic view of Chicago. A very inspiring video. Hope you enjoy it. Cheers Japancamerahunter

Although there had been other SLR cameras, none had the […]

This is why I do what I do…

Posted on by Bellamy

Because I get to see stuff like this beauty, every single day. I love cameras, sometimes I think a little bit too much… It has to be said that there is a very fine line between a passion and an obsession, and to be honest with you, sometimes I am not really sure which one is […]

The faces of Japan

Posted on by Bellamy

There are millions of interesting faces, here are a few. We are surrounded by millions, but how often do we really look at their faces? I have been taking photos for years, and for the most part they have been either crap or in no form of direction. I decided recently that I really needed to […]
