Beers & Cameras – Birmingham Meet-up March 24th, 2018 – #BandCBRUM

March 24th 2018 Beers & Cameras is coming to Birmingham

I’ve been mulling over bigger meet-up for about 18 months now, but have finally pulled my finger out and decided to get it organised.

Working with my good mate and film photographer James, Birmingham resident and FSC photographer Richard P J Lambert, and Robert (LondonCameraProject) who is setting up and kicking off the first Beers & Cameras London early 2018, we have picked the date and begun to make plans for the day.

This event is free, open to all photographers. I’m also trying to bag a couple of sponsors so we can do a couple of give-aways on the day!

The Plan (as it stands)

We will start the day with a photo-walk across Birmingham. The loose plan is to meet at the train station, walk to new library for the views and architecture. We will then walk along the canals via Brindley Place where we can stop for some lunch. After lunch we will continue to ‘The Cube’ (huge modern building), then to new street, maybe the new station, the open air market, China town and then Digbeth for street art. From there we will find an accommodating establishment for some food and a few beverages into the evening.

Plans are loose at the moment, but I’d like to start getting an idea of numbers of people who might be interested in joining us. If you’re interested in coming – please give some or all of your details below.


I now have some sponsors:

Kodak Alaris have kindly offered to supply us with a whole load of film for the day. I have said that in return anyone who shoots a roll will contribute a little post to 35mmc to show off a few of the shots they took on the day.


Ilford photo are sending me some goodies… I shall decide what to do with these when I have them.

Peak Design have sent me a Cuff and Leash strap to give away on the day. I will do a little prize draw to pick the winner of these.

Cosyspeed have provided a Camslinger bag – again I will give this away as part of a prize draw.

[…] shots in this post are from a roll of Kodak Portra 160 very kindly donated by Kodak Alaris at the Beer and Cameras Birmingham photowalk. Colour film is a bit of an enigma to me, to be honest. I always wonder how you can get an accurate […]
